A day with Damodaran, brought to you by San Fran VRT

BVWireIssue #114-3
March 21, 2012

How would you like to spend an entire day learning from Professor Aswath Damodaran (NYU Stern School of Business), accompanied by economist Stephen Wood (Insight Economics)? Then book your calendar (and possibly your flight) for Friday, April 20, when the Valuation Roundtable of San Francisco hosts its 26th annual meeting at the Claremont Resort & Spa in Berkeley, Calif.

This year, Wood will kick off the gathering by addressing the state of the economy in this election year. The recovery from the recession has been erratic, Wood says, with some measures of economic activity surpassing their pre-recession peaks but many others lingering below their previous cyclical highs. Substantial downside risks are still present, including massive fiscal deficits and burgeoning federal debt. How will the economy navigate these shoals? Wood will provide VRT attendees his exclusive insights.

The bulk of the day, however, will be devoted to lectures by Damodaran, including three hours on “The Dark Side of Valuation: How to Value Difficult Companies.” After a break, the Professor will end the day with two hours on “Valuation Pitfalls” and how to avoid them. Each session will invite questions and participation from attendees. To take advantage of this unique opportunity, contact Claudia Martin at 408-961-6320 or CMartin@bpmcpa.com.
