This webinar considers the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on business valuations and corporate risk assessment. The impact of financial structure on planning performance evaluation is considered, specifically the relative measures (ratios) used in financial statement analysis. The webinar introduces a number of distress analysis tools that management accountants can utilise to stress-test the financial statements of their companies and provide guidance to strategies that will not only protect the entity but also enable it to emerge relatively unscathed in the post COVID era.
