BV187 Rollover Equity: Common Valuation Issues

Webinar Description

Rollover equity is a common component of purchase consideration in many private equity transactions. This transaction feature arises when stockholders of an acquisition target receive equity in the new capital structure of the post-transaction company in lieu of cash. ASC 805-30-30-7 requires that consideration transferred in a business combination be measured at fair value. It may be necessary in some cases to determine the fair value of rollover equity to establish the allocable purchase price under ASC 805. Identifying when this is necessary, and the appropriate techniques and issues, depends on various factors specific to the transaction structure and features of the rollover security. The webinar will provide an in-depth review of common rollover equity valuation issues, with a focus on applicability to purchase price allocation engagements under ASC 805.

Webinar Audience

Valuation practitioners involved in performing purchase price allocation analyses under ASC 805
