CohnReznick Is Probably Better at Audits Than You, Per PCAOB Inspection Report

Yesterday, we shared McGladrey's not-all-that-bad inspection report results. Now, it's time to crown a world champion audit firm…

CohnReznick!

The words every audit firm wants to hear from the PCAOB:

The inspection procedures included a review of aspects of the Firm's auditing of financial statements of 11 issuers. This review did not identify any audit performance issues that, in the inspection team's view, resulted in the Firm failing to obtain sufficient appropriate audit evidence to support its opinion on the issuer's financial statements or internal control over financial reporting ("ICFR").

BAZINGA!

Note this is a 2013 report so we can't compare it to our ongoing 2012 inspection report tally with Deloitte at 25% and Grant Thornton pulling up the rear at 65%.
