VALCON 2015: Emerging Valuation Issues in Bankruptcy and Beyond

Las Vegas, Nevada
25 February 2015 - 27 February 2015
Hosted By: the American Bankruptcy Institute (ABI)

VALCON is an annual event that brings together leading professionals and dealmakers in the distressed debt, restructuring, and valuation industry. On day two of this year's conference, NERA Senior Vice President Dr. Faten Sabry joined a panel of experts to discuss valuation issues in bankruptcy cases. Valuation disputes often become mini-battles of the experts, the reasonableness of their assumptions, and their relative credibility. Disputes usually center around those items where the expert has made subjective adjustments based on professional judgment, and even small adjustments can lead to substantial differences in value. This panel explored those issues that are most often "adjusted" based on professional judgment, including normalizing EBITDA, methodology weighting, treatment of excess cash, control premiums, minority discounts, liquidity discounts, and contingent assets and liabilities.

NERA also sponsored a cocktail reception at the event on the evening of 26 February.
