Event description

Description

As a litigator, family or commercial lawyer, why should earnings manipulation matter to you? One reason is that earnings drive value. Manipulating earnings manipulates value and your client could suffer:

  • Is your client involved in shareholder dispute or matrimonial matter where the other party has a controlling interest in a business? Is the other party potentially understating business earnings to artificially reduce the value of the business? Is your client getting less than their fair share?

  • Has your client been involved in a sales transaction where the vendor overstated earnings and so artificially inflated the sales price? Did your client pay too much?

  • Is your client a defendant in a breach of contract matter? Has the plaintiff overstated earnings prior to the breach? Does your client face an overstated claim?

For the benefit of legal professionals with a phobia of numbers, the focus is on cases rather than figures. Simon will use Balance Sheet Jenga to explain how earnings are recognised and how they interact with the balance sheet.

We share six matters where earnings were magically manipulated and explore the consequences of the manipulation and what lessons can be learnt. Cases range from those involving small owner managed businesses to major international corporate collapses. This is a boardroom seminar and limited to 12 guests.
