Front-burner valuation training events

BVWireIssue #130-4
July 31, 2013

Next week, there are two CPE events of particular interest to valuation experts.

Cost of capital: When it comes to cost of capital determination, the only constant may be uncertainty. As a newly compiled bibliography of BVR coverage shows (available via our free resources page), since 2008, no less than 14 BVR webinars and 27 articles in the Business Valuation Update have focused on cost of capital-related issues. At least seven court case digests covered in BVLaw have also touched on these issues.

To tie all this together, the August 8 Advanced Workshop on Cost of Capital will feature BV “hall of famers” Kevin Yeanoplos (Brueggeman and Johnson Yeanoplos) and Ron Seigneur (Seigneur Gustafson). In an intensive, interactive, four-hour presentation, you will learn about everything from CAPM and the size premium to how to use available data and how pass-through entities affect cost of capital.

Economic damages: Reports & Reporting Standards in Litigation, Part 6 of BVR’s Online Symposium on Economic Damages, features experts Michael Crain (The Financial Valuation Group) and Jim Alerding (Alerding Consulting) discussing how financial professionals can navigate the standards, case law, and best practices that govern how their works are prepared. Attendees to this August 6 webinar will hear what can make the difference between a report being defensible or inadmissible.
