Which Big 4 Firm Had the Most IPO Audit Clients In Q3 2019?

The firm that puts the EY in cringEworthY training seminars for women audited the most initial public offerings in the third quarter, according to a new analysis from Audit Analytics.

EY was the auditor of the second-highest IPO of the third quarter in terms of proceeds, which was Peloton at $1.16 billion raised.

The Big 4 audited 54.7% of the IPO market in the third quarter, according to Audit Analytics.
