With the publication of Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842), FASB made significant changes to how leases are recognized on a company’s financial statements. The most notable change is the new requirement for operating leases to be presented as a ‘right of use’ asset and a lease liability. In this webcast we will discuss the impact of this change on estimating business enterprise values (BEV), weighted average cost of capital, and the impact of this change on impairment testing. Learn the steps to recognize a new lease, determine the appropriate discount rates, and the financial statement impact. Additionally, we will review how the current lease guidance may impact their own valuation engagements and the important differences between ASC 842 and IFRS 16 standards.
