BVWireIssue #149-2
February 11, 2015

Buy-sell agreements are an integral element in exit planning, which is now a topic of great interest in the valuation community. However, provisions of buy-sell arrangements can be included in a number of different organizational documents, such as shareholder agreements, operating agreements, partnership agreements, and bylaws.

Sneak peek: Attendees at the February 12 BVR webinar, Buy-Sell Agreements, will receive an advance copy of an article written by the webinar’s presenters, Brian D. Burns and Chris Mitchell, both with Dixon Hughes Goodman. The article will appear in the March issue of Business Valuation Update. It provides an overview of the documents that govern the operation of businesses and the importance of buy-sell agreements in valuation services.

During the webinar, Burns and Mitchell will focus on the valuation implications of buy-sell agreements, including factors that influence value and selecting the method to determine the purchase price. The speakers will also discuss how the courts view buy-sell agreement disputes, and they will give practical examples of disputes and eventual outcomes.
