Riveron manages carve-out and IPO readiness for new company
A €30 billion German cement and aggregates company chose to divest its non-core building products business line, Lehigh Hanson. The Company engaged Riveron to assist with a dual-track divestiture, including carve-out and conversion from IFRS to US GAAP, subsequent public registration and liaison of the dual-track sale process for the Company’s negotiations with private equity investors. We managed the separation strategy to stand up the carved-out entity, assisted with SOX readiness, provided technical guidance, and produced SEC-compliant financial statements. Ultimately, Riveron publicly filed the Company’s registration statement with the SEC on an aggressive timeline and assisted with the sale of the Company at a favorable price.
Riveron implements scalable financial system for carved-out entity
A $200 million payment processing solutions provider was carved-out of its parent entity, a $20 billion international, publicly-traded company. Riveron was initially engaged to prepare historical carve-out financial statements and provide technical accounting and audit support. Our team was then asked to ensure the carved-out entity could successfully operate as a standalone business with a new, high-functioning finance and accounting department. To achieve this goal, we successfully implemented NetSuite, developed scalable business processes and provided visibility into financial performance, KPIs and company direction for all stakeholders.
Riveron performs financial due diligence and integration assessment supporting the lifecycle of an acquisition
NexusTek, a Denver based managed IT company, needed help executing against a balanced growth strategy which included organic platform growth and an ambitious acquisition and integration program. To support their rapid growth, Riveron was asked to perform both financial due diligence and an order-to-cash integration assessment in response to NexusTek’s largest acquisition to date. Riveron partnered with both entities to deliver a Quality of Earnings report, as well as recommendations on software selection and process improvement to integrate the acquisition into an improved order-to-cash function.
News & Insights
Companies are increasingly turning to special purpose acquisition companies, commonly known as SPACs, as an attractive alternative to access capital markets. While this path is not new, its popularity has recently been skyrocketing. In fact, in 2018, SPACs had their best year ever in terms of deal value and their highest volume since 2007, with 46 initial public offerings (IPOs) raising nearly $10 billion. This number is projected to rise in 2019, with 15 SPACs raising $3 billion in Q1 alone. Historically, these transactions were viewed by many as risky since they often involved dormant shell entities with unknown or undisclosed issues. However, the recent popularity of newly-formed active SPAC mergers has reduced the perceived risk profile for these transactions and made them more inviting. But as with any new trend, companies need to be aware of the complexities and potential pitfalls before jumping on board.
Last week, Riveron sponsored OneStream’s Splash conference, which was held in New Orleans, Louisiana. This annual event convened more than 1,100 finance and industry representatives for three days of networking and learning best practice implementation techniques from the software developers and existing clients. The Riveron team heard from existing OneStream customers about the variety of OneStream use cases, prospective clients on how to potentially address their existing challenges and OneStream developers on the evolving product roadmap. Here are our key takeaways from Splash 2019.
The result of simplification creates less subjectivity for tax departments, advisors and practitioners. While creating many opportunities for experienced tax professionals to excel, this effect, in combination with advancing technologies like Artificial Intelligence, automates routine processes that may ultimately replace new tax associates’ daily tasks. So where does that leave tax practices and their entry level associates?
