Presented by CoStar and Financial Executives International
 Watch Archived Webinar | Download Presentation

The economic fallout from COVID-19 has already caused an unprecedented number of lease changes for many companies. Opportunities still abound for companies to harness lease data to conserve cash and even generate extra cash. Companies need to identify these opportunities, execute on them, and report the results in compliance with new lease accounting standards.

3 Major Learning Points:

1) Lease concessions, which preserve cash but trigger accounting policy decisions
2) Lease modifications to drive cost savings 
3) Cash recoveries based on lease clauses
