Best kept secret in the BV-world?

BVWireIssue #58-2
July 11, 2007

The business valuation blog written by Rand Curtiss may be the “best kept secret on the Internet,” according to the Institute of Business Appraisers, which publishes the blog at its website (look under the “Discussion Group” link).   The postings are practical, no-nonsense, and fast-paced.  The ten most recent appear with the current day’s blog, and archives contain past discussion threads.  Subjects are far-ranging, from “What kind of BV work do you want to do?” to the technical aspects of risk and return adjustments.  The most recent issue of the IBA’s newsletter, also available at its website, lists twenty of the “Pop Quiz” topics that appeared on the blog, including whether the Gross decision on tax-affecting makes sense, how to respond to a seller who wants you to value unreported income, and more.

For the good that they do:  Also of note from this year’s IBA Symposium in Denver, the second annual ”On the Shoulders of Giants” award went to Stanley L. Pollock, DMD, CBA, PhD, JD and his wife, Debbie Pollock, for their contribution of $50,000 toward the establishment of the Ray Miles Business Appraisal Research Foundation.  Chris Treharne will help spearhead the project; we’ll keep you posted with details and fundraising efforts in future issues.
