Power and utilities: operating conditions affect on assets
Hosted by the Global Power & Utilities Center
Many US power and utilities (P&U) companies may be facing an asset impairment for the first time in years. These companies will need to assess the value of their assets in a potentially worsening environment and determine if the impact of shale gas, carbon tax and low demand growth on future cash flows will require an asset write down.
Join Ernst & Young LLP professionals as they discuss what companies should consider as they embark on an analysis of whether a goodwill, intangible or fixed asset impairment loss is required.
Topics to be discussed:
- Macro economic trends to watch
- Asset valuation issues
- Accounting matters
- Impact on business models
