We are often engaged by lenders, attorneys, accounting firms, CFOs, tax directors and controllers as well as publishing or data listing ownership groups and/or their leadership teams. Simply put, we’re the trusted authority and independent valuation experts for all of the media and entertainment trade.

Still, the Globe didn’t lose all of its value at once. In 2010, when entrepreneur Aaron Kushner came calling only to be turned away by Times Co. management, a sale would likely have fetched $120 million in the view of media appraiser Kevin Kamen. By February of this year, he’d adjusted his estimate down to $63 million, just $7 million off the actual price Henry paid. (Kamen was similarly on target in guessing how much Tribune Co. would sell Newsday for; Cablevision CVC +5.2% paid $650 million for it in 2008.) Jeff Bercovici, Forbes
Kevin Kamen, a media appraiser at Kamen & Co. Group Services in Uniondale, NY correctly predicted as far back as 2010 that a buyer would be willing to pay $42 million to $51 million for The Journal . . .”They paid about $4 million to $5 million more than they should have,” Kamen told WPRI.com . . . Kamen suggested GateHouse was motivated to pay a premium in part to ensure a competing newspaper chain didn’t get The (Providence) Journal instead. Ted Nessi, Reporter, WPRI 12 / WPRI.com
