Meet Up: Mind the GAAP Gap

Over the last decade, the number of GAAP adjustments has proliferated among publicly traded companies. At times management teams may employ various levers to hide financial and operational risks. In this presentation, Dan Mahoney, Head of Industrials Research at CFRA, explores the pros and cons of the most frequent adjustments, additional improvements that can be made, and which adjustments may be the most useful to investors. Common non-GAAP adjustments include:
  • Restructuring charges
  • Stock-based compensation expense
  • Pension adjustments
  • Purchase accounting
  • Adjustments to various cash flow metrics
This session provides a robust introduction for those with either a beginner and intermediate level of knowledge of forensic accounting and serves as a great refresher for those with more advanced knowledge.
