Now Available: Mercer Capital’s 2019 Energy Purchase Price Allocation Study

Mercer Capital is pleased to announce the release of the 2019 Energy Purchase Price Allocation Study.

This study researches and observes publicly available purchase price allocation data for four sub-sectors of the energy industry: (i) exploration and production; (ii) midstream; (iii) oilfield services; and (iv) refining.  This study is unlike any other in terms of energy industry specificity and depth.

The 2019 Energy Purchase Price Allocation Study provides a detailed analysis and overview of valuation and accounting trends in these sub-sectors of the energy space.  This study also enables key users and preparers of financial statements to better understand the asset mix, valuation methods, and useful life trends in the energy space as they pertain to business combinations under ASC 805 and GAAP fair value standards under ASC 820.  We utilized transactions that closed and reported their purchase allocation data in calendar year 2018.

This study is a useful tool for management teams, investors, auditors, and even insurance underwriters as market participants grapple with ever-increasing market complexity.  It provides data and analytics for readers seeking to understand undergirding economics and deal rationale for individual transactions.  The study also assists in risk assessment and underwriting of assets involved in these sectors. Further, it helps readers to better comprehend financial statement impacts of business combinations.
