The combined global revenues of Baker Tilly International member firms for the year ended 30 December 2016 were US$3.2bn, an increase of 6% from 2015. During the same period, our total number of partners and staff worldwide grew by 9% to 30,500.
Our member firms in North America reported strong growth averaging 7.8%, with overall growth being impacted by the departure of two member firms. Growth across other regions was also strong. Part of this growth was the result of mergers and acquisitions (M&A) in Canada, Australia, Kazakhstan, Singapore, the US and the UK. Alongside strong M&A activity, we welcomed new firms to the network in Austria, Bolivia, Brazil, Honduras, Ireland, Paraguay, Seychelles, Slovenia, Somalia and Tunisia.
