Program Description

Attendees will learn how to use Excel's regression analysis and to apply it to Market Approach methodologies. Learn how regression analysis can filter a sample of comparables to statistically identify outliers that are skewing your data significantly. Attendees will be shown how to use regression to statistically predict the proper revenue multiplier and cash flow multiplier for the subject, thus, eliminating the messy subjective selection process. Learn why every appraiser makes a critical error when he selects the upper or lower quartile or standard deviation of the multipliers to apply to his or her subject company.

Learning Objectives:

After completing this webinar, attendees will be able to:

- Describe how regression analysis will put your Market Approach on a scientifically sound footing
- Identify the statistical tool that can eliminate the embarrassingly huge differences in values that typically occur when using current methodologies to select the gross revenue multipliers and the cash flow multipliers
- Use the basic data from Pratt's Stats or Bizcomps to be able to statistically predict the appropriate multipliers for your subject
- Identify how the challenges to your selection process for multipliers will be eliminated, including no more huge gaps between multiplier values
