The M&A Standards which became effective in 2009 dramatically changed the way companies negotiate and account for mergers and acquisitions. This publication is the first in a series of such publications that will help you keep abreast of emerging issues resulting from the standards, as well as provide you with new ideas on modifying current strategies and employing new ones for future deals.
This first edition of Mergers & acquisitions — a snapshot focuses on how the accounting treatment for M&A transactions differs under the previous guidance and the M&A Standards.
*This snapshot, updated since its original issuance to reflect changes for, among other things, contacts and branding, contains guidance that remains relevant as of the publication date.
