If you did find the 3-day valuation seminar useful, I do have more work for you. In this page, I have links to spreadsheets containing all of the companies we valued during the sessions. Feel free to download them, examine them, change the inputs that you don't like and make them your own. I have also posted links to data that was updated during the session that you may want to use.
