Business Valuations Post-COVID19 Webinar

Managing the impact of COVID-19 when advising on business value

You cannot complete a business valuation now without considering the impact of COVID-19

COVID-19 is a major global event. When it the pandemic hit in 2020, it created uncertainty and for valuation purposes, uncertainty increases volatility risk.

One year on, we have real COVID experience. Some businesses have suffered from COVID, others have boomed. However, from a valuation perspective, we need to understand the likely continuing effects. Have the changes been short term or are they systemic? And, how do you deal with this when valuing a business?
