||Valuing stock-based compensation ("cheap stock") has been a significant challenge for private companies. This new Accounting and Valuation Guide has been designed to mitigate those challenges. It brings you practical guidance and illustrations related to accounting, disclosures, and valuation of privately-held-company equity securities issued as compensation.
This guide includes the following:
The guide also discusses the relevance of FASB ASC 820 (FASB Statement No. 157) to cheap stock issues and includes updated guidance and illustrations regarding the valuation of, and disclosures related to, privately-held-company equity securities issued as compensation. This guide also provides expanded and more robust valuation material to reflect advances in the theory and practice of valuation since 2004.
- Evaluating private and secondary market transactions. What should companies do when transaction activity doesn't match their estimates of value?
- Adjustments for control and marketability. How should companies think about the value of the enterprise for the purpose of valuing minority securities? When is it appropriate to apply a discount for lack of marketability, and how should the estimated discount be supported?
- Highly leveraged entities. How should companies incorporate the fair value of debt in the valuation of equity securities? What is the impact of leverage on the expected volatility of various securities?
This edition includes guidance from FASB ASC 718, 505-50, 820-10 and SSVS No. 1, which were all issued since the last AICPA guidance dedicated to this issue.
