In this webinar, The MFA Companies’ valuation practice leaders Gregg Hamilton-Piercy and Glen McElwee will lead a presentation and subsequent conversation regarding key business valuation topics for estate planning purposes in these unique times.  

They will provide a brief overview on business valuation in general, including valuation methodologies and “discounts” (control vs. marketability), and highlight some observations from the last few months of performing business valuation engagements during a pandemic.
