Public Company Services

As a public entity, you’re always in the spotlight. You know just how important it is to have an accurate portrayal of your organization’s business and financial activities, especially with the continually evolving reporting requirements. That’s why it’s essential to have a trusted partner making sure your “t’s” are crossed and your “i’s” are dotted. Failing to do so could result in shareholder actions, downgrades from analysts, and increased scrutiny from the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

There are many advantages for a private company to go public. Becoming a publicly held company can add both tangible and financial value, but the preparation for the transition can produce a stronger management foundation as well as improved internal controls.

GBH assurance accountants can assist you with registration statements such as:

  • Form S-1
  • Form S-3
  • Form S-4
  • Form S-8
  • Form 10
  • Form F-4
  • Form S-11
  • Offering circulars

Your public company must always be prepared for rapid growth and be instantly responsive to evolving opportunities. It should also have the appropriate finance technologies and a streamlined financial close process to support the long list of complex reporting requirements. All of this information must fit seamlessly together to ensure long-term profitability and success for your business. That’s where GBH can help you shine.
