New York City, NY - Marcum LLP, a top national accounting and advisory services firm, led the accounting industry in most net new SEC clients in the fourth quarter of 2015, according to data from Audit Analytics. With a net gain of six new SEC clients, Marcum was also the only non-"Big Four" national accounting firm to achieve growth in the October-December period. In addition, Marcum was the only accounting firm in the U.S. to register four consecutive quarters of growth in 2015, ending the year with 15 net new SEC clients.

"2015 was a tremendous year for our SEC Services Practice, as Marcum continued to benefit from the trust our clients place in our experience and capabilities, and our deep commitment to superior service," said David C. Bukzin, partner-in-charge of Marcum's SEC Services Practice Group. "Furthermore, we believe that our increased market share is a reflection of how we are viewed by the investing community."

Marcum's SEC Services Practice is nationally recognized as the innovator of the annual Marcum MicroCap Conference. In 2016, the conference will be held June 1-2 at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in New York City.

The Marcum MicroCap Conference is dedicated to providing a forum where publicly traded companies with less than $500 million in market capitalization can network with the investment community. The 2016 conference will be two full days, with feature presentations by CEOs and CFOs from seven principal industry sectors, expert panels moderated by industry leaders, and the opportunity for investors to meet one-on-one with management of presenting companies.
