Examples of our work

Bank financing forecasting - We supported an organisation that was struggling to obtain finance for an acquisition due to their quality of cashflow reporting. We worked with both financial and non-financial personnel to gain an understanding of the business. We created an integrated model with built-in sensitivities for management to use, along with training for key finance team members around cashflow management and reporting - eventually resulting in the organisation being able to secure financing.

WC management large group - A multinational plc experienced a periodic decline in working capital despite increasing revenue. We supported management in identifying the root cause of this by performing an assessment of key cycles in order to identify leakages. Follow this, an improvement implementation plan was devised with a working capital dashboard being integrated into divisional performance reviews, with targets being set in key risk areas - all of which resulted in working capital returning to normalised levels.
