SDM Accounting Insights: Private Companies: Beware of SEC Scrutiny

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) doesn’t monitor just public companies. The risk of regulatory scrutiny also extends to private companies that may be acquired by a public company or that are large enough to consider going public. These entities must walk a fine line between 1) enticing would-be investors with attractive financial projections, and 2) painting an overly optimistic picture that’s unrealistic. How do your private company’s corporate governance practices measure up? Now’s the time to shore them up. We can help you develop a comprehensive approach to SEC compliance as soon as possible.
