In the spirit of a Forensic Financial Analysis, you should analyze the firm’s financial statements and policies as a risk management exercise for the benefit of the company CEO. Look for any “bodies” buried in the statements and associated notes, as well as the types of information disclosed to the public (e.g., pro forma earnings). The goal here is to identify any areas where the firm is vulnerable to SEC action (fraud or otherwise) and report these to the CEO as a preemptive risk mitigation action. The required text Financial Shenanigans should be used as a reference to guide your approach in this area.
