    Balance Sheet - Goodwill

    I have known of VRSK since their IPO and have never purchased any stock (yet). Anyway, I noticed Goodwill on the balance sheet as .5 BILLION Dollars. Am I reading that correctly? Is this just to prop up their balance sheet, seems like an over inflated number and would like to hear what others might think of it.

    • not sure why i'm replying to a 2-year old post but... goodwill is probably worth much more than that. they have a loyal customer base that includes the vast majority of the entire property and casualty insurance business in the US... many of whom are even major shareholders.
