购并法上调价值被取消


Explanation:
purchase accounting指购并会计法,其基本内涵就是不是简单地将被收购公司与收购公司的资产负债表简单地加在一起,而是引入一个goodwill,用于说明购入的premium。同时,purchase accounting会对被收购公司的资产进行重估,其中inventory的价值会以fair value而不是book value计入。

step-up即增加、上调,即在对被收购公司的inventory进行评估时fair value高于book value;

reversal即指取消、逆向操作。

所以整句是说,原来在收购时对存货价值的向上调整现在取消,换言之,当前的存货价值下降。

  -> 我感觉“冲销”(write-off/down)并不合适。不过也许这里有会计达人能提出专业的讲法。
