  • Summary
  • Agenda
  • Presenters
Please join BDO Consulting for a complimentary breakfast seminar featuring continuing legal education. 

This session will cover three major areas of analysis under the income approach to business valuation:
  • Determination of the Income Stream
  • Adjustments to Determine the Cash Flow Stream
  • Determination of the Capitalization/Discount Rate
We will use case examples to detail different types of income statement adjustments made in situations where an owner is controlling or non-controlling, as well as those adjustments which relate to non-recurring events.  We will also discuss the determination of appropriate adjustments to income to determine cash flow available for distribution, and the determination of appropriate rates to translate the cash flow stream into value.  Additionally, we will discuss major errors often made in these calculations and potential cross examination points for opposing experts, utilizing case examples. 
8:00 AM to 8:30 AM – Registration
