Free webinar—'Getting Ready for SFAS 141R, Business Combinations'

BVWireIssue #70-3
July 16, 2008

In conjunction with Compliance Week magazine, Matthew R. Crow, ASA, CFA, and Travis W. Harms, CFA, CPA/ABV (both of Mercer Capital, Memphis, TN), will present a free webinar on July 31, 2008 (2:00 p.m. EDT) which will cover an overview of SFAS 141R and the resultant valuation implications.

SFAS 141R brings substantial changes to fair value accounting procedures in business transactions. As previously noted in the BVWire (#69-3, June 25 2008), a recent study by Deloitte found that SFAS 141R would cause 40% of those surveyed to "rethink" deal strategy and affect planned deal activity, while only 4% said their companies have already finished assessing the valuation impact of the new rule.
