Preparing your Investors for Revenue Recognition, with IR Magazine

SEC Swings the Doors Wide Open for Confidential Submissions of Draft Registration Statements

Many US companies are grappling with FASB’s changes to reporting revenue. These changes have a knock-on effect for the analysts who cover you as internal models need to be updated and revenue needs to be recalculated.

At Microsoft, the IR and accounting teams recognized the risks of the revenue recognition changes early. By starting early, they were able to address investor and analyst concerns, provide dedicated resources around revenue recognition, and clearly inform their investors and analysts of what the changes meant for them. The teams were recently presented with the Pacesetters of the Year award for excellence in financial reporting. Join this webinar for practical tips on navigating this accounting change and how you, as IR professionals, can keep your investors updated.

Speakers include:

• Ben Ashwell, digital editor, IR Magazine
• Kristin Chester, senior financial manager of investor relations, Microsoft
• Stacy Harrington, director of corporate revenue assurance, Microsoft

Short, sharp and packed with expert insight, this webinar will get you up to speed on these critical issues in just 30 minutes.
