As the American Home Mortgage case shows, an unprecedented wave of impaired and distressed business valuations is about to flood the legal and economic landscape. Says Jim Alerding, “I’ve been in this business since 1980 and we’ve never really had a situation where there are so many businesses that are distressed or impaired at a single time.”

This Thursday, November 5th, Alerding will join appraiser James Ewart and I-banker Robert Shortle to present “Companies in Distress: Valuing the Impaired and Currently Unprofitable,” a BVR teleconference (2 CPE credits available). From selecting the appropriate premise of value to considering the impact of liquidity and current capital markets, the panel will provide the tools to value impaired businesses in today’s economy.
