- Business valuation
Estimate the economic value of the business and business divisions to identify which divisions create value and which destroy value.
- Strategic planning
Strategic decisions must maximise expected future value. We work with management and the board to develop strategic plans that aligns with the owner's shareholder value expectations for a future exit event. This includes the identification of key performance indicators, benchmarking of value drivers, evaluating if capital is allocated efficiently and aligning incentives with shareholder interests.

Identify the important value drivers of a business which must be focussed on to maximise shareholder value. This includes ensuring there is a sufficient level of ‘financial hygiene’ in the business to monitor financial performance and value drivers.
- Cost of capital
Advise on the appropriate cost of capital of the businesses now and in the near future using benchmarking and our experience.
- Transaction advisory
Assisting management with strategic and financial evaluations, deep analyses of forecast value drivers and value analyses to ensure they are well equipped in their negotiations. We also believe value is a forward looking concept and therefore must consider expected value drivers.
