Our SEC and Corporate Services Group is dedicated to working with publicly-held and pre-IPO companies to meet the stringent reporting requirements that SEC and the PCAOB impose. Our team is expert in SEC reporting. In fact, several team members have served in key finance and accounting positions at SEC registrants and are experienced in all areas of SEC reporting from registration statements to standard, periodic filings.
Sound corporate governance is no longer a luxury, it's a necessity for publicly-held companies. However, there is strong evidence that privately-held companies can also benefit from sound corporate governance. A 2000 survey conducted by a leading management consulting firm, in cooperation with the World Bank and several institutional investor groups, revealed that investors are willing to pay an 18% premium for a well-governed company. We work with public and private companies to implement sound corporate governance programs.
Sarbanes-Oxley and Internal Controls
We've spent hundreds of hours examining Sarbanes-Oxley ("SOx"), assessing its real-world implications and studying what public companies of all sizes are doing to meet their expanded SOx requirements. We work directly with our clients and their audit firms to design an effective and efficient internal control compliance program. We assist our clients in assessing their internal controls over financial reporting, documenting these controls and assessing the business risks that affect their internal control system. We are experienced auditors and are available to perform initial and follow-up tests of controls. Our seasoned finance and accounting professionals are experienced in implementing control enhancements and operating efficiencies.
We provide our clients with interim CFO and financial management services whenever the need arises. We're experienced financial and accounting managers who can work not only with development-stage companies, but also established organizations in need of temporary high-level financial expertise in the following areas:
Business plans and investor presentations
Many firms lack the breadth of experience necessary to deliver these services. We have the experience and the people you value. We deliver professionalism that rivals the large, international firms at significantly lower costs.
We provide expert and objective analysis and assistance to our clients involved in commercial and civil litigation.
Business Valuation and Due-Diligence
It's important to have a trusted advisor to turn to when your company is involved in a business combination. We're experienced in handling business transactions that affect your company's financial position and profitability and the jobs of your employees.
Through our partnership with technology providers, we provide our clients with a full spectrum of accounting and management systems.
Other Consulting Services
We provide our clients with a variety of other consultative services such as cash management, outsourced internal audit, executive searches and research services.
