FASB's proposed Statement on Loss Contingency Disclosures, amending Statement 5 and 141R has faced many challenges. The proposal to amend FAS 5 and FAS 141R would make clearer the probability and timing in cash flow issues related to loss contingencies. However, some have pointed out that revisions would affect public companies adversely as they will be burdened with greater expenses, increased damages and settlements.
The Knowledge Congress is assembling a panel of key thought leaders and expert to help you understand the developments on Loss Contingency Disclosures. This two-hour webinar is a must see for everyone affected by these statements.
