FASB Eyes Possible “Big Bang” Implementation of New Standards: Are Your Deal Teams Ready?


The Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) and International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) continue to push forward with their efforts to converge U.S. GAAP and IFRS, with a number of projects slated for completion in mid-2011 followed by a possible “Big Bang” implementation of the resulting accounting standards sometime thereafter.

These developments could significantly impact the evaluation and structuring of acquisitions and dispositions in the U.S. and abroad. In this point of view, we highlight the early results of several projects, provide examples of how those results could impact dealmakers and offer tips on how dealmakers might address these possible changes in their modeling and due diligence activities.
