Webinar: Why are early stage assets becoming more popular?
June 23, 2015
With increasingly buoyant public markets in the UK, we are seeing increased interest and deal activity for early stage investments.
Institutional investors are looking to early stage investments as a means of generating potential return in a low interest, high multiple environment. The last 12 months has seen a number of large, successful IPOs for early stage technology and pharmaceutical companies for example. Combined with the fact that the UK is a global hub location for technology businesses, the question of how to value these, often challenging, early stage assets is now more relevant than ever.
The ICAEW is hosting a free webcast on Tuesday 30 June at 12:30pm - Uncovering the mysteries of valuing early stage assets. Simon Harris and Stephen Aherne from PwC will be discussing:
- the challenges of valuing these assets;
- common valuation approaches and how they differ industry to industry; and
- what should a prudent investor be thinking about for early stage investment valuations.
The webcast will be live at 12.30pm (BST) on Tuesday 30 June 2015.
