Karolina Calhoun, CPA/ABV/CFF, vice president, is speaking at the Georgia Society of CPAs virtual GSCPA Decision Makers Conference on Thursday, April 22, 2021. The Decision Makers conference presents critical issues that corporate finance professionals undertake to enhance their individual career development and benefit their company.
Karolina’s topic is “Cautionary Tales of Valuation Adjustments and Potential Forensic Implications in Litigation.” Valuations of a closely held business in the context of litigation can be multifaceted and may require additional forensic investigative scrutiny. As such, it is essential to consider the potential forensic implications of valuation adjustments as they may lead to other analyses. From this session, participants will learn how to evaluate financial statement adjustments and corresponding implications and interpret forensic services’ needs because of valuation adjustments, such as tracing services, income determination, and other analyses.
Karolina provides valuation and forensics services for family law, gift & estate planning, commercial litigation, transactions (M&A), and further matters related to privately held businesses, dissenting shareholders, intellectual property, personal goodwill, etc. With her forensics accreditation, she provides economic and financial damages studies, asset tracing, lost profits, and lifestyle analyses.
