Eide Bailly Continues Growth with Addition of Sample & Bailey

Sample & Bailey CPAs P.C., (S&B) of Fort Collins, Colo., will be joining Fargo, N.D.-based Eide Bailly (FY13 net revenue of $171.2 million) on Aug. 4. Eide Bailly’s professional count will rise to 1,449, which includes 211 partners.

“Adding Sample & Bailey to Eide Bailly gives us seven offices in the state of Colorado. Fort Collins complements our other locations and provides us with a gateway into northern Colorado and Wyoming.” says Eide Bailly MP/CEO Dave Stende. “S&B has built strong relationships with their clients and, as one firm, we will be able to help them with more of their business needs through a variety of specialty services like cost segregation studies, repair regulation compliance, international services, buy-sell assistance, technology solutions, SEC assistance and more.”

Denise Juliana, S&B MP, says her firm has a passion for client service, for rolling up their sleeves and helping their clients. “Joining Eide Bailly will give us more time to focus on our clients. It is easy to get bogged down with administrative things; going forward, Eide Bailly’s administrative team will take care of these things for us. We are very excited about the opportunity to give our clients undivided attention, to dig deeper and to help them with more of their needs.”

S&B founding partner Roger Sample says they have had ‘ties’ to Eide Bailly for years. “Eide Bailly did our peer review and we have worked together on a few common clients. This has given us a sense of familiarity, a comfort, with our decision. S&B is 35 years old, successful and well-recognized in Colorado as a leading firm—a strong foundation on which to add the Eide Bailly name. Now we can take our practice to greater heights much quicker.”
