PODCAST: How a CPA helps buyers in M&A

October 2, 2018

Matthew Wright, Audit Senior Manager at the firm, recorded a thought leadership podcast with the Portland Business Journal. Wright plays a pivotal role in our mergers & acquisitions team, and he spoke about the M&A process, a CPA’s role in that process, and some of the challenges that buyers face. Here are some highlights:

  • “Geffen Mesher discovered almost $1 million of inventory missing and the target had no idea where that inventory was.”
  • “I help identify key transaction issues and other possible issues which might arise pose-transaction.”
  • “Having a team of professional advisors is important for those entering into M&A transactions on both sides of the equation. A CPA firm can be an integral partner in this process.”
