Fair Value Disclosures: New disclosures for level 3 fair value measurements were effective Q1 2012. The disclosures were more complex and operationally intensive than originally expected by most preparers. In addition, the information provided may not always be conducive to an investor’s understanding of the unobservable inputs used in these measurements. This webcast would provide insight on the FASB’s requirements, a comparison/review of disclosures in companies’ SEC filings, SEC’s views on what should be disclosed, auditors’ concerns, and the current thinking on how this disclosure is expected to evolve.
