Raymond Rath, ASA, CEIV, CFA, participated as a panelist on a webinar organized by Business Valuation Resources entitled “Power Panel: Live Expert Answers for Today’s Tough BV Questions,” on April 6, 2021.

Mr.  Rath provided an update on recent developments impacting valuations for financial reporting. He also noted recent developments at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, Public Company Accounting Oversight Board and Financial Accounting Standards Board. Mr. Rath also discussed valuation and other areas of importance pertaining to Special Purpose Acquisition Companies (SPACs). SPACs are an area receiving increasing scrutiny and public comment by the SEC. Other topics discussed included Non-Fungible Token (“NFT”) values observed recently in the marketplace. Mr. Rath noted it is difficult to reach any meaningful valuation insights on NFT values given the newness of this market and the very limited number of transactions. The panel also discussed the status of the Certified in Entity and Intangible Valuations (“CEIV”®) designation and program. Mr. Rath and the other panelists also answered audience questions.

The Power Panel was moderated by Jay Fishman, Managing Director, Financial Research Advisors. Other panelists included Neil Beaton, Managing Director, Alvarez & Marsal and Stacey Collins, Managing Director, Financial Research Advisors. The webinar had an international audience of over 200 viewers.
