May is BV Month in Manhattan

BVWireIssue #67-3
April 16, 2008

It’s not official—but May might as well be declared “BV Month” in Manhattan.  First, the New York City Chapter of the ASA meets Monday, May 5th for its annual “Current Topics in Business Valuation.”  Panelists Ashok Abbott, Espen Robak, and John Finnerty—moderated by Scott Nammacher—will discuss various approaches to marketability discounts.  Stamos Nicholas will update applications of FAS 141R on purchase price allocations, while Nancy Fannon presents S Corp models and Jeffrey Tarbell joins John Paul Hanson on the valuation of financially distressed companies.  Nammacher closes with “Valuing Private Equity and Hedge Fund Interests.”  For more information—and to take advantage of an “early bird” price discount, available before April 25th, click here.

If you can make two days in Manhattan, join the New York State Society of CPAs for its annual BV Conference May 19-20, 2008.  This year boasts a truly impressive lineup:

  • First off are Susan Mangiero, Rob Slee, and Aswath Damodaran on “Calculating Risk in Business Valuation.” 
  • Nancy Fannon reprises approaches to S Corp valuations—this time with fellow-modelers Chris Treharne and Dan Van Vleet
  • Robert Cimasi takes on healthcare fraud, while Jim Hitchner tackles the reconciliation of BV Standards.
  • Mel Abraham tells how to correlate research data and Jan Tudor provides “cutting-edge” research applications. 
  • Lunch speakers include Cathy Reese, the attorney on the Kessler v. Dela. Open MRI case (Dela. Chancery, 2007) and John Porter, the attorney on this year’s reversal in Estate of Jelke
  • Last but hardly least, Judge David Laro offers his view of BV from the federal bench.
