For years, the valuation profession has debated the definition of a control premium, including its distinction from an acquisition premium. What began years ago as a relatively simple question—if there is a control premium, what should it be?—now includes analyzing such concepts as invested capital premiums and equity-based premiums, transaction synergies and strategic values, marketability, and levels of control. All are key points to keep in mind throughout the quantification of a control premium, and the thinking about these premiums is different now than it was a decade ago.

This briefing, based on a recent webinar with valuation experts Timothy J. Meinhart and Nate Novak (Willamette Management Associates) puts current and best thinking into one reference. It is all you need to ensure alignment with Control Premium thought leadership. The Briefing also covers the recently improved FactSet Mergerstat/BVR Control Premium Study, historically the most reliable, comprehensive transactional database, which now provides an invested capital premium as well as the corresponding implied minority discount.
