About Course

What is more robust than discounted cash flow analysis and more flexible than Black-Scholes Option Pricing Models? Here is another hint: Which valuation methodology enables the analyst to make assumptions about dilution, probabilities of success, and volatility? What model allows these assumptions to be easily changed over time?

The answer is Binomial Lattices.

This session provides a solid overview for applying Binomial Lattices, which are used for evaluating emerging technologies and early-stage private companies.

Key Issues Discussed:

  • Definitions of critical inputs such as strike price, time to maturity, vesting period, and appraised fair market value of equity
  • When to use European vs. American options in the model
  • Determining the risk-free rate
  • Why the log of the risk-free rate should be used in the model
  • How to handle probabilities associated with options
  • Constructing one- and multi-period binomial trees
  • How binomial lattices account for dilution
