Analyzing Intangibles – The Boardroom Perspective

Intangible assets are increasingly seen to be driving enterprise value creation across sectors and industries. Challenges and deficiencies in the public reporting frameworks underpinning these intangibles are well-rehearsed. However, at the boardroom level, these assets are evaluated either in the form of a valuation or by analyzing the output of the expensing. This webinar will explore the approach companies take to understand and evaluate intangibles and how they analyze the return on the cash outflows towards intangibles.

Valuation of Digital Assets

Digital assets, including non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and currency tokens, have proliferated in recent years. At the same time, new technologies, exchanges and digital ledgers are making these assets more accessible to investors and other entities. But how do we approach these from a valuation perspective? Our expert panel will discuss this growing asset class and consider the implications for valuers and valuations.

Valuation, Inflation and the Cost of Capital

Inflation has recently reached multi-decade highs in several countries and regions. Inflationary pressures are not limited to emerging markets, and many developed economies are struggling to keep inflation under control.

In this context, how is the current inflation environment impacting valuations and cost of capital assumptions? Do we need to reconsider long-term growth assumptions in the terminal year of discounted cash flow (DCF)-based valuations? What lessons can we draw from previous business cycles, and how might things be different this time around considering Russia’s war on Ukraine? What other adjustments need to be made to the valuation, and how relevant are these adjustments in hyperinflationary economies?

The Evolution of ESG in Valuation

Environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations are increasingly underpinning business and investment decisions as corporate entities and governments seek to meet their net-zero targets. One of the key barriers to unlocking ESG frameworks has been the challenge around measurement–how do we measure and attribute value to ESG components? This webinar will explore the findings of an IVSC-led study looking at the current status of ESG considerations within valuation and investment approaches.
