CPAR - 2020/September, Seg. 2 - How COVID-19 Is Changing the Valuation Profession

Valuation professionals are accustomed to uncertainty, market volatility, natural disasters, and unexpected declines in economic conditions, but COVID-19 is unlike anything they’ve experienced. It makes it impossible to predict the impact it will have on businesses. Looking at EBITDA, any adjustments made to the revenue valuation multipliers would be subjective, and being subjective, are not something any valuation professional would like to be “accused” of. Brian Sarkis, CFA, founder of The Franklin Nova Group, has been in the valuation arena for a couple of decades. He discusses the types of issues he is currently helping his clients navigate through.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the current trends and the issues companies are focusing on,
  • Recognize the main areas where robust disclosures should be considered,
  • Determine some of the triggering events that can occur and assess their impact, and
  • Identify what regulators and auditors are looking for when it comes to asset impairment.
