Purchase Price Allocations for Mergers & Acquisitions

We provide technical expertise to solve complex issues relating to mergers and acquisitions. All intangible assets that have been identified are required to be valued and analyzed. In compliance with Ind AS, IFRS and US GAAP, an acquirer needs to report the specific types and associated fair values of the acquired tangible (monetary and non-monetary) and intangible assets. These fair values are included on the opening post-acquisition balance sheet and are periodically adjusted to reflect depreciation and amortization charges, which reduce the carrying value of the associated asset (carrying value is calculated as the difference between original fair value, less cumulative depreciation and amortization charges).

Intangible assets that are not amortized, such as goodwill, must be tested for impairment on at least an annual basis. We utilize commonly accepted valuation methodologies to derive supportable valuations for assets identified in connect with a purchase price allocation. We engage the audit team early in the process to better facilitate the review process and reduce the time and burden on management.
