BlueVal Group to Participate in BVR Webinar on Valuation of Technology Companies

BlueVal Group, a provider of business valuation services with a specialty in the valuation of privately-held companies and intangible assets, will present as part of a Business Valuation Resources (BVR) webinar, “Valuation of Technology Companies: A Fair Value Update”. BlueVal Group’s Andreas Dal Santo, Antonella Puca, and Adam Kindreich will be part of the webinar, which runs from 1:00 p.m. to 2:40 p.m. ET on Thursday, May 16, 2019. Attendees who participate in the webinar may be eligible to earn two CPE credits. More details and registration are available here.

Andreas, Antonella, and Adam will provide an update on the guidance to fair value measurement under ASC 820 as applicable to the Valuation of Software Companies, based on the guidance in the AICPA Guide on the Valuation of Portfolio Investments of Venture Capital and Private Equity Funds and Other Investment Companies and other best practices. We will show practical examples of how to set up a calibration model at the transaction date and how to apply the calibration model to subsequent measurement periods based on Case 10 of the AICPA working draft “Early Stage Software as a Service Startup with Binary Expected Outcomes”. We will then blend traditional valuation techniques such as DCF analysis with non-GAAP metrics in the valuation of Uber, an innovative company that is disrupting the transportation and automotive industry.
