The rapidly changing social, economic, and environmental landscape inspires hyper-accelerated innovation in the technology and new media industry. Whether you’re creating the next product connected to the Internet of Things, pursuing the frontier of artificial intelligence, or changing how people purchase products and services, competition is fierce. Only companies with sustainable growth potential and forward thinking strategies will attract investment — and continue to thrive. With a strong track record in the sector, CohnReznick helps private, public, and venture and private equity-backed companies meet the rising expectations of investors, build a solid financial function, and improve operating performance.
CohnReznick professionals know the challenges of building and operating a business, bringing ideas to market, and attracting the growth capital they need to move forward.
EMERGING TECHNOLOGY AND MEDIA EXPERIENCE
Technology is a diverse industry that is continually expanding. CohnReznick is a first mover. From the early days to newly-formed paradigms, we have been at the forefront in serving a wide array of technology sectors like software, cloud, mobility and data analytics.
SPANNING THE COMPANY LIFE CYCLE
Our services are scalable and designed to support the industry spectrum – from start-ups to established companies – in raising capital, pursuing a merger or acquisition, going public, or planning an exit.
To best serve the complex business needs of the industry, our specialized Technology Industry Practice is led by CohnReznick partners who have extensive technology industry experience. As active participants in all engagements, they have specific knowledge in the challenges associated with sustaining growth and accessing capital.
We are active participants in technology trade associations and professional organizations and leverage our trusted, long-standing industry relationships to better serve our clients. We regularly publish insights and articles on market trends in the industry and are sought out for our commentary on the financial outlook of a variety of segments within the industry.
CohnReznick’s integrated accounting, tax, and advisory capabilities are essential to technology and new media companies as they start up, develop proof-of-concept, attract investment, mature, and evolve. We offer services designed specifically for the industry:
INNOVATIVE DIGITAL SOLUTIONS
A growing number of technology companies have difficulty monetizing their offerings and establishing meaningful market share. CohnReznick provides digital innovation, data analytics, cybersecurity and other advisory services to improve business and financial performance. These services help companies boost profitability and attract investment.
M&A AND CAPITAL TRANSACTION SUPPORT
Because technology companies are often on a more aggressive growth trajectory than other businesses, we help them strengthen their businesses in advance of a deal or capital transaction. Whether on the buy or sell side, we guide technology companies through each phase of the deal process – from strategic assessment of targets through structuring, due diligence, valuation, and integration.
SPECIALIZED TAX SERVICES
As technology companies grow, the tax consequences for these companies – and their founders – typically grow as well. CohnReznick provides businesses and entrepreneurs with a range of tax services to maintain compliance and minimize obligations. From nexus studies and other state and local tax services, to employing research & development and similar tax credits, to strategic tax structuring for qualified small business stock( QSBS), we help technology company owners and their businesses keep more of the income they generate through responsible, comprehensive tax planning.
