Overview

Eric Madsen is a Managing Director in BRG’s Downtown Los Angeles office. He is a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) charterholder and a Certified Public Accountant (CPA), licensed in California, and holds a BS in economics and an MBA.

Mr. Madsen has submitted expert reports and prepared related analyses for matters in US District Court, the Superior Court of the State of California, the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID), and mediation. He performs financial analyses and values companies—both public and private, and domestic and international—and other complex assets. These valuations arise from, for example, disputes over alleged omissions and misrepresentations in business acquisitions, partnership buyouts, and consideration paid for minority stakes in short-form mergers and other shareholder squeeze outs.

Mr. Madsen’s financial analyses involve various issues. For example, in one matter, he demonstrated how considering a company’s substantial brand value affected its accounting-based profitability measures, such as return on book value of equity. In another matter, he critiqued the use of an options pricing model for measuring lost value from an alleged delay in the closing of a merger. For other cases, he has analyzed the effects of misinformation on company stock prices. He regularly assesses the financial health of companies and draws conclusions based on their financial information.

In addition to his financial analyses and valuation work, Mr. Madsen has analyzed economic damages in numerous matters involving breach of contract, securities fraud, labor-and-employment issues, antitrust disputes, accounting irregularities, and patent and trademark infringement. His work has spanned a broad range of industries, including technology, online commerce, energy, transportation, agriculture, manufacturing, and entertainment.
