Subject 10. Cross-Border Valuation PDF Download
It's difficult to value companies using comparables in an international setting. Comparing companies across borders frequently involves accounting method differences, cultural differences, economic differences, and resulting differences in risk and growth opportunities.

For example, earnings and other income-based values will be the ones most affected by differences in accounting standards. There is not much difference in treatment of cash flow or revenues between GAAP and IAS. Consequently, the difference in accounting standards will affect P/E and P/B multiples more significantly than P/FCFE or P/CF.

I passed! I did not get a chance to tell you before the exam - but your site was excellent. I will definitely take it next year for Level II.
