About This Program

According to the FDIC, 94 percent or 4,800 of all U.S. commercial banks are “community banks.” Community banks are closely held, have shareholders’ equity ranging from $5 million to $100 million, and have approximately 150 employees, on average. Due to unique regulatory and operating factors, valuation of a commercial bank requires industry-specific insights and knowledge. Join expert Keith Sellers for insight into all aspects of the valuation of U.S. commercial banks, focusing on “community banks. Day one focuses on establishing a solid foundation by reviewing operations, data sources and financials of community banks. Day two is an in depth case study (data provided) applying those fundamentals and gaining valuable experience. Attend both days to get the full value.

Note:While it is designed for participants to attend both sessions you may register and attend the Fundamentals and the Case Study separately.

  • Valuation Using the Income Approach: Options for benefit stream and cost of capital. How to use Duff & Phelps model to estimate industry-specific cost of equity
