March 25, 2008

As part of its new ‘In the Industry Spotlight Series,’ BVR will host teleconferences focused on the valuation of specific industries, businesses, and business models. With each new edition, top BV experts and thought-leaders will guide listeners through the characteristics of the target industry and offer insights on how to deal with the complications they present to the appraisal process.

First up is Valuing Professional Practices, on Thursday, April 2, 2009 at 10:00-11:40am PT/1:00-2:40pm ET. Two CPE credits are available to attendees.

During this 100-minute teleconference, Kevin Yeanoplos, Ron Seigneur, and moderator Stuart Weiss, will focus on the hard-to-value aspects of service-oriented professional businesses—including issues relating to personal versus professional goodwill, cost of capital, the valuation of intangible assets, and the excess earnings method. This teleconference is necessary for any appraiser called to value the work of doctors, lawyers, dentists, insurers, CPAs, consultants, or any other business whose product is intangible. According to Yeanoplos, “whether [appraisers] have or haven’t been involved in a professional practice valuation, at some point, they will.” To register and listen to Yeanoplos describe the program, click here.
