Presentation Summary 

Topic: Why do business valuation experts disagree? 

In disputes, valuation experts on opposing sides can substantially disagree on the value of the same business. The big disparity in values is often due to a disagreement in the assumptions made. 

In this presentation, we look at five matters where the valuation experts disagreed on value, why they disagreed, and the judgment made. 

Matters include the valuation of closely held private businesses in family court cases to the Dell dissenting shareholder dispute where the experts disagreed by $28 billion! 

We explore the five key technical areas the experts disagreed and explain why disagreements arise in these technical areas.
