The focus of this training is on understanding and applying the International Private Equity and Venture Capital Valuation Guidelines (Guidelines developed by IPEV Board). As for all the master classes of Invest Europe Training, the emphasis will be on practical examples, discussion of case studies and day-to-day challenges, with great attention to the specificities of both venture capital and buyout.
The following aspects will be covered: the development and content of the Valuation Guidelines, the International Private Equity and Venture Capital Valuation Board (IPEV), the concept of fair value, the selection of the appropriate valuation methodology for investment/negotiation purposes as well as the Investor Reporting Guidelines.
The workshop starts with a welcome lunch and lasts one and a half days. Only a limited number of participants will be accepted in order to encourage interaction.
