Recording of VPS StraightTalk Webinar Series: COVID-19 and Business Valuation – One Year Later – What Worked and What Didn’t
with Jim Hitchner, CPA/ABV/CFF, ASA

It has been a long year, with many challenges in business valuation. We have tried a lot of things; some have worked, and some have not. Learn how business valuation changed during 2020 and get better tools and data NOW to help you prepare a valuation. In this webinar we will cover the right tools for computing discount, growth, and capitalization rates; economic and industry data; discounts and premiums; supportable income, market, and asset approach methods; and BV standards.

Learning Objectives:

The participant will learn about the issues in the following areas:

  • A new look at valuation dates and the “known or knowable” concept
  • How to apply probabilistic scenario analysis in the CCF
  • Alternatives to using probabilistic/scenario analyses in the DCF
  • Examples of discount rates and why you must look beyond the data inputs
  • Company-specific risk – Is it the great equalizer in this pandemic?
  • New support for interim and long-term growth rates
  • A fresh look at the guideline company transactions method
  • The challenges of using public market data
