Calcap's beginnings date to the introduction of Canadian capital gains legislation in the early 1970's. As a consequence, virtually every private company in the country had to be 'notionally' valued for tax purposes. Recognizing this opportunity, Wayne Albo co-founded one of the first firms in Canada to to specialize exclusively in the valuation of privately held businesses.
Over time, many of Wayne's valuation clients sought advice on matters ranging from corporate growth strategies to selling their businesses. Hence, Calcap was founded in 1987 exclusively to meet the growing demand for transaction related advisory services of these business owners. In that same year, Wayne published the 1st edition of Mergers & Acquisitions of Privately-Held Businesses, which was soon recognized as the leading book on the subject in Canada. This book has now been released in it's 3rd edition.
