Take Action Now: Advocate Against Policies & Excessive Regulation

A webcast featuring Mark Lingerfield, ASA a Partner and Managing Director at MPI, hosted by Pat Soldano, President, Family Enterprise USA.

 

Valuation in Estate Planning Context: Mark Lingerfeldt, an expert on business valuation, discusses the IRS Chief Council’s advice memorandum (CCA) regarding valuing a minority block of stock in a private company in the context of estate planning, particularly when the company is in the process of being sold.

Consideration of Potential Sale in Valuation: The key issue explored is whether a hypothetical buyer would consider the potential or pending sale of the company when valuing their stock. The IRS is concerned about ensuring accurate valuation to prevent undervaluation for tax avoidance purposes.

Importance of Updated Appraisals and Documentation: Lingerfeldt highlights the pitfalls of using outdated appraisals and emphasizes the importance of considering the sale timeline and obtaining relevant documentation such as communication with investment bankers, financial projections, and letters of intent. Additionally, he touches on reconciling financial and strategic valuations, particularly in the context of mergers and acquisitions (M&A) transactions.
