Valuing a Business

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.
