Business review, Working Capital & Liquidity Management
In times of crisis, businesses are primarily focused on accessing external funding. Nevertheless, they often overlook a hidden source of capital, i.e. their working capital. We advise on cash flow requirements, develop appropriate actions under various scenarios and assess potential risks. Forecasting a reliable mid-term financial plan is paramount to properly address any unforeseen liquidity and solvency constraints. We will closely work with your management to translate their strategic view into a robust projections plan comprising mid-term monthly cash flows (covering from one to three years), income statements and period-end balance sheet positions along with proactively implement an action plan to lower liquidity and solvency risks. Our analysis will challenge management forecasts and review appropriate options for debt restructuring. Financial, market and operational review are mile stones of this process and are used as diagnosis tools. As a “post-crisis response”, we could also support your company to develop a long-term business continuity plan, which is a critical component of successful business management. Main elements of this plan could be: review of key strategic options for your business, optimization and automation of internal processes and systems, as well as identification of potential investors and long-term growth and financing options.
