Deloitte Accounting & Reporting Advisory IPO Readiness / SPAC Senior in Houston, Texas
We are in the process of expanding Deloitte's Accounting and Reporting Advisory practice within the IPO/ SPAC (Special Purpose Acquisition Company) readiness service offering. Preparing for an IPO/ SPAC can be a complex and time-consuming process and companies must address financial reporting, accounting, and auditing considerations to prepare a registration statement and ultimately go public. A target company in a SPAC merger will need to prepare itself for being a public company normally within a few months, which is a shorter timeline compared to a traditional IPO for substantially the same preparation, due diligence, prospectus-drafting and SEC engagement and oversight. Public company readiness for both an IPO or a SPAC should cover cross-functional topics such as: accounting and financial reporting, finance effectiveness, financial planning and analysis, tax matters, internal controls and internal audit, human resources and compensation, treasury, enterprise risk management, technology and cybersecurity.
