Listen to a podcast with Jaime d’Almeida, a managing director in the Duff & Phelps disputes and investigations practice, who explains that forensic analysis in valuation is not all about uncovering fraud. It’s about applying a scientific methodology to the subject company’s data in order to test and adjust (if necessary) the financial statements that form the basis of a business valuation. D’Almeida, who is credentialed in business valuation and forensics, is interviewed by Peter Mahler, a business divorce attorney with Farrell Fritz in New York. They talk about the conceptual framework and discuss practical tips for an effective analysis of a subject firm’s financial metrics. By the way, Mahler has an excellent blog and he’s done a whole series of podcasts on business divorce, many of which include valuation issues. Check them out!
