Pre-IPO Planning

Are you investigating the IPO process? Public companies face stringent financial reporting requirements enacted through the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002. Protect your company from excessive IPO cost and audit effort, unnecessary business risk, fraud, and mistakes with our value-driven approach.

The IPO process requires companies to put their finances under the public microscope. Strong, well-documented internal controls help ensure that your information passes the healthy skepticism and critical eye of outside investors. Your IPO cost can vary significantly, depending on the methods and approach taken to complete the process, as well as how you choose to adapt your organization to the requirements of being a publicly-traded company.

Vibato provides expert consulting services and the Vibato Internal Control Suite™ to help companies accelerate their IPO process and reduce IPO cost. We help you mitigate business risk; implement the appropriate internal control procedures; and complete the testing and documentation required by external auditors. This proven, scalable solution delivers an integrated, standardized system of internal controls based upon the external audit and risk analysis methodologies of the Big Four and large regional audit firms, and best-practices of the Fortune 20.

Don’t spend months of effort or hundreds of thousands of dollars wasted on reproductions of internal control procedures as part of your IPO process. We know what you need, and how to deliver a proven approach with audit-ready outputs to streamline your system of internal controls and provide full risk mitigation.
