Business owners contemplating the sale of their business should not ignore opportunities for estate and charitable planning arising in this context and, necessarily, prior to the transaction closing. This webinar will provide an overview of these opportunities; and then will go into detail regarding how valuation analysts should approach an independent valuation of minority interests prior to the completion of a contemplated sale.
Overview of pre-sale gifts, related party sales, GRATs, and charitable contributions
Overview of the transaction process, timeline, and key risks/hurdles to successful completion
Why Fair Market Value of a minority interest may differ materially from the potential transaction proceeds
How to support key adjustments to the potential transaction value to arrive at Fair Market Value, including evidence from the public equity markets
After completing this webinar, attendees will be able to:
- Recommend some of the key estate and charitable planning opportunities available to clients while they are working towards the sale of their business
- Determine situations where the Fair Market Value of a minority interest differs from the potential transaction value
- Analyze the key issues surrounding a potential transaction and how they impact Fair Market Value
- Prepare a thoughtful, well supported valuation analysis that will withstand future scrutiny
