  • The foundations of valuation theory and its evolution to how it is applied today
  • Why the same business can have multiple values depending upon the purpose of the appraisal as well as the popular misconceptions that surround the concept of fair market value
  • Why EBITDA multiples are inaccurate reflections of value as well as the process by which a professional appraisal is accomplished
  • The three levers of value that, if applied consistently, will increase the value of your enterprise
  • Current thinking on how to handle the effects of COVID, PPP programs and resilience in the valuation analysis that highlights the true long-term value of the business.
