We are Grant Thornton

Welcome to Status Go.

In 2017, Grant Thornton LLP continued our rise. In stark contrast to a world of “status quo,” we are ready to deliver “Status Go.”

We’re pushing forward aggressively on our culture journey, winning top rankings on lists across the profession. Our results on quality keep getting better, with improvements on almost every measure. We’re accelerating our work to develop new capabilities, such as advanced data analytics, artificial intelligence, robotics and blockchain. Our clients are highly satisfied with our performance, giving us an average satisfaction rating of greater than nine on a 10-point scale.

In the first section of this report, we show what we are doing to help our clients succeed and thrive, through a series of client stories featuring The Duke Endowment, Caesars Entertainment, Community Health Network and The Meet Group.

In the second section, we describe how we do our work and run our business, exploring our deep commitment to a healthy, high-performance culture; quality, the foundation for all we do; and energetic support for the communities in which we do business.

Each of these areas is an important part of the firm we’re building at Grant Thornton — what we often refer to as “the firm of the future.” This is a firm in which extraordinary people come together to deliver to clients a culture of quality, innovation and collaboration. This is Status Go!

Client success

We serve clients of all sizes and in all industries, but there is one thing they all have in common: They work with a professional services firm that listens closely and executes with speed and quality.

“Why would we use another provider when Grant Thornton understands the full picture?”

Karen Rogers, CFO and Treasurer
The Duke Endowment

Running one of the country’s largest private foundations isn’t easy — but specialists with know-how in multiple areas can help.

Since 1924, The Duke Endowment has worked to help people and strengthen communities in the Carolinas by nurturing children, promoting health, educating minds and enriching spirits. With assets of $3.37 billion, the Endowment is one of the nation's largest 501(c)(3) private foundations.

With a relatively small staff administering one of the largest private foundations in the U.S., The Duke Endowment needs advice and assistance from a team of specialists who can help with a wide variety of sophisticated solutions.

“Fulfilling our mission is always job one,” says CFO and Treasurer Karen Rogers. “That’s why we need to work with someone who knows us and understands our special situations, and can assist us with everything from tax compliance to audit services to compensation and benefits analysis, as part of a total package of solutions.”

For more than a decade, we have served The Duke Endowment as its tax preparer and auditor. Our dedicated team of professionals brings their deep technical experience to bear on the complex needs of a major private foundation with vast programming commitments and highly specialized staff members.

Over time, the Endowment has come to rely on our services for more. We have a well-earned reputation for understanding the needs of not-for-profit organizations, offering services touching many aspects of their operations.

“We provide our clients with practical insights and recommendations, high-quality service with measurable results, and critical information about relevant industry trends,” says Sharon Whittle, Tax partner, and a lead on the team serving The Duke Endowment. “When we support our clients to deliver on their missions, we deliver on ours.”

Our team’s comprehensive services have enabled The Duke Endowment to avoid fragmented service with numerous providers. “We’re a relatively small team at the Endowment,” says Rogers. “The specialized knowledge that Sharon and the team possess is invaluable. Their support has enabled us to make better decisions and do a better job, time and time again."

“You punch above your weight class.”

Mike Fath, Vice President and Chief Procurement Officer
Caesars Entertainment

Caesars needed a fresh start and a new professional services provider. In Grant Thornton, it found both.

Caesars, one of the world’s largest casino-entertainment companies, is working to transform their organization and redefine their brand with a focus on the millennial market and the use of advanced technology throughout the business.

With an inspiring vision for how to set new standards for the casino/gaming, entertainment and hospitality industry, Caesars’ leadership team needed to reimagine and reengineer every part of their business, from corporate structure and real estate strategies to operations and customer service. They needed a professional services team that could deliver broad and deep capabilities with speed, and a strong cultural fit.

"During the request for proposal for internal audit work I learned about how you measure your success — it is tied to client service. That is a differentiator between Grant Thornton and the big firms."

Troy Vanke, Chief Accounting Officer, Caesars Acquisition Company and Caesars Interactive Entertainment

Our relationship began with an internal audit for Sarbanes-Oxley compliance, for which we deployed a global team of 26 professionals within the first ten days. Superior execution and a focus on quality and flexibility won the clients’ confidence, leading them to look to us for help with a broad range of additional needs.

Today, Grant Thornton has expanded our work with Caesars to include Oracle technology implementations for accounting and human resources; financial accounting audit; forensics and fraud prevention consulting; cost segregation studies for tax; and transaction assistance with bankruptcy consultation and fresh start accounting.

“They honestly care that we are successful, which is really important for me. They want to get across the finish line with me.”

Edward Aleman, Vice President, Business Services

Ultimately, successful execution required collaboration from Grant Thornton teams across all three of our major services (Audit, Tax and Advisory); many of our industry-focused teams, including real estate, construction, real estate investment trusts, hospitality, gaming, restaurants, food and beverage, and technology; and highly innovative and specialized capabilities, such as data analytics and cognitive artificial intelligence.

“You punch above your weight class. Somehow you are able to get partners to focus on solving a problem without getting individual performance metrics in the way. In your culture you are able to make that work and it is pretty impressive.”

