SAN RAMON, Calif., Aug. 12, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Armanino LLP (www.armaninollp.com), the largest independent accounting and business consulting firm based in California, announced that they worked alongside lead acid battery recycler Aqua Metals (Nasdaq:AQMS) as the independent auditor of record during their recent IPO.
"We are honored that Aqua Metals has joined the many public companies who trust Armanino with their financial statement audits," said Matthew Perreault, partner and head of Armanino's Technology and SEC Audit Practice. "It's also a great opportunity to work with a company that is looking to bring jobs back to the US with a clean 'green' technology-based solution."
Armanino has served more than 100 public companies over the last 20 years, with expertise in four distinct areas: financial statement audits, Sarbanes-Oxley internal control documentation and testing, tax compliance and planning, and a variety of consulting and software solutions. Armanino fields a powerful team of audit, tax and consulting professionals who formerly served as key members of Big Four practices.
"Armanino has been a trusted partner throughout our IPO process," said Thomas Murphy, chief financial officer and co-founder of Aqua Metals, "which gave us confidence we wouldn't have any last minute surprises as we went through the SEC filing and review process."
Aqua Metals will retain Armanino as their independent auditor of record.
