Why Should You Attend?
SFAS 157 and related statements are under attack, and solid principals of business valuation appear to have been forgotten by many parties.   Appraisers, auditors, CFO’s, lawyers, and others who must make sense of the changing rules are faced with new challenges in complying with multiple financial reporting standards meant for their clients. You’re shouldering more responsibility for your clients’ compliance—whether you want to or not.

This 2nd Annual Summit on Fair Value in Financial Reporting, developed by Business Valuation Resources, is the one place you can meet with leaders from FASB, the SEC, PCABO, the Big Four, the IRS, and professional leaders to hear directly from all of them what your responsibilities, risks, and opportunities truly are.   If you’re doing valuations for financial reporting, you can not afford to miss this program.

Our conference faculty includes some of the top minds in the profession. They will share with you everything they know so that you can protect yourself, your firm, and your conclusions of value.   And, you’ll get up-to-the-minute word on the new provisions, delayed implementations, and legal challenges to valuation standards as the global economy—and U.S. regulators—adapt to daily market, political forces, and valuation standards.

Highlights of the 2nd Annual Summit include:

  • The only joint Q&A of senior valuation partners from each of the Big Four—moderated by Mike Mard
  • Aswath Damodaran on “Fair Value Accounting:  Visionary Thinking or Oxymoron?”
  • Neil Beaton on 409a/123R “cheap stock” valuation issues
  • A report directly from Peter Wollmeringer and members of the Appraisal Foundation’s working group on valuing customer relations
  • The first-ever “Mock Audit” that offers a step-by-step insider’s view to the battle between CFOs, the auditors, and the business appraiser
  • Keynote focus sessions on estimating customer retention rates, valuing illiquid securities (with Cindy Ma), valuing contingent liabilities (with Lynne Weber) and 142/144 impairment testing issues
  • The only joint panel with representatives from the SEC, FASB, and PCAOB
  • The opportunity to talk to the best in the business on SFAS 157 and all the related financial reporting standards—while earning 12 CPE credits (or 16, if you sign up for either of the add-on sessions below)
  • Special Feature:   Two Add-on Sessions to cover the essentials:  
    Tuesday, February 3rd (1-5 PM - Earn 4 additional CPE credits)