Mike Fath, Vice President and Chief Procurement Officer

Coming out of its restructuring, Caesars will have a market value of about $20 billion, and is already reaping the rewards of renewed investment in what CEO Mark Frissora describes as “hundreds of initiatives to enhance operational efficiency, guest experiences and employee engagement through technology-driven innovation and process improvement.” Our team is helping Caesars execute many of those initiatives — and looks forward to Caesars' continued rise in the future.

“Because of you we are remarkably better. If I need to get something done, I need to get Grant Thornton involved.”

Matt Krystofiak, Senior Vice President, Human Resources

Culture sync is key

Ramping up such a broad and deep business relationship so fast required a strong cultural fit. We knew we had one with Caesars right off the bat.

Both firms have been on a similar cultural transformation journey, with closely matched values and behavioral norms that enabled close collaboration even during intense, disruptive and fast-moving business initiatives.

One way our cultures align is our commitment to giving back to our communities. Recently, our professionals joined Caesars employees for a daylong charity event to support Three Square, a non-profit organization, and their BackPack for Kids program. The teams spent the day assembling backpacks with ready-to-eat meals for at-risk kids in southern Nevada.

"The team did an amazing job … a successful implementation that was on time and on budget."

Holly Millard, SVP Finance
Community Health Network

When Community Health Network needed transformational change, Grant Thornton customized a system for the future.

After Indianapolis-based Community Health Network expanded through multiple mergers, acquisitions and strategic alliances, it needed to fundamentally unify its finance system to position itself for future growth, and bring organizational performance to a higher level.

“We were spending more time entering and formatting data than analyzing what was driving performance,” said Holly Millard, Community’s senior vice president of Finance. “It could take three months to transform data into insight. By then, it was too late to turn insight into action.”

The Grant Thornton team customized an integrated approach to financial reporting and supply chain management with experienced project managers and specialists leading the way, ensuring that quality of care was maintained and buy-in was strong across the organization. Further, the “whole system” transformation, instead of incremental change, provided tremendous value to the organization, while bringing top professionals to the table. Overhauling Community Health’s financial and supply systems was only possible through our team’s strong focus on change and project management.

“I don’t believe it’s possible to overcommunicate or overtrain for a transition like this,” said Bruce Allen, Community’s program director. “But in the end, our transitions went smoothly, and the new systems are being well-accepted.”

The results were transformational, as greatly improved financial reporting and supply chain processes make it far easier for leaders to quickly gather the right insights from their data across the network’s entire system.

Today, Community Health Network is ready for any new challenge it encounters, with renewed flexibility and adaptability in its processes, because meaningful performance information is finally visible. Budgeting and planning also are far more effective with the right data in leaders’ hands.

Throughout the engagement, Millard knew our team had her back, and would do whatever was needed to ensure success. “Their professionalism and commitment to implementation was superior,” Millard said. “They were committed to not only getting the technology installed, but ensuring we had a usable product upon go-live.”

“We’re continually impressed by the level of experience and responsiveness from each and every person we’ve met.”

David Clark, CFO
The Meet Group

The Meet Group had their eye on a new European partner. We helped make the match.

The Meet Group is a portfolio of mobile meeting applications whose U.S. brands include Meet Me, Skout, Tagged and Hi5. The firm was looking to acquire Lovoo, the German firm behind the most downloaded dating app in Germany, Switzerland and Austria combined. Grant Thornton, which had provided The Meet Group with consulting services for several years, helped the two forge a strong and lasting connection.

Executives at The Meet Group had executed two similarly-sized acquisitions in the past year, but their deal with Lovoo would be larger and much more complex, given its international nature.

The firm’s leaders knew they needed to rely on a provider with a wide range of knowledge and experience in M&A due diligence and post-closing integration — and that could deliver quality service both in the U.S. and in Germany.

The Grant Thornton International Ltd organization of 39 member firms serves clients in 130 countries around the world, so the team is well-positioned to help companies meet global business challenges. For The Meet Group, our U.S. team collaborated with colleagues at Warth & Klein Grant Thornton in Germany to assemble a team of the right professionals to help ensure success for the acquisition and integration of Lovoo.

Dave Maturo
Director, Business Development, Grant Thornton

David Clark
CFO, The Meet Group

The team began with a tight focus on financial and tax diligence. New U.S. revenue recognition standards meant the team gave special attention to ensuring that the new combined firm’s revenues would be recognized and consolidated to comply with the SEC.

The results were transformational, as greatly improved financial reporting and supply chain processes make it far easier for leaders to quickly gather the right insights from their data across the network’s entire system.

The Meet Group’s leadership team had originally looked to Grant Thornton only for traditional finance and tax diligence. But our engagement team listened closely to understand the many challenges related to this acquisition, and suggested that we also could provide significant value by expanding our focus to include due diligence work in other areas, including cybersecurity, data privacy, human capital, fraud risk and tax structuring. The clients agreed, and were very pleased with our more comprehensive approach.

Today, our relationship continues to grow, with the potential to add merger integration and other business consulting services in the future.

