2012 Goodwill Impairment Study

The 2012 Goodwill Impairment Study, done by Duff & Phelps, examines the general and industry trends of goodwill impairment for U.S. companies and includes the results of a survey of FEI members.
New in this year’s study are ten industry sector spotlights which highlights key goodwill impairment metrics, as well as cross-tabulation analyses which evaluate the relationships between FEI member responses to two or more questions.
     2012 Study Highlights

  • U.S. companies impaired $29 billion of goodwill in 2011.
  • Financial services firms represented the greatest share of total impairments, followed by consumer staples and healthcare.
  • Contrary to what was previously anticipated, only 52% of private companies and 43% of public companies applied the qualitative assessment option (ASU 2011-08) to some or all of their reporting units.
