Whether by fluctuations in market capitalization or more systemic, operational disruptions, public companies were impacted by COVID-19. In Q1 2020, many public companies’ financial filings had limited quantifiable financial information related to the pandemic impact. While there is still a great deal of uncertainty as we near the end of Q2, investors will likely expect greater clarity in registrants’ Q2 filings, including a clear assessment of past, current and future impacts of COVID-19 on accounting matters via related disclosures. As public companies prepare Q2 financial reports, several matters should be considered prior to issuance.
During this webinar, we cover the following learning objectives:
- Conducting an internal assessment to determine the key areas of risk and the potential impacts on accounting and reporting
- Testing for recoverability or impairment of assets and unique issues for public companies
- Assessing the ability to continue as a going concern
- Determining SEC reporting and disclosure requirements
- Considering other impacts of COVID-19 and the macroeconomic / industry environments
