Overview

In uncertain economic times, it is critical to accurately assess what a company is worth. These skills apply whether you are looking to merge with a competitor or assessing the value of your own organization.

Successful financial decision making requires a unique combination of strategic analysis, insight into market multiples, evaluation of financial models and negotiating skills.

This Webcast focuses on the valuation topics that can mean the difference between a great deal and a disaster.

Whether you are struggling with how to assess a forecast, determine a reasonable rate of return or identify the hidden value sitting on a balance sheet, this Webcast provides a process that can help you make sound, defendable financial decisions.

What You Will Learn

When properly applied, business valuation is a disciplined process that every executive can learn and employ. In this power-packed hour, we explore critical topics, including:
  • Relating strategies to believable forecasts
  • Calculating and estimating net cash flows that reflect true value
  • Applying discount rates properly so risks are accurately quantified
  • Identifying typical mistakes commonly made with valuation multiples
  • Converting value conclusions to successful pricing strategies

If the events of the past few weeks have increased your need for a firmer grip on valuation realities, this Webcast provides actionable information and insight.
