The AICPA has released the final version of a new accounting and valuation guide, Valuation of Portfolio Company Investments of Venture Capital and Private Equity Funds and Other Investment Companies, which provides nonauthoritative guidance and illustrations regarding the accounting for and valuation of portfolio company investments investment companies hold within the scope of FASB ASC 946. This guide may also be useful for noninvestment companies, such as corporate venture capital groups or pension funds, that make similar investments. The guide was developed by the AICPA PE/VC Task Force, which includes members from the PE/VC industry, auditors, valuation practitioners, and AICPA staff, according to a news release.
