Program Description

The Market Approach is dangerous and expensive. However, it is still required as an approach to consider when valuing a business and intangible assets. This webinar will describe why the market approach should be viewed as another form of the income approach.

As such, certain considerations must be given to how the comparable data is obtained, and what should be done with the multiple before it is applied to the subject company or asset. The focus will be on common errors of omission and commission in the application of the approach.

Learning Objectives

After completing this webinar, attendees will be able to:

- Reconcile the market approach with the income approach in the valuation of a business or intangible asset
- Describe and defend the methodology and the source of comparable company multiples
- Explain the applicability of the approach in M&A consulting
- Observe and detect flaws in the application of the method in both the participant's work and the work of opposing experts
