Quality Of Earnings / Investment Analysis

At Durkin Group, we know that some companies find creative ways to report earnings, or worse, fail to properly record losses or expenses when preparing financial statements. For investors to rely on reported operating cash flow and EBITDA figures they must have a thorough understanding of a potential acquisition target or existing portfolio company’s accounting procedures as well as their method for documenting changes in revenues, expenses, and balance sheet accounts.

Our team of professionals asks the difficult questions to gain an understanding of the company’s accounting processes and tests the strength of the balance sheet and quality of earnings.
