Uses and Abuses of Market Evidence of Business Value



Tuesday, May 19, 2015


Economists and corporate finance experts define the value of a business as the present value of expected future economic benefits generated through business operations. However, in litigation, courts are prone to trust market evidence of value. These two valuation approaches do not necessarily contradict each other. While the market abounds with evidence, the challenge is separating the pertinent from the misleading.

This webinar will provide the following:

  • An in-depth look at the market approach to valuing businesses, including the inherent subjectivity that could provide a basis for cross examining experts.
  • A better understanding of the "market evidence" built into discounted cash flow models.
  • A discussion of market evidence frequently relied upon by courts in resolving valuation disputes, including analysts reports, contemporaneous forecasts, market cap, publicly traded debt, derivative prices, and more.
