Valuing a Business

  • What is This Company Worth?

What is your company worth?  Is business value the single most important metric?  This session discusses various business valuation methods for any stage company:  start-up, spin-off, or acquisition.  Many valuation methods exist.  Which method is right?  Which is the ‘best’ for a given business or a given situation?  CPAs and Corporate Financial Managers cannot afford to miss this course.
