Hi,
how long can a valuation / merger modelling project be?
What would be the "normal" duration?
I can assume that there are some quick and dirty "a couple of hours" projects, but how long would be the real project - say within a merger /fairness opinion/equity research?

In a bank, Big 4 or corp dev dept.

Thanks.
