M&A Accounting for M&A – Acquisitions Combinations & Divestitures

 

Acquisitions, spin-offs, joint ventures or any other significant business transactions require specialized resources. We can help with pre and post-transaction accounting research with a focus on obtaining a deep understanding of the business purpose, nature and anticipated results of the transaction. This includes proactive advice on accounting and financial reporting consequences of different elements of the transaction such as:

 

  •    Business combination vs. asset purchase
  •    Identifying the acquirer
  •    Determining the acquisition date
  •    Measuring the purchase consideration, including cash and non-cash elements
  •    Acquired intellectual property
  •    In-process research and development
  •    Acquired tangible assets
  •    Backlog
  •    Customer relationship
  •    Non-compete agreements
  •    Trademarks
  •    Share-based awards
  •    Pre-existing relationships
  •    Working capital adjustments
  •    Deferred revenue
  •    Leases
  •    Tax and deferred tax elements
  •    Acquisition-related costs
  •    Pre-acquisition contingencies
  •    Contingent considerations
