Intangibles and Corporate Value
This program continues our two-part discussion about shifts in business and economics and how they affect our clients. In this Part 2 of the discussion, we’ll have a panel discussion about the rise of intangibles:
- The two trends that have led to the dominance of intangibles in business
- How intangibles influence valuation of companies in the lower middle market
- How intangibles can be harnessed to drive the growth and performance of our clients’ businesses
There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion.
