I had the opportunity to work with an ambitious team dedicated to scaling their business and venturing into new industries by gaining access to equity financing. I worked cohesively with the Client and its third-party auditors and attorneys to solve unique and unforeseen challenges to complete a business combination via reverse takeover and become publicly traded on the Canadian Securities Exchange.
To complete the transaction, we produced the company’s first set of audited annual financial statements and subsequent interim filings. In addition, I worked with the client to design, build and implement a completely new budgeting and forecasting process. This process allows them to provide forward-looking guidance during earning release calls, create better financial models to share with potential investors and creditors and evaluate new prospective business deals.
Collaborating and overcoming daily obstacles to achieve the company’s ultimate goals was deeply satisfying and enriching.
