For only the second time in its four-year history, the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) issued an “audit alert” in December, telling auditors to be on guard for the double whammy of Financial Accounting Standard (FAS) 157–the so-called fair value rule–and the collapse of the subprime mortgage market, which when absorbed together may generate new worries for those companies with the biggest exposures to each. “When the credit markets headed south, the investment companies and commercial banks became the ones that will be most affected by FAS 157,” notes Barry E. Smith, a managing director at Smart Business Advisory and Consulting LLC of Devon, Pa.
