Abstract Horizon

Different characteristics of approaches to business valuation: Global, German and Austrian Valuation Practice

EVI Valuation Seminar

16 January 2024

Seminar Outline
Who is the seminar for?

Established valuation practice often varies depending on local regulation. In the European context, valuation practices in German-speaking countries are particularly specific. Therefore, we offer the opportunity to meet valuation experts from Germany and Austria and discuss with them any topic you deal with in your practice. The seminar will also offer an opportunity to share and exchange views on current issues and practical experiences in the field of European valuation practice.

The seminar will cover the following areas:

  • Differences in global valuation practice and valuation practice in Germany or Austria

  • The issue of local valuation standards

  • Objectified vs. market value

  • Discussion of practical examples

The seminar is mainly intended for:

  • valuation practitioners,

  • lawyers and in-house counsels and

  • government representatives.

The seminar will be held in English.

The seminar will be held on January 16, 2024 (9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.) at the Institute of Economic Studies, Opletalova 26, Prague 1.
