A company's financial statements are meant to communicate to investors how a business works, how successful it has been and what to expect in the future. But rather than stating it outright, the financial statements often require hands-on analysis and careful reading to draw meaningful conclusions. Cara Lombardo, The Wall Street Journal's mergers and acquisitions reporter and a Certified Public Accountant, will lead the class through several easy shortcuts to spot the types of red flags that can lead to big stories.

This session is sponsored by Bloomberg. IRE retains control of content, including the topic and speaker selection, for all conference sessions.
