Public Company Services

Public companies face a host of scrutiny – from investors and shareholders to regulatory reporting agencies. In partnership with MFA, public filers can satisfy watchful eyes with everything from initial SEC registration and public debt filings to ongoing SEC reporting and compliance for quarterly reviews and annual audits of financial statements, internal controls attestation and complex accounting and financial matters.

MFA also successfully fulfills the independence-driven needs of public companies by serving as a complementary provider of non-audit advisory services such as tax planning, compliance tax provision work, Sarbanes-Oxley compliance and business valuations. We often act as an extension of a public company’s internal team, bringing standby senior level technical expertise to bear on complex issues they need resolved, whether it be revenue recognition, transfer pricing, stock compensation, derivatives, purchase accounting, intangible asset valuation or goodwill impairment.
