For nearly a quarter century Kaulkin Ginsberg has been the leading authority on assessing market value of privately owned companies within the accounts receivable management industry. We have an extensive track record of helping owners, investors and private equity firms determine the fair market value of businesses and portfolios of distressed assets.
In 2014 Kaulkin Ginsberg Company launched a new corporation, Topline Valuation Group, LLC, in partnership with Santos, Postal & Company, P.C., the premier certified public accounting firm in the Washington, D.C. metro area, servicing small and midsize companies.
Fueled by the powerful combination of Kaulkin Ginsberg and Santos, Postal’s vast resources and executive-level experience, Topline provides owners and executives with much-needed technical, financial and benchmarking services designed to improve decisions at the corporate and operational levels. Services include valuations, market assessments, due diligence investigations, business modeling, forecasting, dispute resolution and financial consulting.
The experienced leadership team consists of certified valuation professionals, experienced businessmen, M&A professionals and CPAs with more than 125 years of combined experience serving the needs of middle-market companies and their owners.
We utilize our extensive market knowledge to perform an assessment of value that is both realistic and respected. While other valuation firms concentrate primarily on financial performance and must repeatedly research the industry to come up to speed on comparables, we utilize our unparalleled and ongoing market knowledge and proprietary market data to develop all of our opinions.
”The valuation K&G put together on my agency made it easier to buy out my partner when the opportunity presented itself. It was also nice to know what my agency was worth and that there were buyers out there for my size of agency.
The questions that K&G asked for my agency valuation took some time and effort to get answered. The answers to those questions, along with K&G's knowledge and experience provided me with a very professional, informative valuation of my company. Worth the time, money and effort.”

”Even with the help of both sides’ CPAs and attorneys we found ourselves at a six month standstill. We knew it was time to bring in the experts and we knew there was only one true industry expert to choose – Kaulkin Ginsberg. Their responsiveness and concise industry knowledge helped us to confidently carve a path to an amicable resolution within weeks.”

”I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and your team for your excellent work in preparing an estimate of value for our investment company.
When I originally contacted you, I requested a fairly tight deadline that you agreed to meet. Part way through the engagement, the deadline was moved up even further. Your delivery of the report ahead of schedule is much appreciated.
The content of the report provided a great deal of insight regarding industry transactions, value drivers and how our investee company fits into the mix. This information adds true value for us and will be used if further investment decisions are contemplated.
Finally, I want to thank you for your quick response to questions that we had, some of which arose well after the final report was issued. I would highly recommend your service to others and your firm will be our first choice should we have any further need for services in the CRM/call center industry”

”Kaulkin Ginsberg exercised professionalism and expressed a non-biased independent opinion on a very difficult valuation. We were impressed by the methodologies used to reach the valuation. If we had to do it a second time, Kaulkin Ginsberg would be our vendor of choice."
