Time:  11:45 a.m. to 1:15 p.m.

Where:  The Old Spaghetti Factory - Riverside

Speaker:  William W. Thomsen,

Topic:  Detecting a "Rigged" Goodwill Valuation

The Problem:  You are digging through a thick goodwill loss valuation report.  Its conclusion is far higher (or lower) than your own expert’s, or what you would expect to be reasonable.  You feel it must be “rigged” somehow.  But how?  Where?

The Solution:  This presentation will provide information to help navigate these complex waters.  At the end of the presentation, you should have better insight on what to look for and what to ask when reviewing a goodwill valuation report.

Who Should Attend?  Attorneys, right of way professionals, agency representatives, appraisers, advisors, or business owners who deal with business valuations may find this session useful.

William W. Thomsen, CFA, ASA, has over 25 years’ experience performing valuations of businesses ranging from small family-owned enterprises to Fortune 1000 companies, and across numerous industries.  He also provides economic damage assessment and testimony for commercial litigation.

Will’s valuations are used for estate tax planning, transaction due diligence, financial restructuring, and civil litigation such as shareholder disputes and eminent domain.  He has testified to goodwill valuation for eminent domain proceedings for over 25 years on behalf of both public agencies and private business owners.

Will holds the Accredited Senior Appraiser (ASA) designation and is also a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA). He holds a Master of Business Administration in Finance from Columbia University and a Bachelor of Arts in Economics from Pomona College.
