Greene Valuation’s founder and principal, Martin Greene, is slated to present a talk at the upcoming 20th Annual Business Valuation Conference, produced by the Foundation for Accounting Education.

The event will be held May 21, 2018, at the FAE Learning Center, 14 Wall Street, 19th Floor, in New York.

Greene’s presentation, “Non-controlling Interests in Real Estate Holding Companies—What Tax Court Has Been Telling Us,” will focus on the chronology of valuation methods used by U.S. Tax Court over the last 40 years for non-controlling, nonmarketable interests in operating real estate holding companies.

He will discuss the misconceptions that many users—even valuators—may have when determining the fair market value of interests in these entities, some of which include applying net asset value methods. He’ll examine the limitations of and differences between the real estate appraiser’s value of the underlying property and the FMV of non-controlling interests in entities holding these properties.

Additionally, his program will explore applying REITs and other market data from publicly traded real estate entities. Finally, there will be a discussion of issues commonly seen in the northeast and their impact on our valuation conclusions.

Greene will present at 4:10 p.m.

The conference’s keynote speaker is James R. Hitchner, CPA/ABV/CFF, ASA, managing director, Financial Valuation Advisors; president, Financial Consulting Group; and CEO of Valuation Products and Services. He will present highlights from his seven-part webinar series, “Best Practices: Business Valuation Methods,” covering topics such as discounted cash flow method, capitalized cash flow method, S corps and more.
