Are you maximizing your board and audit committee potential in M&A transactions?
We invite you to replay the latest KPMG/NACD Quarterly Audit Committee Webcast, featuring a dialogue with KPMG's Brian Heckler, Advisory partner, M&A, and James P. Liddy, U.S. Audit vice chair, on audit committee/board oversight of M&A in the current environment.
After a rush of year-end deals prior to the implementation of tax changes in the United States, global mergers and acquisition activity has once again turned sluggish. In a low-growth business climate, however, M&A continues to be an important tool for corporations to expand into new products and markets or unlock the value or an asset. Heckler offers insight on the role of the board and audit committee in helping the company realize the value -- and avoid pitfalls -- in M&A.
This 60-minute webcast also covered recent financial reporting considerations and regulatory and accounting developments.
