Learn about minority and illiquidity discounts and how they may impact the valuation of your asset.
CHICAGO (PRWEB) November 14, 2018
What’s it worth? Whether you are engaged in the sale of an asset or attempting to recover damages in litigation, valuations are often necessary for convincing the other side that your price is right.
In transactions, valuations assist parties in determining the price they are willing to pay or receive in the sale of a security, business, or asset.
In litigation, valuations play a critical role in setting a baseline for damages awards. Expert assistance is required to accurately value many assets, whether it is a business, a security, an intangible asset such as intellectual property or a brand, or lost profits in a litigation context. Choosing the appropriate valuation expert can make or break your transaction or your case, given the extensive battles between valuation experts that arise in contested matters.
This Financial Poise VALUATION 2018 webinar series provides an overview of valuation in its many contexts, from business valuations in transactions to battles between valuation experts in all aspects of litigation.
The fourth episode of the series, Minority and Illiquidity Discounts, airs on November 15th at 10:00 AM CST (Register Here) and features Moderator Kathryn Nadro of Sugar Felsenthal Grais & Helsinger. She is joined by Richard Claywell of The Office of J. Richard Claywell CPA, Gary Frantzen of Alvarez & Marsal Holdings, LLC, and Todd Mitchell of CBIZ Valuation Group.
Like the sale of goods, sometimes the share of ownership in a company must be discounted due to difficulty in finding a buyer. Liquidation costs of equity in private businesses may be substantial, and the equity’s value is discounted for that potential illiquidity. Likewise, partial ownership of a private firm may be worth less than proportional share of the total business. This webinar delves into these types of discounts and how they may impact the valuation of your asset.
