About This Program

Many valuation professionals struggle with applying option pricing models to estimate discounts for lack of marketability (DLOM). With multiple option pricing models including European put options, shout put options, look-back put options, Asian put options, forward-starting put options, and perpetual exchange options, there is complexity that cause many to steer clear of options for purposes of estimating DLOM. Josh Angell clearly and practically explains the theoretical basis for the option models, as well as explores the strengths, weaknesses, advantages, disadvantages, limitations, and arguments for and against using such models. He'll discuss applicable case law approving and/or disapproving option pricing models and provide guidance on methods for estimating key inputs, such as private company volatility, dividend yields, and the holding period. Attend this webinar and become more confident on how to use the option pricing models in your practice.
