Focus on what counts

Business Combinations

Focused on Your Future

Mergers and acquisitions, even the most straightforward, come with their own unique set of challenges and complex accounting issues under ASC 805 as well as international accounting standards. Some examples include variable consideration, common control (or “put together”) transactions and reverse acquisitions. All having ripple effects on business operations and performance measurements. In addition, these transactions can create a strain on your internal resources, and often require technical expertise beyond that of your finance department.
