Middle Market Growth, “New Revenue Recognition Standard Could Prompt a New Story”, by Tam Harbert:

Our thoughts:  This article is an interesting read on how ASC 606 could affect the way PE firms project growth, assign value, and market portfolio companies due to ASC 606.  This article focuses on both the “art” and “science” factors that must be considered by PE firms for portfolio companies when ASC 606 is adopted.  With the ASC 606 adoption date coming for private companies later this year, this article holds value on both content and timing fronts.
