Financial statements for public companies come with their own set of requirements and challenges. FML has extensive experience in public audit and attestation services.
Our experience includes not just services related to standard periodic filings (10-K, 10-Q, etc.) but also for initial public and secondary offerings (S-1, S-3, S-4 and more). We are well-versed in SEC requirements relating to business combinations, acquisitions and other significant transactions of issuers. Our services range from working with clients responding to SEC comments to providing “comfort letters” requested by underwriters and others. You can learn more about our transaction services here.
There is no secret to our exceptionality in this realm: we ensure that your business is served as though yours is our only client. Clients work closely with senior-level staff and partners, each with extensive SEC reporting, accounting knowledge, and experience. In fact, significant partner level review and oversight is standard for FML public audits. Additionally, our staff working with public companies are required to have specialized continuing education in auditing and reporting for public companies, as well as a knowledge of changes from the SEC and PCAOB.
