Purchase price allocation

Do you need help understanding how purchase accounting will impact earnings post-acquisition under ASC 805 (SFAS 141R) and other regulations? That’s the advantage of having the right valuation advisor involved early in the process. Increasingly complex accounting standards for reporting M&A transactions have introduced the potential for greater earnings volatility.

As financial reporting moves to a fair value model, understanding financial accounting and reporting requirements and how your decisions may impact future earnings is more important than ever. Integrated valuation and accounting advice will allow you to identify issues and understand alternatives so you can make better decisions.