“By spending time listening to the client’s story, we were able to expand the scope of our work by delivering capabilities they didn’t know we had. Collaboration and communication made the client feel like we were all in sync together.”

Michael Finkelstein, Senior Manager
Advisory Services

“We brought focused insights to The Meet Group team and helped structure the deal to maximize value for them over the next decade.”

New and emerging capabilities

To help our clients move into the future with confidence, we are developing new capabilities to meet their needs and overcome their challenges. In this sampling of emerging capabilities, see where Status Go is taking clients next.

Accounting Advisory

This practice, which helps solve complex accounting issues, assists many clients with special challenges. Our professionals have deep knowledge in technical accounting, and are skilled in implementation of critical projects across organizations.

Often, this practice brings together professionals from all three of the firm’s service lines in order to best serve the needs of clients. We’ve performed rollouts of the new revenue recognition and lease accounting standards, using this approach.

The “one firm” approach we use to offer these customized solutions helps us bring the highest resources to each engagement, and provide an outstanding integrated service offering.

Lumen: Audit Data Analytics

Our commitment to analytics means we not only use best-in-class tools to develop deeper business insights for our clients, but we also match the right people to an engagement, and ask the right questions to provide greater understanding. It also means offering the most innovative tools and strategies at all phases of an audit.

We draw on proprietary algorithms and advanced routines to highlight risk areas. Our use of risk profiling, data ingestion tools, and other analyses produces greater precision in our audits.

Lumen enables us to highlight complex data patterns that aren’t otherwise visible, improve audit quality and offer deeper insights.

Public Policy

Uncertainty in Washington can translate into uncertainty for businesses. Our Public Policy team, and Washington National Tax Office, stay ahead of the news, enabling clients to position their businesses for future success.

Throughout 2017, Grant Thornton hosted a series of newsletters, webcasts and in-person events focused on the possibility of tax reform, together with Bloomberg BNA. These offerings gave clients access to the latest insight and analysis from thought leaders and insiders.

Quality

We’re committed to delivering exceptional quality and seeing continuous improvement in this area. But quality means more to us than any one statistic. Quality remains the foundation of all we do in our firm. It’s tied to excellence, one of our firm’s core values, and drives all our processes and protocols.

Culture

Our high-performance culture helped us earn top rankings in multiple national and local award programs in the past year, including spots on the Dallas Business Journal and Crain’s Chicago Business annual “Best Places to Work” lists.

This is our second year in a row on the list in our headquarters city, which is based on survey results received from more than 14,000 employees at Chicago-area companies. Grant Thornton is featured as the top public accounting firm on the list for our continued commitment to flexibility, collaboration and coaching.

Since its debut in the U.S. in 2015, Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day has gained overwhelming support as a fundraiser aimed at fighting childhood poverty and ensuring childhood safety, education and health. Supported by 17 of our clients, this campaign is in direct alignment with the first four goals of IMPACT2030: No Poverty; Zero Hunger; Good Health and Well-Being; and Quality Education — a perfect match with the Red Nose Day goals.
CEO Mike McGuire gets into the Red Nose Day spirit.
Grant Thornton colleagues participated by donning red noses and posting photos on social media using hashtags #RedNoseDay and #NosesOn. It was a fun way to demonstrate support of our clients and bring awareness to IMPACT2030 and the Global Goals.

At the Chicago Council on Global Affairs 2017 Forum, we engaged our clients and community influencers with new ideas about volunteerism and sustainability. More than 30 C-suite and civic leaders attended an exclusive reception that included a fireside chat focused on how cities can advance the Global Goals by harnessing the power of corporate volunteers for transformational change.
This past year we became a founding partner of IMPACT2030, a private sector-led initiative, in collaboration with the United Nations and other stakeholders, helping to leverage human capital investments through employee volunteer programs to address the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, also known as the Global Goals.

Hurricane Relief

Our employees rallied together to quickly help colleagues affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

On the heels of the devastating effects of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, we rallied together to provide support to the communities and colleagues in disaster areas. In addition to making a $50,000 gift to the American Red Cross, and encouraging all teammates to make individual gifts to the Red Cross, Grant Thornton created a new Qualified Disaster Relief Program enabling our community of current and retired professionals to donate money and provide assistance to our colleagues in need, now and in the future. With teammates facing significant uninsured losses, these contributions will be of tremendous help to neighbors in need.

GTUnited

Our employees are inspired to give back, volunteering more than 47,000 hours of service in 2017.

We’re working every day to focus on our clients and prospects, provide our people with meaningful opportunities and lead in our communities through GTUnited, our first official volunteer program.
Last year, 2,200 of our colleagues took the GT24 Challenge, each of them pledging to complete 24 hours of volunteer service. Since then, employees have logged more than 47,000 hours of volunteer service supporting over 900 non-profits around the country. That translates to almost 2,000 full days — or more than five years — of round-the-clock service.
We are so proud of all the work our colleagues have put into GTUnited, and we enjoy shining a spotlight on volunteers who have provided extraordinary service to help others by taking action on one or more of the Global Goals.
