Program Description

This webinar will provide an overview of valuing equity securities, where and how valuing equity securities fits into your valuation practice, and how to correctly apply the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants' (AICPA) Practice Guide on valuing equity securities. This webinar will also cover the top three mistakes made when valuing equity securities.

Components of equity securities, key value drivers, and acceptable models, which can address the valuation of these assets, will all be discussed. Consideration will be given to the uses of valuations of equity securities of privately held companies with complex capital structures, performed and audited for common share fair value for pricing of stock options (IRC 409A), portfolio valuation (ASC 820), M&A, pre-IPO considerations, litigation support, investment in real estate with preferred returns, and simulations of next round financing or exit strategies. Certain items of the AICPA Practice Aid will be presented, including current thinking on allocation models.

The discussion will cover these and other important matters:

Understanding a term sheet and different rights associated to preferred stock Valuation approaches
How to select the right valuation method for valuing equity securities
Methods for valuing equity securities
- Discount for Lack of Marketability
Common mistakes
- How to expand your valuation practice to offer these services (if you are not currently offering these services)
