What Clients Say
Cabrillo Advisors assisted us with a unique project prior to a formal round of financing; they were a helpful resource for an advisory project. We also use their team for IRC 409a compliance projects and have recommended them to others.
Tom Proulx,Chairman at Netpulse
We were happy to have Cabrillo Advisors as our valuation specialist; their deliverable was well received by the audit firm so the review process went rather smoothly. We look forward to working with Cabrillo Advisors again on upcoming valuation projects.
Jonathan Cook,Controller at Instructure
I have used Cabrillo Advisors pretty much since the beginning and can say that I am delighted with their level of service and analysis.
Patti Pao,Founder & CEO at Restorsea
As OneRoof Energy Group (TSXV:ON) prepared for an initial public offering via reverse merger transaction as part of listing the Company’s securities on the TSX Venture Exchange, we engaged Cabrillo Advisors to deliver 409A business enterprise valuations for us. The selection of the appropriate methodologies for the allocation of value, the keen consideration of numerous internal and external factors relating to the Company’s business enterprise value, and the insight gained from multiple two-way discussions were all critical elements in the delivery of the excellent service and ultimate product we received from Cabrillo Advisors. Wade Hansen and his team are extremely knowledgeable in the areas of business valuation, financial accounting and valuation analysis and we would not hesitate to retain Cabrillo Advisors in the future.
Dan Halvorson,Executive Vice President & CFO at One Roof Energy
We hired Cabrillo Advisors to assist us with a complex business valuation project. It was very difficult with many issues to be worked through, and required frequent interaction with management, external auditors and our audit committee. We greatly appreciated their professionalism, and found them to be very helpful and constructive.
Greg Tibbitts,CFO at Accriva
Our Company began using Cabrillo Advisors last year to perform 409a work. This year our Company began a process to confidentially file an S-1 registration statement that involved very tight deadlines for producing FMV and Warrant Liability valuations. Not only did Cabrillo Advisors meet the deadlines, but they responded to questions from auditors/others on virtually a 24/7 basis. Senior Cabrillo Principals even participated in calls with Board members and investors to resolve various questions after the project concluded. The Company would be way behind its goals if Cabrillo Advisors were not its partner."
We found the team at Cabrillo Advisors to be very dedicated and responsive to client needs.

Wade and his team at Cabrillo have worked with many of my clients on 409A and enterprise valuations recently. I have been impressed by Wade's command of the issues, professionalism and pragmatic approach with clients...
Brady Berg,Member at Mintz Levin
The 3E Company, the leading provider of EH&S product and regulatory compliance data and outsourced service based solutions, had commissioned Cabrillo Advisors to provide valuation services and advice during the second half of 2009. Led by its founder Wade Hansen, the Cabrillo team of professionals impressed 3E with their intelligence, market savvy and experience along with their efficient use of time and resources in delivering a high quality and well-balanced 409A analysis. I would highly recommend Wade Hansen and his team at Cabrillo Advisors.
