Forensic and Valuation Services (FVS)

Sep 2, 2021

Guests: Josh Shilts, CPA/ABV/CFF/CGMA and Melissa Davis, CPA

The impact of the COVID pandemic on businesses and bankruptcy did not play out as many had anticipated.  The support from the government through the CARES act and PPP loans appears to be helping individuals and businesses stay out of bankruptcy, but there is uncertainty around how long this will last.

Josh and guest Melissa Davis, CPA discuss:

  • Low interest rates and government assistance appear to be holding off bankruptcy filings for now
  • The economic uncertainty should be impacting company valuations going forward
  • Knowledge of the client’s industry, business, and economic help professionals prepare supportable valuations when helping a client navigate Chapter 11.

The podcast will also discuss some important strategies such as:

  • Liquidation analysis considerations
  • Potential clients and related services that practitioners may assist and provide during bankruptcy proceedings
  • Practice management considerations to assess before taking on this type of work
