National Firm Proud to Call Sudbury Home With Latest Merger

MNP and LVP Join Forces to Benefit Businesses in Sudbury and Area

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - July 11, 2013) - MNP LLP, one of Canada's largest national accounting and consulting firms, will enter the Sudbury and area marketplace for the first time when Laberge Venne & Partners (LVP) merges with MNP on September 1, 2013. MNP was looking to add a key location in the area while LVP was seeking an opportunity to offer even more specialty services to its clients.

Based in Sudbury and Manitoulin Island, LVP has been operating since 2003, when it was formed by partners Mark Laberge, Guy Venne, Daryl Heinsohn, and Angèle Charbonneau. Over the past decade, it has grown considerably with the addition of six managers and 17 support staff and serves clients in a number of communities, including Elliot Lake, Blind River, New Liskeard, Chapleau, Kapuskasing and Parry Sound. The firm provides a wide range of accounting, tax and consulting services, including valuation, litigation support and forensic accounting, to diverse industries.

"We were looking for an opportunity to not only add more resources but to offer more specialty services to our clients," said Guy Venne, Partner, LVP. "With experts in corporate finance, cross-border taxation, forensic accounting, valuation, risk management, consulting and so much more, MNP enhances our ability to ensure our clients maximize returns and reduce risks in every area of their business. We couldn't be more excited about joining forces."

MNP continues to see strong growth in a challenging economy through mergers with like-minded, quality firms that share the same commitment to people. "We were looking to grow our practice through a strategic location in the Sudbury area and couldn't have found a better fit than LVP," said Sean Wallace, Executive Vice President (EVP), Ontario and Quebec. "In addition to being regional leaders in accounting, they are a great fit with our culture and share our vision, values and commitment to providing personalized services. We are very much looking forward to growing together."

Complementing MNP's merger success, its personalized and partner-led approach to business has allowed the firm to lead the pack with the highest year-over-year growth rates of any of Canada's top accounting firms. Operating since 1945, MNP is the fastest growing accounting and consulting firm** with almost 80 offices and a team of over 3,000 across Canada from Vancouver to Montreal.

"MNP's unwavering commitment to people, both clients and team members, is something we have in common," added Daryl Heinsohn, Partner, LVP. "It comes to no surprise that MNP has also been voted one of Canada's 50 best employers for the fifth year in a row. We are excited to team up in our efforts to help our clients achieve even greater success."

LVP will remain in their current locations in Sudbury at 1970 Paris Street and in Manitoulin Island/ Mindemoya on Highway 551.
