Valuation Research Corporation (VRC), a leading global provider of independent valuation support and advisory services, announced that co-CEO and Senior Managing Director PJ Patel will present an American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) webcast. The webcast, titled “Fair Value Measurements in an Era of Uncertainty,” will take place on Thursday, October 22.
Patel and co-presenters will discuss how the global business landscape has shifted due to the pandemic and has impacted how valuations are performed including the macro and micro considerations that go into them. Changes to expected cash flow, cost of capital, control and market premiums, and impairment analyses are just a few examples where this new environment has affected these inputs compared to historical trends. The audience will learn how COVID-19 may impact their own valuation engagements and discover how the expert panel of speakers has incorporated changes to their practices to meet the needs of their clients.
The webcast will take place from 12 p.m. to 1:40 p.m. CDT. More information about the webcast and registration can be found here.
