Competition by Fees (Non-Top 100)

How MaloneBailey Compares with Non-Top 100 Firms that Perform Significant SEC Work

Current as of May 2011

We have two types of competitors – ‘Top 100′ firms and the smaller local firms

‘Smaller local firms’ – the below is a list that we’ve compiled of our main competitors. We have by far the largest SEC practice of all non-Top 100 firms in North America. This size attribute is critical because only multiple audit partners and staff practicing these unique types of audits full-time can attain the depth of expertise that our firm already possesses. This depth of expertise enables us to deliver thorough and efficient audits as a result. The table below represents the largest United States and Canada accounting firms outside of the Top 100 Accounting Firms (per Inside Public Accounting newsletter) ranked by the fee volume of audits and other work performed for publicly-owned companies traded on a United States stock exchange.
