Bankruptcy Valuation Issues: Valuation in the Context of a Fraudulent Transfer or Preference Attack
Series: VALUATION FIGHTS IN LITIGATION: BATTLE OF THE EXPERT
Bankruptcy trustees, debtors, liquidating trusts, and others often file claims against former shareholders/executives for alleged fraudulent transfers. A key issue relates to the value of the debtor’s assets at the time of the transfer relative to its liabilities and claims against its assets – in short, whether the debtor was solvent and/or adequately capitalized at the time of the transfer. There are several tests that financial analysts use to determine solvency and adequate capitalization of a business. This webinar describes those tests and helps attorneys understand how experts determine retrospective asset values and solvency. It will describe the methods used to determine the solvency of a business when issuing contemporaneous opinions and how they may differ when called upon to opine on the retrospective solvency of an entity that has filed for protection under the Bankruptcy Code.
