Public Companies


U.S. public companies, their executives, and their advisors operate in a strictly regulated environment in which they face multiple challenges. These include proliferating rules and compliance requirements, intricate tax considerations, the competing interests of multiple stakeholders, cybersecurity threats, and pressures to manage for quarterly financial results. EisnerAmper helps public companies meet the demands they face today and helps them prepare for strategic opportunities tomorrow.

We work with public companies and those considering SEC registration, offering particular strengths to middle market businesses. EisnerAmper services include general risk management, internal audits and external audits, SEC accounting and reporting, and tax services. Our approach to SOX compliance is designed to support the internal control and financial statement assertion requirements mandated by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. We are one of the nation’s largest providers of services to SEC registrants, a registered member of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (“PCAOB”), and a member of the Center for Audit Quality.

Pre-IPO entities frequently turn to us for comprehensive pre-offering planning, including communications and road-show strategies. EisnerAmper has brought numerous companies public, and we bring clients deep experience and cross-industry and cross-functional expertise. A specialized technology audit and advisory group provides clients with solutions that cost-effectively manage technology risk.

Our clients engage us at many scales, from point-solution assistance for interpretation or implementation guidance regarding technical accounting issues to end-to-end transaction advisory support and assistance with all planning stages of the IPO process. Many of our clients ask us to supplement their internal finance staff for project or recurring needs, and in these cases our outsourcing professionals bring expertise that includes:

  • finance department support
  • transaction due diligence – audit, IPO and capital readiness
  • GAAP and IFRS reporting
  • treasury functions
  • tax compliance

Our team works with skilled financial professionals at every level within client organizations, from board audit committees to CFOs to external bankers and legal advisors. In all cases, we strive to build objective, durable relationships. We are proud of the fact that many of our public company client relationships extend back many years.
