Since January 17, 2012 the audit branch of Lentink has obtained a registration with the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board – PCAOB. This places Lentink Audit under the supervision of this American regulator, allowing it to perform work for American companies subject to auditing requirements. Lentink is currently already regularly involved with such clients.
The registration was obtained after the Dutch regulator, the Netherlands Authority for the Financial Markets (AFM), and the PCAOB had reached agreement on the way in which data exchange by organizations supervised by the AFM should take place with the PCAOB.
4. Corporate finance
By corporate finance activities we mean
– valuations of companies, shareholdings and economic claims

– shareholder disputes
– relaunch scenarios
– finding investors and/or financiers
– sale preparation in the tax, legal and financial field
