Goodwill Impairment Around the World

The topic of goodwill impairment is often near the top of the corporate CFO’s agenda. The challenging economic environment, the implementation of new accounting standards such as IFRS13 and a company’s general propensity for acquisitions may play a role in the recognition of goodwill and any subsequent impairments on a company’s balance sheet.

Duff & Phelps recently published a series of 2013 Goodwill Impairment Studies covering the European, U.S. and Canadian markets. These three standalone reports offer a survey of goodwill impairment trends amongst companies in those respective markets, including comparisons by industry.

This new article, “Goodwill Impairment Around the World,” provides an overview of some key observations and findings across all three reports.

Note: The above reports include data through year-end 2012, as data for the full year 2013 is not publicly available as of the publish date of this article. Duff & Phelps is currently preparing an analysis of 2013 goodwill impairments, which will publish later in 2014.
