Why You Should Attend

Even casual observers of business valuation know the Butler Pinkerton Calculator™ (BPC) by reputation.  The source of much debate, confusion, and misinformation, the BPC is being subject to the growing pains and misunderstandings that many other business valuation tools have experienced over time.  Separating fact from fiction in the utilization of the BPC has become increasingly difficult given the tenor of recent debates.

In “The Butler Pinkerton Calculator: Come and See What All the Hoopla is About”, Peter Butler, one of the creators of the BPC, and valuation expert Gary Trugman will review the uses and applications of this powerful tool for determining total cost of equity for guideline public companies.  In this free one hour webinar, Butler and Trugman will separate fact from fiction to help you utilize the BPC to its greatest potential - and you’ll see what the all the hoopla is about.
