Product Details

Understand basic business valuation concepts and how these might relate to your own business.

The purpose of this webcast is to help participants understand basic concepts of business valuation, and how those concepts might relate to their own business.

Enhancing business value boils down to accentuating the positives (the value drivers) and minimizing the negatives (business risk). A robust valuation analysis helps the business owner not only understand what their business is worth, but also why it’s worth what it is.

The presentation will cover the typical characteristics that can enhance the value of a business as well as those that can detract from a company’s value. Once these characteristics are identified, business owners and advisers can strategically manage their business with the goal of enhancing value.

Who Will Benefit
  • Business owners and advisers who want to understand and recognize the characteristics that can enhance a company’s value
