Program Description

This informative webinar will discuss why appraisers should consider using the Implied Private Company Pricing Line (IPCPL) Model by commenting on the major problems with the Build-Up Method/Modified Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM). We will then describe the IPCPL including how it was created and the fact that it solves all of the major problems with the Build-Up Method. Finally, we will introduce the free Build-Up Method Weighted Average Cost of Capital (WACC) calibrator model.

Learning Objectives

- Recognize the serious reliability issues with the Build-Up Method/Modified CAPM
- Explain how the IPCPL solves these inherent problems
- Define the IPCPL and how it was created
- Utilize the IPCPL/IPCPM to mitigate guesswork and improve reliability when estimating a privately-held company’s cost of capital

Who Should Attend

Appraisers, M&A analysts/brokers and especially appraisers who wish to expand their practice into the rapidly growing area of transaction pricing brought about by the demographic bump of baby-boomer business owners selling their businesses
