Guide Brings Consensus View from Three BV Leaders
Q&A Guide for Valuation Practitioners
James Hitchner, Dr. Shannon Pratt, and Jay Fishman are co-authors of a publication that uses a Q&A approach to address important questions. The article includes excerpts from this book.
The new year brings an important new resource to valuation and litigation professionals: A Consensus View Q&A Guide to Financial Valuation. Â Written by Jim Hitchner, Shannon Pratt, and Jay Fishman, this 350+ page Guide answers the most common questions these three analysts have been asked in their combined 150+ years of experience in the profession.
One of the bookâ€™s 13 reviewers is Scott Saltzman, managing member of Saltzman, LLC and president of NACVA. Â â€śThe Q&A Guide addresses a number of key areas in the valuation process that will no doubt assist the reader in that valuation process,â€ť says Saltzman. Â â€śThis book is unique in that it does not attempt to cover everything in valuation, but it discusses key areas of valuations in greater detail, which brings great clarity to the subjects. Â I highly recommend this book for individuals who want a better or more in-depth understanding of the valuation process and methodology.â€ť Â A Consensus View Q&A Guide to Financial Valuation Selected ExcerptsÂ (PDF)
