Norwalk, CT, September 30, 2019—The Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) today announced the date of its public roundtable discussion to gather views on its recent Invitation to Comment (ITC), Identifiable Intangible Assets and Subsequent Accounting for Goodwill.

The event will take place on Friday, November 15, 2019, from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. Eastern Standard Time at the FASB offices located at 401 Merritt 7 in Norwalk, Connecticut.  An afternoon session from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. is tentative.
