Silicon Valley’s Fastest Growing Companies Choose Armanino

50% of Last Dozen Silicon Valley IPOs Work with California’s Largest Accounting and Business Consulting Firm

SAN RAMON, CA (November 12, 2013) – ArmaninoLLP, the largest independent accounting and business consulting firm in California and the 29th largest firm in the United States, provides IPO Readiness, SOX compliance and a variety of financial and tax consulting services to 9 of the last 18 Silicon Valley companies to file for IPO or go public.

“Rocket Fuel relies on Armanino for everything from IT project management, accounting and tax consulting. Their experienced consultants walked us through the complexities with Sarbanes Oxley (SOX) laws and prepared us prior to going public,” said Peter Bardwick, CFO of Rocket Fuel, which provides a real-time digital advertising platform.

Fast-growing companies have multiple, high-priority reporting and financial operations needs and Armanino’s consultants have real world experience as former CFOs in public companies.

“Leading, growth-oriented companies continue to pick Armanino because our consultants know how to guide them through the demands that go along with an IPO,” says Tom Mescall, Partner-in-Charge of Consulting for Armanino. “We are a trusted business partner to CFOs, CEOs and Board Members that want to ensure the IPO preparedness process goes smoothly.”

Armanino provides a broad range of consulting services, including IPO preparedness, S-1 preparation, SOX compliance, business continuity planning, equity accounting, valuations, SEC reporting, outsourced accounting, implementation of ERP, CRM, business intelligence, budgeting and forecasting, and portal solutions, and tax consulting.

“As a recently public company, Marketo will need to bring its systems and internal controls into SOX compliance for fiscal 2014 and we chose Armanino to partner with us on this critical business process,” said Brian Kinion, VP of Finance at Marketo, Inc., which began trading on Nasdaq in May 2013. Marketo provides cloud-based marketing software platform that enables organizations to engage in modern relationship marketing.
