Raymond Rath, Managing Director at Globalview Advisors, will author a chapter titled “Valuing Intangible Assets,” in the upcoming 6th Edition of Valuing a Business: The Analysis and Appraisal of Closely Held Companies.

The first edition of Valuing a Business was published in 1981. The 5th Edition was published in 2008. Valuing a Business has provided professionals and students with expert business valuation information in a clear and concise manner. Many valuation professionals view it the definitive text in the field. Attorneys involved in valuation matters also use Valuing a Business as an important resource.

Besides valuation theory and applications for business and security valuations, Valuing a Business covers numerous topics impacting business appraisers and business valuations ranging from executive compensation and lost profits analysis to ESOP valuation issues and valuation discounts.

Written by Shannon Pratt, Ph.D., one of the world’s leading authorities on business valuation, and Alina Niculita (collaborator), Valuing a Business offers a complete “one-stop” compendium of information on the full range of valuation concepts and methods. This landmark reference also presents numerous recent and seminal court cases for different valuation areas, which provide a deep understanding of legal rulings and trends in the field of business valuation.

The 6th Edition will be updated by the American Society of Appraisers (“ASA”) and published by The McGraw-Hill Corporation. The ASA has selected a variety of business valuation leaders with recognized credentials to update existing chapters of the 5th Edition, or in the case of the intangibles chapter, develop entirely new content.
