About This Program

Valuing distressed companies presents obstacles not encountered when valuing the normal operating company. The valuation analyst needs to identify and take these obstacles into account in performing a valuation of a distressed company. Even when that is done, however, there are uncertainties about the ultimate fate of the distressed company that are difficult to take into account. That is where the Monte Carlo simulation comes in. Join Jim Alerding, valuation expert with Alerding Consulting, LLC and Matt Bernstein, valuation expert and Monte Carlo simulation expert with Dixon Hughes Goodman, LLP as they discuss not only how to value a distressed company, but how to use the Monte Carlo simulation to further define the solutions to such a valuation to refine the valuation conclusion.


  • Outline of the specific issues regarding valuing a distressed company
  • The traditional method of valuing a distressed company
  • Inputs for the Monte Carlo simulation on a distressed company
  • Methodology for the Monte Carlo simulation on a distressed company
  • Demonstration of the Monte Carlo simulation on a distressed company
