Charles York

VP Finance & Accounting

“When we started this process we were told very clearly by Deloitte, the underwriters, and the lawyers that getting on-file today was an extremely (overly) aggressive goal.  The fact that we made it is very much due to the excellent and hard work that you have done, and I am hugely appreciative of your efforts.”

Eric J. Rey
President and CEO

“Connor Group was instrumental in Hortonworks being able to meet an aggressive IPO timeline. The work performed around optimizing the financial close process and associated controls framework was top-notch and accelerated our ability to comply with new public reporting requirements.  Their approach is well organized, articulated and measured all of which led to an incredible result.  Their expertise in the areas of technical accounting and ability to get up to speed on the complexities of an open source business model were a testament to the quality and dedication of the team.  The transition from private to public company within 3 1/2 years since our founding could not have been accomplished without the guidance and thoughtful assistance provided by members of the Connor Team.”

Scott Davidson
CFO, Hortonworks

“Connor Group’s team was an instrumental partner in our IPO preparation and execution. They helped us deliver on some of the more complex and time consuming areas of the IPO process such as technical accounting issue resolution, audit assistance, drafting key sections of our Form S-1 and SEC comment letter responses.   They worked seamlessly with our external auditors, bankers and attorneys through the IPO process to deliver quality results in a time frame we could not have done without them.  I highly recommend the IPO services of Connor Group.”
