The Knowledge Congress Has Scheduled a Live Webinar on SFAS 144

New York, NY, December 12, 2008 --( The Knowledge Congress, the leading producer of regulatory focused webinars, announced today that it has scheduled a live webinar on SFAS 144. This two-hour event is scheduled on Thursday, February 26, 2009, at 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM (ET – New York).

SFAS 144 modifies the accounting for asset write downs and discontinued operations. It retains the SFAS 121 requirements for recognizing and measuring impairment losses, supersedes accounting and reporting provisions of APB Opinion No. 30, and amends ARB No. 51 on consolidated financial statements. It uses traditional fair-value measurements to assess whether long-lived assets are permanently impaired. This, however, brought about confusion among various sectors. Your company could likely be one of those affected by these statements. Be guided, be enlightened and be wary to avoid sanctions in the end.

Find out in this live webinar, produced by The Knowledge Congress, a panel of experts to discuss the implications of this statement as well as their recommendations on how your company can adapt to this new system.

Speakers/Faculty Panel

Stamos Nicholas, National Business Valuation Service Line Leader, Deloitte Financial Advisory Services LLP
