CHICAGO, IL (PRWEB) May 20, 2016
“What is it worth?” A valuation (or appraisal) can be performed on virtually any asset: the equity of a company or options to buy the equity of a company; intangible assets (such as patents and trademarks- or even contingent liabilities); real estate; and any sort of personal property. The concept of valuation permeates the business and legal world for reasons that include investment analysis, capital budgeting, merger and acquisition transactions, financial reporting, taxable events to determine the proper tax liability, and litigation, among others.

Bankruptcy trustees, debtors, and liquidating trusts often file claims against former insiders (such as shareholders and executives) for alleged fraudulent transfers. They also commonly sue suppliers on account of having received preferential payments in the weeks leading up a bankruptcy case. The outcome of such litigation revolve around the value of the debtor’s assets and whether the debtor was solvent and/or adequately capitalized at the time of those transfers. This Financial Poise™ webinar provides a brief overview of such litigation and explains how experts determine retrospective solvency and asset values.
