Program Description

This webinar defines the meaning of risk and explores how different factors impact the level of risk that an investor faces as a result of investing in the ownership interest in a business. This session also explores a different way of breaking risk down into components and quantifying the level of risk from each component so that the appraiser can present it in an understandable manner in his/her report.

Learning Objectives:

After completing this webinar, attendees will be able to:

- Define "risk"
- Identify and understand risks resulting from different factors (i.e., economic, market, industry, and business)
- Calculate the level of risk resulting from each factor using analytical tools such as coefficient of variation, ratio analysis, DuPont analysis, bankruptcy prediction models, etc.
- Summarize your risk assessment due diligence within your business valuation report and conclusion
