Purchase Price Allocation
Due to complex valuation and accounting issues, company acquisitions set high requirements for the buying entity.
In the course of the purchase price allocation (PPA), the costs of a company acquisition are allocated to assets, liabilities, and contingent liabilities. Fair value recognition regularly results in the disclosure of hidden reserves. Moreover, prior non-recognisable intangible assets are recognised for the first time.
A purchase price allocation is regularly associated with a number of complex valuation and accounting issues. We support our clients in the time-consuming identification and valuation of prior non-recognisable assets, e.g. brands.
