Virtually every transaction of a closely held company requires a valuation. The company may be selling itself or some of its assets; obtaining a loan or placing equity with new investor; or the valuation may be needed for trust and estate planning. But valuing a closely held company is much art as science because there is no regular and liquid market matching buyers and sellers. This can make valuation highly contentious as parties argue over add-backs, discounts and premiums, and how to “price” cash flow or earnings. And all the familiar calculations have been altered by recent tax law changes. This program will provide you a real-world guide to valuation methodologies, areas of common dispute, and drafting tips.
