Are you considering acquiring a business?

You are negotiating an acquisition and structuring a business purchase agreement. There are a variety of financial reporting and accounting considerations that you will need to address as the transaction progresses, like purchase price accounting, post-deal integration of the acquired business, transaction related accounting issues and regulatory filing or additional reporting requirements. Does your team have the resources available, experience from similar transactions, and technical knowledge necessary to achieve your desired outcomes?

Have you decided to spin off or sell a division or subsidiary?

The decision to spin off or sell a division of your company has been made and you require the preparation of auditable stand-alone financial statements for inclusion in regulatory filings or as part of the sales documents. Will you be able to prepare the carve-out financial statements and meet the requisite regulatory filing deadlines or those imposed by the acquirer, without interruptions to your business?
