Business Valuation Using Bayesian Networks

Business Valuation Using Bayesian Networks

Presented at the 9th Annual BayesiaLab Conference on October 15, 2021.


Given wide plausible value ranges, the greatest value that a business valuation expert offers a client may be the ability to persuade others (e.g., judges) to locate their preponderance of probabilities (evidence) across the client’s interval within the plausible value range. Accomplishing this feat is a function of technical valuation expertise, as well as communication tools and techniques. This presentation explores Bayesian networks as a platform for facilitating the probabilistic estimation, negotiation, and communication of business value.
