About the webinar

Do you understand the process of reverse takeovers, their benefits and the risks involved?  The presentation will explore the alternative method of listing to an IPO and reviews the accounting issues which can arise when non-reporting entities become reporting entities. It covers:

  • Reverse takeover or IPO – what are the relevant considerations?
  • Recognising when there has been a reverse takeover and understanding what you need to do - applying the reverse acquisition accounting standard
  • Benefits and risks of reverse takeovers
  • Determining the price and valuation of both the listed and unlisted businesses
  • Characterising the listed entity:
    • is it just a shell and not a true business acquisition?
    • is it a share based payment?
    • how to account for a share based payment in a reverse takeover
