Part 3 of our COVID-19 Business Valuation Webinar series will focus on a detailed case study that values a business as of March 31, 2020, with COVID-19 “known or knowable.” This case study includes the capitalized cash flow (CCF) method, the discounted cash flow (DCF) method, the cost of capital, the guideline company transactions method (GCTM), and the guideline public company method (GPCM). We won’t just TELL you what to do, we will SHOW you what to do. It’s time for action, and we will deliver.
