The Knowledge Congress Has Scheduled a Live Webinar on Statement 5 and 141R Loss Contingency Disclosures

New York, NY, October 09, 2008 --( The Knowledge Congress, the leading producer of regulatory focused webinars, announced today that it has scheduled a live webinar on Statement 5 and 141R Loss Contingency Disclosures. This two-hour event is scheduled on Tuesday, October 28, 2008, at 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM (ET – New York).

Recently, the Financial Accounting Standards Board has proposed a new guidance regarding the disclosure of Certain Loss Contingencies. The amendment to FAS 5 and FAS 141R would make clearer the probability and timing in cash flow issues related to loss contingencies. The new proposal would require: greater descriptions of the risks/losses and their associated factors, claim amounts, annual disclosures, descriptive reconciliation, and exceptions.

The Knowledge Congress is assembling a panel of distinguished professionals and key regulators to help understand FAS5/141R and its impact on your firm and the broader market. The speakers will present their expert opinions in a two-hour Live webinar.
