    Event Synopsis:
    Earlier this year, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2017-04, Intangibles – Goodwill and Other (Topic 350): Simplifying the Test for Goodwill Impairment, which removes the second step from the goodwill impairment test. This ASU allows public companies and not-for-profit organizations to follow the one-step process that private companies have been permitted to use for several years.

    In our LIVE Webcast, a panel of thought leaders and valuation professionals assembled by The Knowledge Group will provide a detailed discussion on the impact of the ASU, as well as other important goodwill impairment issues.

    Topics to be covered include:
    -An overview of key changes associated with ASU 2017-04
    -Best practices and audit/SEC review considerations related to goodwill impairment testing – including applicable aspects of the Mandatory Performance Framework for the Certified in Entity and Intangible Valuations (CEIV) credential
    -Impairment case study and project examples
    -Comparisons of ASU/Topic 350 guidelines to Private Company Council (PCC) and International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) considerations
