Valuation matters more than ever – valuing a company before you make a stock investment, valuing a franchise business for purchase, watching the recent booming of M&A with valuations getting back into the dangerous zone, etc. This talk will explore the arts and science sides of the valuation and will provide participants with a practical insight into business valuation. You will learn about various valuations tools, business valuation interpretation as well as the mechanics of the valuation process. We will also explore different career paths of valuation professionals.
