- GAAP vs. Non-GAAP: The SEC has been clamping down on public company use of Non-GAAP metrics in financial reporting. How does this affect both micro and small cap companies?
- Leases as Liabilities: Since leases are real contractual obligations requiring the use of cash, regulators have been questioning whether the financial position of a company could be accurate without inclusion of these liabilities. Most affected: companies that have significant real estate leases in multi-locations such as restaurants, retail stores and office units.
