  • This seminar will teach participants how to approach a purchase price allocation for financial reporting purposes after a business acquisition or combination closes. The seminar provides a summary of valuation techniques used for specific, identifiable intangible assets and provides a step by step review of sample calculations for valuing different types of intangible assets resulting from a business purchase.

    The course will provide participants with tools that will allow them to prepare a purchase price allocation with less support from an outsourced advisor than they otherwise might use. It will teach participants how to segment enterprise cash flows based on capital charges and how to allocate them to different intangible assets, as well as how to assess the relative riskiness of different types of intangible assets that result from a business acquisition or combination. Also covered are methods to segment enterprise cash flows based on capital charges and how to allocate these charges to different intangible assets. Participants will learn techniques for assessing the relative riskiness of different types of intangible assets that result from a business acquisition or combination.
