Today, Kevin Rusch presented "Repurchase Obligation Studies: How to Avoid Garbage In/Garbage Out" at the New South spring event today. The key to a successful Repurchase Obligation Study is the assumptions that are used. Assumptions regarding company value, future contributions/dividends rates, employee turnover rates, distribution policy provisions all play a key role in projecting future obligations. In this session, Kevin and co-presenter, Kelley Finnell of Executive Financial Services, discussed the selection of reasonable assumptions and considered how the three distribution methods (Recycling, Redeeming, and Releveraging) can be used to manage a company’s future repurchase cash flow obligations. The presentation included case studies, planning tips, and audience participation.
