  • Move to faster group reporting
    Move to faster group reporting Unit4 Partner Millennium Consulting Apr 26 2017 9:00 am UTC 75 mins
    As organisations expand through growth or acquisition, it can be increasingly time consuming to keep using MS Excel for consolidated group reporting. Due to the workload involved in collating and checking multiple spreadsheets, group reporting can’t be done very frequently, is prone to errors and leaves little time for the group finance team to provide suitable analysis and commentary.
    This session will provide an overview of how organisations have managed to free up time within the group finance function for more value-added activities, by switching from spreadsheets to using a specialist application designed for the task.

    • US IPO activity (sectors, VC- and PE-backed companies, foreign private issuer activity, syndicate structures);
    • Disclosure and governance trends among IPO issuers;
    • Dual track processes and the legal and business considerations;
