2020 U.S. Goodwill Impairment Study
The Duff & Phelps 2020 U.S. Goodwill Impairment Study, now in its 12th year of publication, examines general and industry goodwill impairment (GWI) trends of over 8,800 U.S. publicly traded companies through December 2019.
This edition also gives a preview of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on goodwill impairments taken by U.S.-based public companies. Times of crises and significant economic recessions always place an additional focus on impairments recorded by publicly traded companies.
