Acquisition of goodwill

Acquisition of goodwill

The word “goodwill” has a broad meaning for business entrepreneurs. Some entrepreneurs equate goodwill with their own trade name. There is some truth to this. Some businesses have been around for 50-75 years and this does create an image in the mind of the public. The accounting definition of goodwill is different: Goodwill is the excess of the acquisition price of an asset over its fair market value. This excess (premium) is capitalized as an intangible asset on the balance sheet of a company. The accounting treatment of good will used to be  straightforward. The cost was written…

Organizational learning acquitions

By Jenn Greacen, an EO Central Florida member and executive director of The Clear Agency. My 6-year-old presented it most appropriately when she told her teacher that she hadn’t seen much of mommy lately because she had been “preparing for a murder.” It wasn’t murder— it was a merger. Merging my advertising agency with an international design firm was, without a doubt, the learning experience of a lifetime. I’m a marketing gal. I know pretty pictures, strong messaging and how to make people buy things they never knew existed. I had never done a merger before, and I didn’t realize…

Valuating discounted cash flaw

By Valuentum: As part of our process, we perform a rigorous discounted cash-flow methodology that dives into the true intrinsic worth of companies. In Kimberly-Clark s (KMB) case, we think the firm is trading at the high end of our fair value range. We think it is fairly valued at $68 per share, significantly lower than where it is currently trading. For some background, we think a comprehensive analysis of a firm s discounted cash -flow valuation, relative valuation versus industry peers, as well as an assessment of technical and momentum indicators is the best way to identify…

Patent explanation

Midst Toil And Tribulation – Snippet 25 .IV. Tellesberg Palace, City of Tellesberg, Kingdom of Old Charis, Empire of Charis Sharleyan Ahrmahk stood beside her husband in the bright sunlight. A warm breeze danced and curtsied around the terrace, rustling and chattering in the broad-bladed palmettos, spike-thorn, and tropical flowers which surrounded it. A pair of spider monkeys chased one another through the sword-like canopy of nearpalms high overhead, scolding and screeching at one another, their voices clear but distant through the wind’s voice. Closer at hand, a brilliantly…

How to evaluate know-how?

James Agate presents the unofficial quality rater handbook for guest posting campaigns. With all the recent turbulence in the SERPs, many agencies and businesses are recognising the need to move budgets from the lower-end link building tactics to techniques like guest posting. Guest posting is very easy to get wrong though, as a technique it may well be considered high-quality but just like any other link building tactic, it s the execution which determines whether the links earned are high-quality (the devil is in the detail!). My main concern with all the hub-bub going on…

Copyrighted material explanation

Just after the adoption of Bill C11, the Supreme Court of Canada handed down five decisions that mark a significant shift in copyright policy, a second wave after the trilogy of Théberge,  CCH and  SOCAN v CAIP. Read my take at the time here. The five cases dealt in one form or another with collective management of copyright. Of these five cases, three will likely be seen as less controversial. In SOCAN v Bell, a unanimous court dismissed an appeal from a decision by the Copyright Board of Canada,  that had found that listening to previews of a song in deciding whether to make…
