Title:

The Balancing Act Of Valuing Startup Companies

SKU:WC-1023219
Date / Time: Recorded
Format: Webinar
Order:Qty:
Description:

Startup companies must determine company value for various business reasons and at various stages throughout their development. Startup company founders and their advisors must determine company value in deciding how to divide equity among them, their advisors and their employees.

In addition, startup companies often obtain formal valuation appraisals to comply with tax compliance requirements, meet tax authority safe harbor provisions and protect the companies and their employees from various compliance and litigation hazards. In any event, the fundamental principles and concepts at work are the same.

After attending this webinar, you will be able to: define the six levels of development for startup businesses; discuss the various stages of development for startup businesses and some of the valuation, legal and accounting issues that arise; identify the valuation approaches appropriate for the stage of development; advise company stakeholders to prepare accordingly for common valuation and legal issues that are likely to affect a startup company in the future; and explain how proper valuation planning can contribute to the growth of a business and protect its stakeholders from making avoidable and costly mistakes that could impair the business in the future.

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
