Cost Allocation and Dispute Resolution

A publicly traded company purchased brass foundries across the Country. Seller escrowed contingent environmental liability funds. Unspent dollars were periodically released to seller’s shareholders. At the last escrow period, the buyer disputed the seller’s claim to the remaining $12 million. The agreement provided for “baseball” arbitration by an independent third party environmental consultant. BBJ Group was retained; its decision based on a review of written, final arguments provided by the parties.

Financial Reporting

Responsible Evaluation of Financial Obligations for Environmental Issues

Identification, disclosure, and measurement of environmental liabilities are increasing concerns for many companies. Amendments to SEC Regulation S-K and FASB Interpretation No. 47 (FIN 47) create a requirement for greater disclosure and accrual and make it clear that a broad range of environmental liabilities requires GAAP treatment and accrual as “conditional liability retirement obligations.”
