Irvine-based Haskell and White, an independently owned accounting, auditing and tax consulting firm, held a roundtable discussion on Sept. 8 to address the Security and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) oversight and compliance programs. The meeting featured insights from Ronald Kiima, former Assistant Chief Accountant with the SEC’s Division of Corporate Finance. The firm plans to host more workshops in December with roundtable sessions in Costa Mesa and San Diego.
“Navigating the SEC’s review process requires a comprehensive understanding of what triggers these reviews and how to adequately prepare for them,” said Wayne Pinnell, managing partner of Haskell & White. “This discussion provided public companies with the necessary tools to anticipate the review process, avoid costly amendments and effectively resolve inquiries and objections.”
Haskell and Whit’s SEC Roundtable Series, launched in 2008, was designed to keep financial executives of Southern California public and private companies up to date on developments at the SEC and emerging trends in financial reporting. Key points discussed in the presentation include mandatory and discretionary review triggers, full reviews versus limited scope reviews and other issues.
“Haskell and White maintains a strong commitment to the Southern California business community, and our SEC Roundtable Series is one example of the firm’s dedicated effort to support the community of financial executives by providing a forum for networking and presenting information on current topics of interest,” said Pinnell.
