Immediately after our IPO, Horizon Advisors helped us establish our SOX control environment and get up to speed quickly. This set us up for a successful 404b SOX audit, exceeding our big 4 external auditors' expectations. Horizon Advisors established a sound foundation for all future years and continues to support our internal audit function, delivering big 4 quality results at competitive pricing.
We engaged Horizon Advisors to lead and manage our financial reporting process for our Q2 10-Q filing. After working with a big 4 firm during our Q1 filing, we found Horizon Advisors to deliver a much better overall experience meeting all of our requested objectives efficiently, effectively, and at the highest standards. They pride themselves in providing value. This is why we continue to engage them for ongoing support
