“As the Obama economy slouches along, many small companies need hands-on, “embedded” financial management support at affordable cost. After 7 years, we continue to see steady growth in our professional ranks, our client base, and the scope of our practice”, said Dave Gilroy, Managing Director in Charlotte. Valuation services (e.g. 409a, ASC 805, transaction support valuations) are growing rapidly, for instance, and we are thankful for expanded referrals from lawyers, CPA firms and commercial banks. Bank-ready financial reporting, shrewd working capital management, intense scrutiny of cost, realistic forecasts, insightful performance analysis, and pristine control are more critical than ever, and our low-cost, fractional use solutions match up well for entrepreneurial companies.”
