About This Program

Listing a business with well-researched comps and data-backed analysis gives confidence to both the advisor and business owner. In this special session, designed for business intermediaries and business brokers, learn how to use DealStats (formerly Pratt’s Stats) to identify and analyze comparable private business sales. DealStats has advanced search functionality and built-in analysis tools to take the pain out of doing market research. Join over 10,000 deal professionals who make up the BVR Contributor Network and get access to the largest database of private transactions in the world for no fee. Hear Lance Schmidt (president, National Business Appraisers) and Adam Manson (director of valuation data, Business Valuation Resources) provide a practical demonstration on how to use DealStats, and learn about the process of joining the BVR Contributor Network and contributing deal information.
