Marcum Bernstein & Pinchuk LLP Draws Leading Chinese Executives at SEC/FASB Update Seminars

New York, January 30, 2013 – Marcum Bernstein & Pinchuk, has successfully completed a series of training seminars on 2012 SEC/FASB updates held at three cities in China. Senior Partners at Marcum shared their insight on key technical accounting standards from the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) and disclosure priorities of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The seminars gathered leading financial executives from over thirty five U.S.- listed Chinese companies including several multinational corporations with over $1 billion in market capitalization to those in the micro and small-cap arena.

The 2012 SEC/FASB update seminar series was conducted over a three day period at leading financial hubs throughout China including Guangzhou, Beijing and Shanghai. The seminars were offered free of charge to qualified executives, and proved to be extremely popular with each seminar reaching maximum capacity.

“Over the years we’ve made an enormous investment with making sure our staff in China is highly knowledgeable about all of the latest developments in SEC disclosure and new FASB accounting and reporting standards. These seminars offer an opportunity to learn from Marcum’s most senior technical experts and experienced public company accountants in a highly interactive environment,” said Drew Bernstein, co-managing partner of Marcum Bernstein & Pinchuk.

“This year we decided to open it up to senior executives from U.S.- listed Chinese companies who want to make sure they are up to speed with the most important issues facing U.S.- listed Chinese companies as they prepare their year-end financial statements and reports. We were extremely thrilled to have leading executives from some of the largest U.S.-listed public companies in China attend and we were very pleased at the overwhelming interest and the range of informed questions and dialogue among the attendees. After the immense success of this year’s seminar series, we look forward to organizing regular training events in the future.”

Topics covered by the seminars included: Frequent SEC comment areas, preparation of pro forma financial information, remarks from senior SEC and FASB officials, segment reporting, SEC Enforcement Action Panel, and securities, regulatory and compliance issues for smaller companies.
