Marcum LLP Leads in IPO Market Share Among Non-Big Four Accounting Firms
New York City, NY – Marcum LLP performed more IPO audits than any other non-Big Four accounting firm during the first three quarters of 2017, according to Audit Analytics.
Between January 1 and September 30, Marcum completed 15 IPO audits. The Firm’s performance thus far this year continues the overall growth trend that Marcum’s SEC Services Practice has recorded since 2015, in both net new SEC clients and IPO market share.
“Companies in the process of going public know that the expertise and credibility of their audit firm is a key concern for investors. Marcum’s SEC Services Practice has continued to win the confidence of clients preparing for SEC registration, as well as those new to the rigors of reporting as public companies,” said David Bukzin, Marcum’s vice chairman and national leader of SEC Services. “I always say that once a company goes public, it has two businesses – the business of being profitable and the business of being public. It is paramount for public companies to understand their compliance and reporting obligations and to fulfill those obligations with complete commitment and transparency.”
Marcum’s SEC Practice is nationally recognized for the annual Marcum MicroCap Conference in New York City, a forum for publicly traded companies with less than $500 million in market capitalization to network with fund managers and high net worth investors who focus on small cap equities. More than 2000 investors and other participants from every segment of the microcap marketplace attend the conference each year.
