What’s in the December 2017 issue of Business Valuation Update

BVWireIssue #182-4
November 29, 2017

Here’s what you’ll see:

  • “Inside Pratt’s Stats: Impact of Entity Form on Selling Price (Part 1)” (Eric J. Barr, Marks Paneth, and Peter L. Lohrey, Montclair State University). This is a two-part article that explains how transaction size and the entity form of the buyer and seller support the existence (and the magnitude) of the “pass-through entity premium” where the buyer is able to take advantage of the pass-through status of the seller. This article is based on the results of various statistical analyses of Pratt’s Stats transactional data.
  • “A Reflection on Low Risk-Free Interest Rates” (Matthew Crane, Marshall & Stevens Inc.). Although business appraisals often do not concern themselves with the details of monetary policies, given the current low-interest-rate environment, it’s useful for appraisers to have a historical perspective, in addition to understanding some of the relevant economic theories regarding the outlook for changes in interest rates.

The issue also includes:

  • Regular features: “BV News At-a-Glance/Global Perspective,” “Ask the Experts,” and “Tip of the Month.”
  • BV data spotlight: “Pratt’s Stats MVIC/EBITDA Trends,” “ktMINE Royalty Rate Data,” “Economic Outlook for the Month,” and “Cost of Capital Center.”
  • BVLaw Case Update: The latest court cases that involve business valuation issues.
