VPS StraightTalk Webinar Series:  Advanced Issues in Basic Business Valuation Part 2

Speaker: Jim Hitchner, CPA/ABV/CFF, ASA

No, this is not a contradiction in terms. Issues that appear to be basic can be surprisingly complicated. The first-year analyst and the seasoned BV veteran will both benefit from Jim Hitchner’s take on these concepts.

Our first Advanced Basics webinar was so popular that we bring in new topics, like S-corps and controlling interests, to continue this series.

The bottom line is that while the valuation profession has come a long way, we still can’t come together and agree on many–and we mean many–basic valuation issues. That is why part 2 of this webinar series will make you feel more comfortable that you know and are able to apply valuation fundamentals in the most supportable way.
