VPS StraightTalk Webinar Series: Advanced Issues in Business Valuation

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

Issues that appear to be basic can be surprisingly complicated. That’s why Jim Hitchner is continuing his webinar series on “Advanced Issues in Basic Business Valuation.” The first-year analyst and the seasoned BV veteran will both benefit from his take on concepts like S corps and controlling interests in Part 2 of 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.
