High-Quality Audit and Accounting Solutions Based on Deep M&D Knowledge
The Value of a High-Quality Audit Reputation
Reliable financial statements are critical to manufacturers and distributors. M&D management teams often consider various growth strategies such as enhancing product lines, expanding to new markets, and acquiring upstream and downstream companies in their value chains. The ability to find sources of low-cost capital to fund these investments can be tied directly to the quality and reliability of their financial statements.
Lenders and other key M&D stakeholders rely on independent audits to provide meaningful assessments of the financial statements prepared by company management. At Crowe Horwath LLP, our auditors understand this responsibility and exercise professional skepticism to accomplish this essential function. Our audit teams are aligned along industry and subsector lines – enabling us to add depth and breadth of knowledge to our audit process.
