Sandy Springs-based Habif, Arogeti & Wynne, LLP, one of the country’s top-100 CPA firms, has completed the multi-million-dollar acquisition of Atlanta-based Miller Ray Houser & Stewart, LLP, a CPA firm offering a broad range of traditional audit and tax services.
In addition to a staff of 25 and office space at 99 West Paces Ferry Road, Habif, Arogeti & Wynne (HA&W) acquired an active client roster of approximately 2000 organizations and executives as well as more depth of experience with public companies.
All MRHS staff will eventually transition to the HA&W offices at the Glenridge Highlands location in Sandy Springs.
“Miller Ray Houser & Stewart (MRHS) is a natural fit for us, from both a business and cultural standpoint,” said Dan Simms, managing partner, HA&W. He said this will allow HA&W “to expand into additional markets with an eye on becoming the leading regulatory firm in Atlanta.”
MRHS offers a broad range of traditional audit and tax services, primarily to small and mid-market companies and their executives. The company is also very active in providing valuation services, litigation support and forensic accounting services. The MRHS client base includes SEC-registered companies, law firms, medical practices, commercial and residential real estate developers, property and casualty insurance companies, not-for-profit organizations, manufacturing and distribution, high net-worth individuals, estate and trusts and family limited partnerships.
“We are bringing together two companies with similar business philosophies and complementary industry skills and expertise,” said Wayne E. Stewart, managing partner, MRHS. “Through this transition, it will be ‘business as usual.’ We look forward to introducing our clients to the expanded capabilities that HA&W will now offer.”
HA&W’s more than 230 professionals provide financial solutions to more than 7,000 clients in a variety of industries.
