This presentation will describe recurring issues in Health Care M&A that can complicate purchase accounting or even sour deals, unless they’re identified early. In most cases, these issued are simple to deal with at the onset of the deal, such as properly identifying any acquired intangible assets or if a cash-to-accrual conversion must occur, but if left to fester such issues will create problems for everyone involved, including the external auditors.
