During his recent webinar, The Excess Earnings Method, James Alerding (Alerding Consulting) conducted a live poll of participants, asking first whether they used the method in their standard valuation practices. The pool appeared almost evenly split, with 51% saying they still apply the EEM and 48% saying they do not.

A second question asked for further clarification. In response, 38% of participants said they used the traditional EEM and 9% use the excess compensation method; only 13% used both methods and 39% said they used none.
