Cash and Working Capital Management
We work with clients across the whole spectrum from healthy to distressed situations when there is a specific trigger for cash resulting from the need to finance organic growth, key projects and/or acquisitions. We support our clients over the whole of their cash agenda from the initial identification of an opportunity through to supporting them in the release of the cash and ensuring that this improvement is sustainable.
We help our clients to understand what the right level of working capital is within each of their country operations and/or business units and the improvement potential that is available.
Where we can help
In our experience, driving sustainable working capital performance improvement requires a cash mindset throughout organisations that have often been focused on growing revenue and margin, sometimes at the expense of cash. We help our clients to instil a cash mindset across their organisations and to manage the tradeoffs inherent in an agenda covering cash, revenue and profitability in a constructive, collaborative and co-ordinated manner.
We work with senior management in achieving sustainable receivables, payables and inventory reductions across all geographies and all industry sectors. In addition to providing our clients with insight into specific drivers of working capital performance and the impact of country payment cultures, our team also acts in a hands-on capacity to support the introduction of leading practices to support sustainable performance improvement.
