Valuations and Transitions: The Impact of COVID-19

For those in the midst of a transition or those planning for a transition – whether buying or selling, the Covid-19 crisis is adding an additional layer of uncertainty and fear to an already emotional process.  

  • For sellers, questions of…..Can I still sell? Is my practice still worth what it was worth “before”?  Do I try to sell now or wait?
  • For buyers, questions of …. How do I look at a practice when the future is so unknown? When do I close?  Will the market be better later? How will I know it’s worth what they are asking?

NDP’s Charles Loretto and Christy Ratcliff will discuss the current, ever-evolving impact that Covid-19 is having on the transition market and what you can do now and potentially expect later.
