Alta’s Carl Chrappa to Discuss Equipment Values in a Challenging Economy at Appraisers Conference

October 22, 2021

Carl C. Chrappa, senior managing director and asset management practice leader for The Alta Group, will lead off the Machinery & Technical Specialties track of the ASA International Appraisers Conference 9:30 a.m. Mon. Oct. 25 with a presentation on What’s Hot/What’s Not in Equipment Leasing and Finance.

“On the one hand we are tracking positive equipment trends as the economy grows and rebounds from the pandemic,” Chrappa said. “But unemployment, political turmoil, supply chain disruption, inflation and high oil prices are negatively affecting valuations and outlooks for certain types of equipment.”

He will review current market conditions, residual values, outlooks and ratings for 15 equipment types at the ASA International Appraisers Conference in Las Vegas. It’s an update of his What’s Hot/What’s Not reports for the Equipment Leasing and Finance Association, and will include an economic overview to add perspective.

Chrappa is a registered auctioneer, recognized expert witness, and nationally (A.S.A.) as well as internationally (M.R.I.C.S.) tested and accredited senior equipment appraiser with decades of experience.
