The analyst has completed all the analysis required by the standards and utilized several methods to value the business. Now it is time to come to a conclusion and present the basis for the opinion of value. What should the analyst consider? What are the criteria for selecting the primary method? Should multiple methods be weighted? This session will address those questions and more related to the theory that all methods should, theoretically, lead to the same conclusion. This session will assist the practitioner in reconciling that theory with the reality of actual engagements.
