Non-GAAP Financial Measures - What You Need to Know

This course provides an overview of non-GAAP financial measures with a particular emphasis on comments from the SEC, the FASB, as well as comment letter analysis from several of the Big 4 accounting firms. Non-GAAP financial measures continue to rank at the top of the most frequent comment letters issued by the SEC. As a result, it's important to understand the guidance with respect to these measures to ensure that an entity's financial statements remain GAAP compliant and are not misleading.

Learning Objectives:

  • Differentiate between a GAAP financial measure and a non-GAAP financial measure.
  • Recognize examples of different types of non-GAAP financial measures.
  • Identify which SEC guidance is applicable to different types of non-GAAP financial measures.
  • Recognize disclosures within the scope of Regulation G.
  • Identify key requirements included within both Regulation G and Regulation S-K related to these measures.
