Here’s what you’ll see:

  • “The Residual Contribution Method for Valuing a Corporate Brand” (René Hlousek, Beacon Valuation Group LLC). In 2004, the author published a paper that introduced a new school of thought to the valuation of a corporate brand. This has since evolved into a method he refers to as the residual contribution method (RCM), which he explains in this article, on which feedback is encouraged and welcome.
  • “Review: Discount for Lack of Marketability Guide and Toolkit” (Harold G. Martin Jr., Keiter). BVU was able to arrange for a “sneak preview” of a soon-to-be released “groundbreaking” calculator for a discount for lack of marketability based on restricted stock transactions. The model also incorporates option methodology and includes a qualitative factors assessment tool.
  • “Fair Value Experts Offer Their Insights on ASC 805” (BVR Editor). The launch of the new Certified in Entity and Intangibles Valuation, or CEIV, credential has thrust the issue of fair value into the spotlight.
