We are the only research firm in the market place that can provide comprehensive audit firm market share. If you want to know who audits who, contact Audit Analytics.

Business Development

Knowing who your specific public company prospects are can help you better focus your efforts and enable you to periodically review the audit, compliance, governance and litigation status of those companies. With the Audit Analytics searches and daily e-mail alerts, you can also monitor compelling events that present an immediate opportunity to follow-up with your prospects and clients.

In addition to our core SEC products, our substantial databases of other independent audits provide market intelligence on over a million non-public entities, from broker dealers and private funds to ERISA benefit plans and Single Audits. These tools can help identify market opportunities in thousands of engagements.

Due Diligence, Risk Management, Independence and Acceptance Reviews

The Audit Analytics due diligence profiles provide a comprehensive analysis of audit and compliance related disclosures for every registrant. Firms can easily screen and monitor their list of clients for accounting related distress and flag on issues such as late filings, financial restatements, SEC comment letters, adverse internal control and disclosure control assessments. The detailed Audit Analytics issues taxonomies provide key data for Risk Management, Independence and Acceptance reviews.

Thought leadership

Use the Audit Analytics data to support your periodic research of disclosure trends. Because the Audit Analytics data can be stratified by industry, location and company size, you can create trend analysis for the specific markets or industries that you support. This analysis can be incorporated into executive presentations, proposals and reports that you share with your clients. Audit Analytics enables you to quantify and benchmark disclosures related to a number of issues, from litigation and SEC correspondence to audit fees and director and officer changes.

Examples of how Audit Firms currently use Audit Analytics

  1. Create a peer group of prospective clients.
  2. Benchmark the peer groups periodic disclosures (e.g. Auditor Fees, Sarbanes-Oxley Section 404 Internal Controls over Financial Reporting and Section 302 Disclosure Control Issues).
  3. Monitor the peer group for compelling events, daily disclosures (e.g. Auditor Changes, Director & Officer Changes, Private Placements and Financial Restatements).
  4. Create comprehensive due diligence reports.
  5. Track the stake holders and business relationships of your clients and prospects.
