Have you decided to acquire a business, but are not clear on whether you will be acquiring a subsidiary or a joint arrangement?
Are you wondering whether the consideration will be classified as debt or equity?
Are you concerned about what your target’s P&L and balance sheet will look like after applying your accounting policies?
Are you thinking about listing, but are not sure about the accounting and reporting requirements?
We can help by reviewing draft agreements and providing advice on the classification of the target entity, the consideration paid and the financing for the deal.
If you are selling a business, we can support in the preparation of carve out financial statements.
After completion, we can assist in determining your acquisition accounting, including valuation support during the purchase price allocation exercise. If there are GAAP differences between you and your acquired entity, we can help with the adjustments to ensure the opening balance sheet is compliant with your policies.
