Interpreting Non-GAAP Reports

Interpreting Non-GAAP Reports

Wall Street Prep
Updated Feb 27, 2019

Course Overview 

GAAP-based financial statements included in company annual, interim and quarterly reports are increasingly becoming less relevant than "unofficial" non-GAAP/IFRS metrics. In this course, we use real-life examples to walk through the challenges and lesser-understood nuances of accurately normalizing both historical results and forecasts. We discuss the mechanics and concepts required for correctly adjusting operating models and valuation models, as well as common pitfalls associated with tax adjustments, share count adjustments and forecasting non-GAAP items in integrated financial statement models.
