Utilizing the Implied Private Company Pricing Model: The Cost of Capital Wizard (March 5), featuring Robert Dohmeyer (Dohmeyer Valuation Corp.), Peter Butler (Valtrend), and Rod Burkert (Burkert Valuation Advisors).

On March 5, they return with Butler to unveil the implied private company pricing model (IPCPM), a derivation of IPCPL that adjusts for companies with outlier fundamental characteristics and allows for a departure from the IPCPL.
