Developed by Brian Pearson of Valuation Advisors, LLC (VAL), the Valuation Advisors Lack of Marketability Discount Study is the only online database of pre-IPO private stock and option transaction data. These market based transactions demonstrate the lack of marketability discount (also referred to as discount for lack of marketability or DLOM) afforded by the pre-IPO instruments because of their illiquidity when issued by a privately held company. This study is a Web-based tool and includes pre-IPO transactions from 1985 - present including transactions with timeframes great than 2 years. Learn why you should look at DLOMs beyond 2 years.
