Business Viability Reviews 

 

We conduct business reviews that range from short term, high level reviews to detailed business assessments. A review typically provides an analysis of the current financial position and future business prospects.  The review would generally incorporate an assessment of some or all of the following:

  • Current financial position

  • Critical issues facing the organization

  • Assessment of business processes, management, information systems, and inventory management

  • Competitive analysis

  • Reasonableness of the current business plan, short term and longer term prospects

  • Analysis of options

  • Recommendations for business to maximize opportunities in both the short and long term.

Performance Improvement  

 

We assist clients in identifying and implementing cost saving initiatives, management and control systems, and improve the quality of business processes.

 

We use our experience to focus on critical short term issues including financial performance and cash flow management, as well as assisting businesses in improving or supplementing existing management. Unlike other consultancies, we are able to assist in the implementation of recommendations, either directly or by finding the appropriate short term and longer management resources.

We can help prepare and submit refinancing proposals to potential lenders which highlight the strengths of the proposal while still addressing the requirements of the lenders.

Arranging Financing – We have extensive connections with both primary and secondary financial institutions both locally and nationally, as well as expertise in documenting business plans and raising capital.
