Business valuation webinar

Evaluating opportunity for business valuations and transactions during COVID-19

Time to transition or sell?

COVID-19 has wreaked havoc on businesses. But rather than sit on the sidelines and watch, now may be the right time to get in the game to sell or transition a business. We will cover the impact of COVID-19 on the valuation process. Whether such values are depressed or inflated, there may be estate planning or transaction opportunities to take advantage of now before values rebound or changes occur with the approaching election cycle.

What you'll learn

  • Identify the impact of COVID-19 on business valuations;
  • Understand how COVID-19 has affected the business transaction market; and
  • Strategies to mitigate related challenges and exploit opportunities.

Who should watch

  • Business owners, especially those interested in estate planning, gifting or otherwise transitioning ownership internally to family and/or management.
