Best way to integrate a non-public acquired with a public 2323

  • Hi,
    I wonder if anyone can offer some advice on how to integrate a company we acquired (non-public, so not SOX compliant) within our public entity.
    I feel so much resistance from the part of the acquired entity, together with blank looks. How do we make them understand the importance? How do we plan the integration without overloading them with additional work?
    Thanks for any and all input.

  • Hi,
    The Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) developed a good document that outlines some of the benefits of compliance with the requirements in the Sarbanes-Oxley Act.
    The document may be found at:
    www dot
    Of course, much has been written on this subject and you will find that anyone interested has an opinion for or against SOX so I will not ‘color’ this reply with my personal views.
    Hope this helps,
