Anders rose 33 spots on the Top 200 Accounting Firms List from 2012 to 2013. The jump is largely due to the January 1, 2013 merger of Anders Minkler & Diehl LLP and Huber, Ring, Helm & Co., P.C. The Platt Group, publishers of INSIDE Public Accounting (IPA), made the announcement.
In this fourth annual ranking of Beyond the IPA 100, this list picks up where the IPA 100 left off, and identifies the largest firms in the nation ranking from No. 101 to No. 200. The firm made its debut on the list in 2011, coming in at 159; last year climbing two spots to 157.
For the most recent fiscal year, IPA 200 firms range in size from $14 million to $30 million, and from 60 to 200 staff. As a group, they account for over 11,000 staff across 300 offices, generate $2 billion in revenues.
According to the IPA, “The Top 200 averaged 4.3% top-line growth, and 3.7% growth in the bottom line. A full 20% of the IPA 200 derives more than 30% of revenues from non-traditional services, providing powerful and profitable niches for these firms.
In addition, similar to their IPA 100 peers, the IPA 200 are also engaged in acquisitions to grow in size, scope and capability, with over 25 mergers reported for the group last year, pulling over 400 staff and $40 million more to the aggregate numbers of the group,”
More than 500 firms participated in the IPA annual Survey and Analysis of Firms this year, along with many CPA firm associations contributing to the search to identify the IPA 200.
