Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Valuation for Financial Reporting provides guidance and insight to practitioners, auditors, and their clients on two significant statements issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) in 2001: SFAS No. 141, Business Combinations, and SFAS No. 142, Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets. Written by four business valuation experts, two of whom advised the FASB on developing the new regulations, this book provides financial executives, CPAs, and valuation practitioners with everything they need to know to ensure full compliance with the standards.

The rules are sweeping and complex. Valuation for Financial Reporting explains the valuation implications of the financial reporting requirements, including how to identify the characteristics of goodwill and intangible assets, determine if impairment has occurred, and employ specific methods to assess the financial statement impact of such impairment. This must-have guide also:

  • Distinguishes fair value from fair market value
  • Includes examples of disclosure in audited financial statements
  • Discusses best practices for the valuation of in-process research and development
  • Includes detailed examples of valuations performed under SFAS Nos. 141 and 142
  • Emphasizes the importance of fair value work papers as part of the audit file

While numerous articles and commentaries on the subject have appeared since the FASB initially began considering the issues, Valuation for Financial Reporting is the first publication to provide "real world" examples of the valuation techniques and methodologies required to perform a purchase price allocation under SFAS No. 141 and an impairment study under SFAS No. 142. Valuation for Financial Reporting helps lift the veil of mystery surrounding these two important pronouncements and provides a practical guide for their implementation.

This essential guide:

  • Shows practitioners and clients how to apply the SFAS No. 141 rules for valuing and recording the assets acquired
  • Teaches practitioners and clients how to apply the SFAS No. 142 rules for measuring subsequent goodwill impairment
  • Presents detailed case studies and examples of applying and implementing SFAS Nos. 141 and 142
  • Provides "How To" guidance for the identification, measurement, and management of intangible assets

Format: Hardcover
If you need to comply with SFAS 141 and 142, you will want to read this book. The authors understand these standards inside and out. The book's coverage is practical, thorough and written in easy to understand language (which is important because the changes outlined in SFAS 141 and 142 are far reaching and complex.) The best part of this book is that in addition to providing compliance guidance for SFAS 141 & 142, it also shows you how to apply the standards. This is key! I also found the book helpful on showing me how to identify and value intagible assests which is still a somewhatnew area for me.
