Our partners at Armanino cover how to prepare your stock plan to be audit-ready all year long, and IPO-ready well before the IPO.



Nothing is worse than having to respond to significant audit questions around stock option accounting right in the middle of an audit or an S-1 filing. Stock option plans can be tricky and complex. If not managed correctly, a stock option plan can be full of accounting gotcha's that can turn into expensive penalties, unnecessary audit adjustments, added stress during filings, and material weaknesses.

After listening to this webcast, you will be able to:

  • Recognize many of the risks and penalties involved in stock option accounting
  • Utilize an audit readiness checklist
  • Identify the pitfalls of managing employee stock plans by spreadsheet and systems that are not public-company ready

Your privacy is very important to us.
