During 2020; amid the COVID Pandemic and economic uncertainty, the stock market saw wild swings in the market. While these wild swings may not have an initial impact on the value of closely held businesses, it does offer some insight into investor sentiments that could affect the value of a closely held company. In this presentation we will look at the trends in stock market and multiples for closely held company transaction and discuss what drivers affect the multiples being paid.

Learning Objectives:
  • Identify comparisons between the stock market trends and the trends in multiples for closely held businesses.
  • Determine what factors drive multiples up and down and what businesses can do to maintain or increase value of their business
