Learn why quality of earnings reviews are important in the investment due diligence process and identify common tricks used by some executives to distort earnings. We present quality of earnings red flags, which act as early warning indicators.

The webinar also presents our experience in carrying out quality of earnings reviews. We take you through some of our experiences — including highlights from a review a couple of years before it made headlines
