• Transaction and Capital Market Readiness

When the stakes can’t get any higher

Every so often, an organization makes a change that defines its future.

Initial public offerings (IPOs). Taking a company private. Selling the business. Divesting a part of the company. Whether these key transactions take place in the capital markets or not, they invite increased scrutiny. The high stakes for the business extend to its financial reporting.

The need depends on the organization. For some companies, leadership can move forward with a minor clean-up of the financial statements. For others, we conduct an IPO readiness assessment to finance the deal through the public markets. For still others, we overhaul their financial statements—for example, by adopting new financial reporting standards such as IFRS or U.S. GAAP.

The common denominator: the surprise of many business leaders as they approach large transactions and capital markets for the first time. Whether preparing for an IPO, satisfying an investor, or communicating with a private buyer, your stakeholders and the regulatory bodies expect more from your financial reporting.

Big transaction, big picture

The impact of a complex transaction goes beyond a moment in time. By reviewing the implications for financial reporting before the transaction, our Accounting Advisory team helps you protect the company—proactively and with purpose. We provide both pre- and post-transaction support.

And when the transaction involves multinational entities, we bring in colleagues from our international tax team to align your reporting and tax needs.
