Share Article

Financial Poise™ Webinars and West LegalEdcenter are pleased to announce the May 16th premiere of a new webinar series “What's It Worth: Valuing a Business for Sale," designed for attorneys and business owners. Moderator Kevin Lane of Crowe Horwath joins panelists from firms including EisnerAmper, Roberts McGivney Zagotta and Value Defined to discuss how valuation experts value a business.

What is it worth? Valuation experts are commonly used by market participants to determine the price they are willing to pay or receive to transact a sale of a security, a business or a discrete asset. Valuations can be performed on assets such as equities, options, or business enterprises. They can also be performed on intangible assets such as patents and trademarks, or liabilities such as debt and contingent consideration. The concept of valuation permeates the business and legal world on a daily basis. Given the importance of valuation, it seems incongruous that two perfectly competent valuation professionals can conclude on significantly different values for the same subject interest. This Financial Poise Webinar series addresses this and, more broadly, discusses how valuation experts go about their work.

The second episode of the series, What's It Worth: Valuing a Business for Sale, (Register Here) airs on May 16th at 2pm CST and features Moderator Kevin Lane of Crowe Horwath. He is joined by Catherine McGivney of Roberts McGivney Zagotta, Tammy Hersh of EisnerAmper, and Garth Tebay of Value Defined.

A business owner or executive team may want to obtain an independent appraisal before going out to market to sell a business. Likewise, a prospective buyer may wish to use the services of an expert to value an acquisition target or discrete components of a target. This Financial Poise webinar provides an overview of how valuation experts go about valuing a going concern. It also covers recent trends in valuation multiples, approaches, value drivers, how synergies are factored into transaction values and how minority holdings in business may be discounted.

Each episode is delivered in Plain English understandable to business owners and executives without much background in these areas, yet is proven to be valuable to seasoned professionals. Each episode in the series brings you into engaging, sometimes humorous, conversations designed to entertain as it teaches. And, as with all Financial Poise Webinars, each episode in the series is designed to be viewed independently of the other episodes, so that participants will enhance their knowledge of this area whether they attend one, some, or all of the episodes.
