Accounting standards continue to evolve and, in particular, valuation methodologies for purchase price allocations are constantly being refined. Therefore, selecting the right purchase price allocation provider can be critical. Choosing the wrong consultant to perform a purchase price allocation can easily result in lost time, money, and management focus, and could potentially result in restatements.
