DEMUTUALIZATION refers to the de-mutualizing of an insurance company. The proceeds from such an event are normally distributed to the policyholders in the form of cash, shares, or a combination thereof in the surviving entity.

INTERIM AUDIT is an audit conducted during the fiscal year usually as a means of minimizing the work and time involved in concluding the audit after the fiscal year. A corporation might have an interim audit covering the first nine months of the fiscal year so that at the end of the fiscal year most of the auditing will focus on the last three months of the fiscal year thus allowing for a comprehensive audit and early completion of the audit reports. An interim audit does not usually yield any formal reports from the external auditors.
