Duff & Phelps Goodwill Impairment Study featured in Business Insider

Data from Duff & Phelps 2019 U.S. Goodwill Impairment Study was quoted in a Business Insider article that discussed Salesforce’s goodwill balance and acquisitions strategy.

In 2018, total goodwill impairment of U.S. publicly traded companies reached $78.9 billion, more than twice the previous year's figure and the highest level since the 2008 financial crisis.
