Business Planning and Growth
Businesses operations reflect an organisation’s application of resources towards stated goals. The consistent application of effective and efficient operational practices ensures both client expectations are met and the operational infrastructure can support the achievement of strategic goals.
Through structured change programs we support business owners to transition their own time from an inward operational role to an outward strategic business focus role.
Our services include:
- Operational reviews
- Operational improvement programs (FIIP)
- Operational Transactional support / Virtual CFO and COO
- Outsourcing – investigation and implementation support
- Transitionary managerial support
“Price is what you pay. Value is what you get.”
– Warren Buffet
Value = (Revenue – Expenses) x (Growth – Risk)
Businesses will often need guidance in determining what the value of their business is, particularly if it is one they have built from scratch and they have had little exposure to the transaction market.
It is critical that any valuation or commercial review of a business is done with adherence to sound fundamentals and logical analysis. This will ensure that decisions made as a consequence of the review are based on a realistic understanding of the important factors influencing value and risk.
The process of determining the value of anything is a mixture of art and science. The science is in establishing the facts and testing them. The art is in understanding how to interpret those facts in the context of the external environment and the circumstances that exist at a given point in time.
We have extensive experience in carrying out valuations of businesses and assets for a variety of purposes including:
- Sale and acquisition
- Funding proposals
- Lending reviews
- Internal equity transfers
- Group restructures
- Buy / Sell agreements
- Establishing return on investment objectives
An integral part of our service is taking the time to understand the business and the environment in which it operates to achieve a realistic appraisal of its current value.
Understanding how a business is performing or likely to perform into the future is a key component for any stakeholder – investors, lenders, merger or venture partners, for example – looking for an ongoing involvement with the business.
We have broad experience in the conduct of commercial reviews and of specific projects to assess their economic viability.
This is critically important in supporting activities such as:
- Acquisition opportunities
- Strategic planning and risk management
- Investment capital decision making
- Bank lending reviews
