What is a QoE Report?

Quality of Earnings (QoE) report is a financial analysis that assesses the sustainability and reliability of a company’s earnings. It is typically conducted during the due diligence process, often in the context of mergers and acquisitions (M&A), but it can also be used for internal purposes by companies and their stakeholders. The primary objective of a Quality of Earnings report is to provide a deeper understanding of a company’s financial performance and the factors that may impact its future earnings potential.
