Please join us as Tony Sondhi presents the first webinar of our new series on non-GAAP reporting by publicly traded companies. Tony will discuss SEC regulations and enforcement, review common practices, and analyze queries from investors and analysts during earnings calls.
This webinar is critical for members of financial reporting and investor relations teams of publicly traded companies and private companies considering IPOs. You will benefit from these webinars if you are currently involved in preparing, reviewing, or presenting financial statements and/or non-GAAP disclosures. Each webinar in this series will address several issues you, as a member of your company’s financial reporting team, need to understand about recognition, measurement, and disclosures related to non-GAAP reporting.
