Valuation Research Group (VRG), a leading global provider of independent valuation, advisory and value-related services is pleased to announce that VRG’s Australia-based member firm partner, Dave Pearson, presented an International Institute of Business Valuers (iiBV) webinar, “Impacts of COVID19 on Business Valuations – Perspectives from Around the Globe.”

The iiBV, in collaboration with the International Valuation Standards Council (IVSC), Singapore Accountancy Commission (SAC), Duff & Phelps, and Leadenhall, provides insights on the pandemic and its ramifications for the global business valuation community. The webinar discusses the answers to questions such as:

  • Asset impairment – how do we determine if the decline in value is temporary?
  • Cost of capital in a volatile market – are the lessons of 2008 and 2009 applicable?
  • What are the dates after which we much consider the impact of a global pandemic?
  • Uncertainty in cash flow projections – how to build uncertainty into business models.

The recorded webinar is available at iiBV’s Impact of COVID19 – Global Perspectives.
