FASB Statement No. 141R will bring about sweeping changes to business combinations that close on or after January 1, 2009. The financial meltdown led to a drastic reduction and delays in M&A transactions this year though as the market begins to thaw, we see this activity picking up sharply. As a result, these transactions will fall likely fall under the new FAS 141R which is a principles-based standard. The new guidance will transition the measuring of the value of purchased assets and liabilities from the cost allocation approach of the past to a fair value approach. FAS 141R also significantly changes: expensing transaction costs & accounting for: contingent considerations, R&D, income tax, and bargain purchases. The potential impact of FAS 141R on M&A activities is significant.

In anticipation of increased M&A activity next year, companies, valuation experts, accounting and legal experts must have a complete understanding of what FAS 141R and its impact on the business combination transactions. Our panel of key thought leaders and experts will conduct a thorough panel of the most critical issues which will be followed by a Q&A session in which the audience will be invited to ask the speakers questions live.
