Here Is a Graphic That Shows All You Need to Know About BDO’s 2021 Global Revenue

Pretty much all accounting firm press releases are filled with back-patting gobbledygook, but recaps of a firm’s most recent financial year take the word salad to the extreme.

For example, BDO’s recent press release on its FY 2021 global revenue. Execs at BDO, the fifth-largest accounting firm in the world by revenue, probably gave the poor PR grunts a bingo card of buzzwords and phrases to include in the release, and they are mostly all in there:

  • Agile
  • Cutting-edge
  • Culture
  • Value
  • Strategic
  • Robust
  • Purpose-driven
  • Digital transformation
  • Seamless
  • Innovate
  • Streamlined
  • Flexible
  • Continuity
  • Think and work differently
  • “Tapping into the richness of that diversity and flexibility to drive success within our organization.”

Missing: synergy, disrupt

Fortunately, BDO included a non-jargony graphic that highlights its total global revenue for 2021, percentage of revenue by region, and percentage of revenue by service line, among other things:

BDO accumulated $10.3 billion of revenue globally in FY 2020.
