Program Description

In today's complex financial market, it is clear that debt, specifically interest bearing debt (IBD), is as important in valuing a private firm as any other valuation input or matrix. Critical flaws are often a direct result of incorrectly dealing with IBD, either in the firm's cash flows, or terminal value, or both. In this webinar, we discuss when or when not to use cash flows to equity or invested capital and how to handle IBD within the terminal value.

Learning Objectives

After completing this webinar, attendees will be able to:

- Calculate interest bearing debt
- Identify when to use cash flows
