Financial System Review and Financial Statement Preparation

Financial System Review and Financial Statement Preparation

Timely preparation of accurate financial statements is a must-have for every investor-owned company no matter the size.  Fairlead has built, upgraded or overhauled the process and preparation of financial statements for 12 companies owned by financial investors.

Our team’s experiences as CFO and Controller in NYSE-listed companies and investor-held portfolio companies gives us the skills and experience to build a professional accounting function that can be maintained by internal staff in the future.

Additionally, for start-up companies too small to hire internal staff, Fairlead can provide professional accounting support and preparation of financial statements.

Sample engagements include:

  • Replacing a manufacturing company’s negligent controller, rebuilding the accounting department and working with the company’s auditors to restate 3 years of financial statements;
  • Filling in for the sudden departure of an energy company’s controller, helping to train, transition and oversee an internal employee into the controller position;
  • Rebuilding the accounting department in a company’s new headquarters and upgrading reporting to track financial and operating data in a push-button reporting process; and,
  • Providing accounting and bookkeeping support for start-up technology companies.
