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.
