PORTLAND, Ore., April 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The legal marijuana industry is riding a business high. Business Valuation Resources (BVR) is excited to announce the release of a new special report, "Marijuana Dispensaries: A Budding Industry Brings Opportunities and Challenges for Business Appraisers," that covers the technical insight that business appraisers need when valuing or servicing a marijuana dispensary.
With several market research firms forecasting significant growth for the next several years, marijuana dispensaries are a budding business. And, as with other businesses, there is real money to fight over when the owners divorce a spouse, there is a dispute on a partnership agreement, gift shares come into play, or the owner sells the enterprise. Performing an accurate valuation of a marijuana dispensary is a particularly challenging and unique assignment.
"The industry's relatively short history, high level of risk, high volatility, and complex, quickly evolving regulatory structure are unique considerations to which appraisers must pay attention," said Sarah Andersen, publisher at BVR. "With insight from financial experts including Jim Marty and Ron Seigneur, this new special report addresses the important issues that business appraisers need to know."
Highlights of the special report include:
Ethics in the marijuana industry
Unique considerations for valuing a marijuana dispensary
Best practices for a medical marijuana business's books and records
Four key legal issues that increase marijuana dispensary value
What drives investments in marijuana dispensaries
