Chief financial officers (CFOs) face many complex issues when it comes to mergers and acquisitions, particularly in a down economy. This is first of a three-part podcast series addressing some of those challenges.


  • What is it about a recession that makes valuation different from any other times?
  • Are the normal methods of valuation still viable?
  • Are there any risks that a buyer and seller encounter in factoring in the adjustments to valuation methods?
  • How can risks be mitigated?
