The Q1 reports have been issued during the second half of April 2020. Most companies delivered good profits and stable balance sheets so far. The outlook for Q2 appears to be much worse. A special issue here is the role of impairments.
What can we expect to see in the months to come? This includes tangible assets and not to forget the goodwill on the consolidated balance sheets. The banks have a special version of impairments related to credit losses and their magnitude. This webinar focuses on the role and information content of impairments during the Covid-19 crisis. What have we seen so far? What can we expect? What does the system look like? Pro-cyclical vs counter-cyclical? “Too much too fast or too little too late”?
The webinar will be about 1 hour:
• We will start with an initial analysis based on financial theory and frameworks for about 30 minutes
• We will then open up for discussions and knowledge sharing on the subject during the final 30 minutes
Webinar will be held in English
