Our Public Company Services

COMPLIANCE WITH SEC REPORTING

We provide all the services necessary to ensure you remain in compliance with SEC reporting requirements such as reviewed Form 10-Qs, annual audited financial statements in Form 10-K, and current reporting requirements such as major acquisitions or dispositions of assets reported in Form 8-K.

Our staff and partners regularly consult with the SEC on financial reporting matters, and we take pride in remaining current on all new SEC reporting rules and requirements.

Complete and accurate compliance ensures that you can obtain timely cost effective registration statements after SEC review and comments.

MARKET MAKER CONTACTS

For smaller publicly held companies such as those quoted on the Over-The-Counter (“OTC”) Bulletin Board or traded on the Small Cap Nasdaq, one of the challenges is finding reputable market makers in the company’s stock to help generate sufficient trading volume.

Some of our clients are quoted on the OTC Bulletin Board and consequently, we have developed a network of market maker contacts to assist you.

GOING PUBLIC AND REGISTRATION STATEMENTS

We can assist you in going public by filing a registration statement such as an IPO, Form 10, or a public shell reverse merger.

We can also help you raise additional capital through public offerings or the registration of stock previously issued in exempt transactions.
