Access to Capital Markets
BDO is well prepared to assist companies with access to capital markets, both in the United States and worldwide. We currently serve over 300 domestic publicly traded clients and more than 100 international publicly traded entities. We have assisted many of these entities not only with their ongoing SEC filings, but also with their public offerings. We have also assisted these and many other clients with private placements.
SEC–registered entities find that the sheer volume of the SEC's rules and its numerous unpublished administrative positions give rise to many complex issues and questions. BDO has committed substantial resources to help our clients find workable solutions to those complex problems and to ensure timely and proper filings.
Our National SEC Department maintains a constructive working relationship with the SEC staff, closely monitoring changes in reporting requirements and keeping engagement personnel informed of changes. The department also devotes significant personal attention to client filings to ensure that clients receive the benefits of their extensive experience and knowledge.
From 2006 through today, BDO participated in 100 public and private offerings. Proceeds from these offerings ranged from $14 million to $838 million. Thirty-one of these offerings were IPOs of which the total proceeds were over $4 billion. We gave each one the same meticulous attention. Our ability to work with both small regional and major underwriters has resulted in measurable success.
Global Offerings and Multi-National Clients
BDO is the U.S. Member Firm of BDO International Limited, the 5th largest accounting and consulting network in the world.

Through our strong global network, we can help companies around the world bridge the gap between U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), and local statutory accounting requirements.
