In Business Valuation Issues in Bankruptcy, BVR welcomes expert appraisers Jeff Risius and Jesse Ultz for an in-depth examination of the opportunities and challenges the bankruptcy process poses. While distressed and bankrupt businesses have made headlines recently, their reorganization and, at times, resurrection have owed a great deal to appraisers working on such issues as asset/collateral valuation matters, shareholder value disputes within the process, and fairness issues related to the valuation of securities. In their 100-minute presentation, Risius and Ultz will discuss how to identify these and other valuation opportunities and how the bankruptcy process creates challenges every appraiser should know. Areas to be covered include: adequate protection, claims determination, plan confirmation, and asset recovery issues. Advanced valuation issues that arise in the valuation of distressed companies will be addressed. The presentation will include illustrative hypothetical examples as well as summaries of relevant court cases.
