Lost Profits v. Lost Business
Training Event Transcripts
June 19, 2012
Edward M. McDonough, CPA, ABV, CIRA, CFF, MBA
Laureen M. Ryan, CPA/CFE/ABV
In claiming economic damages, a business may, depending on circumstances, seek to recover either the lost profits of the business or the lost value of the business itself but not both. And, as with many other valuation decisions, this choice will affect many other considerations, including the number and makeup of claimants and the valuation analysis performed.
Part 11 of BVR's Online Symposium on Litigation and Economic Damages features expert appraisers Edward McDonough and Laureen Ryan on the consequences of seeking lost profits or lost business damages. Attendees will learn how these two analysis assignments differ and what each path poses for the appraiser.
