Need to justify an investment or approach? Struggling to prove ROI or make a “go / no go” decision? Executives are constantly tasked with growing sales and improving the bottom line. Our team of data-driven consultants can get into the details and offer perspective and recommendations, whether that’s building the next fiscal year’s budget or performing the due diligence on an investment.
A solid financial plan framework is critical in measuring and tracking your business profitability. Our former retail P&L holders will analyze and interpret your P&L statement and recommend corrective actions when needed. Our consultants will assess your current metrics against industry best practices and help determine investments across marketing, technology, people, and operations. We’ll make sure you have the right dashboard set-up to visualize your past, current, and future state of your business. We can also validate your short- and long-term budget and make sure you’re keeping market trends and changes in mind.
Sound investments require careful preparation and due diligence. Prospective buyers, private equity firms and investors leverage our team’s expertise to evaluate ecommerce and retail investments, pre- and post-M&A opportunities. Through quick evaluations, deep business and technical assessments, and go-to-market strategies and plans, we work with investors to identify strengths, weaknesses and opportunities, develop budgets and financial models, perform due diligence, and acquire the appropriate talent. Post-acquisition, we partner with new ownership and management teams to develop or refine growth plans, acquire “best-fit” talent, and execute on initiatives and tactical plans to ensure growth and return on investment.
