Assessing the financial impact of a carve-out

Consulting and interim management

On behalf of an energy group, we assessed the accounting and financial impact of the carve-out of 2 permanent establishments and foreign subsidiaries. These impacts were measured in French Gaap for the French entity’s parent company financial statements and in IFRS for the Group’s consolidated financial statements.

⚠️ Definition A “carve-out” is the sale by a company or group of companies of a branch of activity.

Course of the mission

The mission began with discussions with established financial teams in France and abroad.

Following these discussions, the process of separating out the activities of foreign establishments was broken down into different stages.

For each of these stages, we have identified the accounting and financial impacts, with a specific focus on the treatment of liaison accounts. We have presented our results in the form of a reconciliation table under IFRS and French Gaap.

Tools used

SAP FC (formerly MAGNITUDE) was used to extract local and consolidated data under French Gaap and IFRS.
