Subsequent events can be a BV appraiser’s worst nightmare

BVWireIssue #76-1

“The trouble with our times is that the future is not what is used to be.” ~Paul Valery
Never were words truer to the practice of business valuation. Indeed, events that occur long after the valuation date can cause headaches and confusion from the courtroom to the valuation report. Questions that BV analysts must consider: Which events should be given merit? How can you account for subsequent events? How does one distinguish the “known” from the “knowable” or “foreseeable?”

For answers to these questions and a discussion of other “burning issues,” join Jay Fishman, FASA; Jim Hitchner, CPA/ABV, ASA; Mike Mard CPA/ABV, ASA; Shannon Pratt, CFA, FASA, MCBA, CM&AA; and attorney Chuck Rettig on Thursday, January 8 (10:00am-11:40am PT / 1:00pm-2:40pm ET) for a can’t-miss, in-depth discussion at this week’s teleseminar, “Subsequent Events.” This all-star panel will cover uses of accounting guidelines and standards, judicial practices, the practicality of solutions to subsequent event problems, and so much more.
