Valuation experts Ed Morris, Jim Alerding, and Brian Steen will cover the hands-on, must-know issues relating to recognizing, testing, and accounting for goodwill impairment. For all valuation practitioners, this presentation is an imperative preparation for the coming wave of impairment-related valuation issues. Indeed, Ed Morris notes "we've seen some increase in goodwill impairment for the 2008 financial statements, but we think that's going to continue—and if nothing else accelerate—in 2009, and get into some of the trickier issues where it's not as black and white as it has been."
