Jim Budyak, CPA/ABV, CFA, ASA, senior vice president of VRC’s Milwaukee office, authored an article featured in the February 2018 issue of Business Valuation Update. BVU has been the voice of valuation professionals and includes new thinking from leading professionals.

Budyak notes, “In a prior article, I discussed certain considerations in valuing a multinational company. Noted in that article is a useful due diligence framework, Company-Country-Currency-Sector.

GRP contributes to the story from a qualitative and quantitative perspective in terms of why an EBITDA or price-to-revenue multiple is selected for the subject entity being valued.”
