Why You Should Attend

In this exclusive webinar BVR welcomes author and valuation expert Ronald Seaman for an examination of the application of Long-Term Equity Anticipation Securities (LEAPS) in determining Discounts for Lack of Marketability (DLOM). Seaman's presentation in "LEAPS and the DLOM," coming hot on the heels of his just-published book of the same title, will address the knowledge and practices of applying LEAPS methodologies. This presentation will also review the results of the fourth LEAPS study, released in 2010 and will cover the DLOM in general, and where it may be headed in today's economy.


  • Introduction
  • About LEAPS and how to find the data you need
  • How to use LEAPS - a case study
  • What factors are most important in determining the DLOM
    • Are earnings more important than revenue size?
    • Are dividends more important than the debt/equity ratio?
  • About LEAPS on Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs)

Learning Objectives

  • Learn where to find and how to apply LEAPS data
  • Learn how LEAPS are applicable in DLOM determinations and which advantages they present in this analysis
  • Learn how LEAPS satisfy the desires of many courts for improved DLOM determination

Leaps and the DLOM

Authored by Ron Seaman, Leaps and the DLOM is an indispensible resource for every valuation practitioner. Ron has been studying the universe of Long-Term Equity Anticipation Securities (LEAPS) for five years to understand what they show about discounts for lack of marketability (DLOMs), which are key attributes in the valuation of closely-held shareholdings and other interests. Such discounts are frequently a significant reduction in the value of those holdings. Thus, courts and valuation practitioners are requiring better, market-based substantiation of the discounts. Leaps and the DLOM includes the 2010/11 Study and comparisons to earlier years, industry studies, and more LEAPS on Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs).
