Program Description

Regression analysis will put your market approach on a scientifically sound footing. This statistical tool 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. By using the basic data from Pratt's Stats or Bizcomps, you will be able to statistically predict the appropriate multipliers for your subject. The challenges to your selection process for multipliers will be eliminated and no more huge gaps between multiplier values.

Learning Objectives

After completing this webinar, attendees will be able to:

- Use Excel's regression analysis
- Apply Excel's regression analysis to market approach methodologies
- Filter a sample of comparables to statistically identify outliers that are skewing your data significantly
- Use regression to statistically predict the proper revenue multiplier and cash flow multiplier for the subject thus eliminating the messy subjective selection process
