    6/24/2015 · Economics
    Examining actual transactions in the private capital markets and court outcomes figure into whether holding a large block of stock equates with it control or even a premium. The internal and external factors, legal provisions, and property performance drive this result.

    This article establishes there is recognition by the IRS and the courts that a well-supported proof of impairment based on the sale of a large number of shares necessitates an investor concession. It provides the rationale and methodology to capture the existence and the level of impairment.

    In this article, Dr. Carl Sheeler, responds to a September 9, 2013 concept paper authored by Rick Baumgardner, Chair of the Appraisal Practices Board of the Appraisal Foundation, titled “Valuation Issues in Separating Tangible and Intangible Assets.”

    Valuation professionals are uniquely positioned to help clients identify opportunities and third parties that can take them to a proverbial next level. Business valuation is about more than just benchmarking and deriving a defensible conclusion of value, it should entail understanding the value and interplay of governance, risk, relationships, and knowledge.

    This article addresses what is often omitted from most asset holding entity valuation reports. By failing to include issues like the ones outlined, the resulting adjustments are less empirical and more a "guesstimate". Valuation practitioners and their advisory clients have a duty to the users of our reports to accurately address equity level risks

    Think like an investor, not an accountant! If fair market value is to determine investor expectations and equity risk; then why do these factors receive limited or no consideration when opining on the level of impairments (investor concessions) ubiquitously referred to ask discounts? This article addresses the business risks associated with asset-holding companies' equity that should be considered and reported when preparing a valuation report.

    Knowing the value of a business and delivering real value to a client company entails far more than using EBITDA multiples or going along with a rule of thumb to keep the peace. As professionals, valuators must be far more rigorous in their engagements, and focus on delivering value. The obligation to identify, measure, manage, and mitigate the risks are their responsibility. In this candid analysis, Dr. Carl Sheeler shares some insights, based on his 1,000+ engagements, where he has found problems that led to disputes, misalignment of expectations, and company-specific risks that impair value and value creation.

    The thoughts below explore existing business valuation (BV) practices. The discussion may cover issues that are unfamiliar to BV analysts whose clients have businesses of below $5 million in revenues, or for those who deal primarily with midmarket clients of $50 million in revenues and above. First, it is necessary to acknowledge the many BV thought-leaders who have propelled our current body of knowledge forward. These valuation heroes have assisted countless practitioners and clients. In the absence of the development of best practices, those wishing to make a buck off of the market's ignorance would abound. Also, special thanks to the theoreticians who embrace the ethereal aspects of our industry with application of concepts such as regression analysis.

    Carl Sheeler, PhD
    This book provides the information and tools practitioners and business owners need to work with the multitude of intangibles - Governance, Risk, Relationships & Knowledge ("GRRK") - in equity investment decisions. The author engages readers with an insightful and brief claim: "Values are more than numbers." He then provides support for just how important human capital is to the value creation paradox.

    In the securities brokerage industry, "selling-away" refers to the prohibited practice of an Associated Person effecting or soliciting the sale of securities or investment products not held or approved with whom the broker is affiliated without prior written consent. FINRA regulators have seen a steady flow of selling-away cases over the years involving registered representatives who are being targeted by issuers, promoters and marketing agents to sell their nontraditional investment products to their retail customers. In many instances, promoters of these products are marketing them as non-securities products that do not have to be sold through a broker-dealer by a registered person. In a significant number of cases, associated persons have sold these investments to their customers away from the broker-dealer and without firm approval as required by FINRA Rule 3270. Selling-away often occurs in an independent branch or a satellite office, where Associated Persons are removed from the day-to-day oversight and supervision of their brokerage firm's compliance department.

    I receive phone calls throughout the year from attorneys who have taken on their first FINRA case and they frequently are unaware how the FINRA Dispute Resolution process differs from other venues. I thought it would be helpful to provide a quick overview for new participants and a refresher for those more experienced securities attorneys on how the FINRA Arbitration and Mediation process works.

    8/26/2015 · Finance
    In FINRA-related cases many attorneys see discovery requests objected to by opposing counsel. Typically, opposing counsel objects to discovery requests citing that items requested are either "overly broad, vague, or ambiguous", or "impermissible per FINRA's Code of Arbitration Procedure". However, despite opposing counsel's reasoning, many objections to discovery requests are irrelevant and do not hold up in regard to FINRA's Code of Arbitration Procedure. Attorneys should not be intimidated or discouraged by these objections, but rather should understand that FINRA's guidelines concerning arbitration allow for most applicable and reasonably obtainable discovery information to be delivered.

    Lee Tabas is available as an expert witness in banking and business litigation matters. In 30 years of banking, finance and life, he has experienced the variety of financial institution lawsuits. He has testified many times in court, and is able to communicate and explain banking procedures and Concepts in simple terms. Here are three reasons that you might consider using Lee Tabas as an expert in your legal matter.

    • People pay attention to what expert Witnesses and Lee Tabas in particular has to say. Testimony from an expert witness almost always helps represent the fact in an accurate, clear way that those present or reading the transcript will understand.Lee Tabas speaks deliberately and does not often mis-speak when challenged by opposing counsel. His expert witness testimony is convincing and persuasive and generally gets through to the judge, mediator, or jury.

    • Lee Tabas as an expert witness can and does prompt settlements. If the ultimate goal of legal proceedings is to achieve a fair and reasonable settlement rather than drag the case through years of litigation and complicated court proceedings, then it is probably worth consulting with an expert witness. Often, the knowledge that an expert professional will be testifying in court is enough to convince the other party to settle the case.

    • Expert Witnesses help either side of the case.The common perception is that only defense legal teams choose to work with expert witness testimony. This is a misconception. Both defense and plaintiff legal teams should be aware of the benefits of an expert is able to provide. An expert professional can make the facts speak more clearly which is a strong argument for using Lee Tabas as an expert witness.
