Join us for a seminar at the Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants (HKICPA), where Simon Tsang, Managing Director in the Valuation Services practice at Duff & Phelps, will share his experience through case studies on valuation in the new economy.
Schedule: 7:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. (HKT)
The fast growing unicorns and start-ups in new economy industries such as biotechnology, e-commerce, mobile application and medical technology have been under the spotlight in the Greater China financial capital markets in the last few years. Applying traditional valuation methodology to these new economy industries for various financial reporting purposes, including IPOs, mergers and acquisitions and fund raising, has always been a challenge. The seminar will discuss the following topics:
- Characteristics of new economy businesses and typical intangible assets involved.
- Why valuation of this type of business is so difficult?
- Common valuation approaches and available market reference
