Two local accounting firms among top 100

Katz Sapper & Miller LLP and Blue & Co. LLC are the only two local accounting
firms to crack Inside Public Accounting’s latest top-100 list.

Based on annual revenue,
Indianapolis-based Katz Sapper ranked 67th, up from 71st last year, while Carmel-based Blue & Co. placed 81st, up from
90th in 2008.

Katz Sapper’s revenue in 2008 grew 2.8 percent, to $44.5 million; Blue & Co.’s climbed
15.2 percent, to $37.3 million, according to the trade publication.

Altogether, revenue of the nation’s
100-largest accounting firms rose 7.1 percent, ending a four-year run of double-digit growth. Profit was nearly flat, at 15
percent, the publication said.

With $10.7 billion in annual revenue, New York-based Deloitte LLP
is the nation’s largest accounting firm, followed by Ernst & Young, PricewaterhouseCoopers and
KPMG LLP, all in New York.
