Hamilton to Lead Interactive Webinar on Earnouts

Princeton, NJ (February 25, 2020) – Ed Hamilton, CFA, Managing Director of Valuation Research Corporation (VRC), a leading provider of third-party valuation support and advisory services, will lead an interactive webinar “Learning the Language of Earnouts” on Tuesday, March 24.

The webinar is designed for financial reporting professionals who have an obligation to clearly communicate earnout values and valuation approaches to management, boards of directors, auditors, and other deal team members. Yet the language of contingent consideration (aka earnouts) can feel like a foreign tongue to an accounting professional already facing a long list of critical responsibilities. Hamilton will walk through an earnout valuation and share the tools and terminology to communicate with other stakeholders.

The webinar will cover:

  • What is an earnout and why it is used
  • Why and when differing valuation approaches are used
  • The math and logic behind the most common approaches including Black Scholes and Monte Carlo.

The one-hour webinar begins at 1 pm ET. Those who can’t attend the live webinar during its scheduled time should register anyway to receive a link to the recording.
