Valuation of intangible assets and the purchase price allocation process


Purchase price allocation is typically needed in the execution and integration stages of a transaction. It can be done during the financial due diligence phase to give an indication of assets, including intangible assets, and liabilities likely to be acquired, together with their likely impact on future earnings. It can then be formalised after completion of the transaction. This involves discussions with the company’s auditors to ensure that all financial impacts are quantified and agreed prior to the relevant review or audit date.
