When do subsequent events count?
Abstract: Events that occur after the valuation date — such as key person losses, natural disasters or post-valuation transactions — complicate business appraisals. Fortunately, experienced business valuators understand how to navigate the treacherous waters of subsequent events. This brief article explains some considerations that may cause a valuator to factor a subsequent event into the analysis. Even though valuators generally disregard events that occur after the valuation date, numerous exceptions to this rule exist.
