Program Description

Clinic 1 of this three-part webinar series will introduce you to the key factors that experienced valuators consider when they evaluate and start new business valuation projects. Why? Because evaluating engagement risk, getting the necessary information, and having the right tools is how your practice stays out of trouble and prospers.

Learning Objectives

After completing this 5-part Clinic 1, attendees will be able to:

- Scope and budget a valuation project
- Prepare a tighter engagement letter
- Make information requests and site visits more productive
- List options to perform valuations with today's technology

Clinic 2 of this three-part webinar series will address the requisite financial statement analysis, economic overview, and industry outlook that create the back story for every valuation assignment. We'll then dive head first into the Asset- and Income- based Approaches to valuation. The former is not as easy as you think; the latter not as hard.

After completing this 5-part Clinic 2, attendees will be able to:

- Explain the pros and cons of generally accepted data sources used to benchmark financial performance
- Relate the economic and industry outlooks to company risk
- Handle excess or non-operating assets and liabilities
- Identify appropriate methods and data sources for developing discount rates
- Distinguish between normalizing and control adjustments
- Determine whether and when the CCF or DCF method is more appropriate

Clinic 3, the final part of this three-part webinar series will start with the market approach (guideline transactions and guideline comparables), then move onto one of the most difficult areas of the engagement: quantifying and applying supportable discounts and premiums. Finally, we'll pull it all together by reconciling the conclusions from the valuation methods considered and used.

Learning Objectives

After completing this 5-part Clinic 3, attendees will be able to:

- Research, analyze, and interpret data set forth in various transaction databases
- Conduct a thorough search for guideline public comparable information
- Adjust guideline public comparable multiples for size and growth relative to a subject company
- Assess company and interest factors most likely to affect control and marketability
- Evaluate the best qualitative and quantitative methods suitable for a particular subject company
- List the appropriateness of weighting multiple methods
