What is a Cannabis Equipment Appraisal
An appraisal of cannabis grow, extraction or processing equipment is an unbiased opinion of value that is accurate, defensible, and completed by an accredited, qualified professional. Sencer Appraisal’s cannabis industry equipment appraisals are completed by accredited equipment appraisers of the American Society of Appraisers and certified as compliant with the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP).
In 2019, American cannabis industry companies raised over $116 billion in capital. This boom has led to businesses, bankers, accountants, courts, and attorneys all frequently asking for cannabis equipment appraisals.
True Market Valuations for the Cannabis Industry
The cannabis industry marketplace is active and continually evolving. Pricing for new equipment may fall as manufacturers bring new and improved versions of their equipment to market, and this has an effect on the values of used equipment. Our appraisals address the value in the context of the industry, which can benefit your company by protecting your equipment from being under or overvalued.
As private companies working with marijuana and hemp work to expand their market, they need access to outside capital sources. Unfortunately, many of these companies may not have solid financial records in place that adhere to accounting standards. Sencer Appraisal has performed valuations in the cannabis industry to allow companies to create a formal beginning balance sheet that can serve as the basis of financial reporting to potential investors.
Cannabis equipment appraisers can also be used to gain insurance coverage in case of loss. Since many companies do not have detailed records of their purchases, they can be left exposed when there is a loss. By using an up-to-date market valuation, companies can make ensure their assets aren’t over or under-insured. Without a USPAP-compliant equipment appraisal, you may not be able to claim the appropriate coverage.
