Financial and Benchmarking Analysis
Essential to the success of a business are accurate financial statements. However, due to the many other demands placed on the business the financial statements are often managed haphazardly. Unfortunately, in today’s business world this can be detrimental to the business. Accurate and timely financials are essential to managing a successful company.
We provide benchmarking services that help business owners evaluate their business operations in comparison with peers in their industry. Benchmarking often helps businesses identify areas within their business that are performing well and areas that need improvement. Throughout the benchmarking process we provide valuable insight that management can use to improve operations and net profit.
We use a company’s financial data in conjunction with other analytical software to help businesses review their company’s performance like never before. Our process is easy to understand and creates a dashboard of key financial performance indicators. Our process helps businesses understand their operations and financial statements in a manner that is very similar to the information used by the banks and other financial institutions when underwriting a loan during the lending process.
Company Sale and Financing
If you are currently considering or plan to sell your company, a clean financial process and accurate financials may in many cases significantly reduce the amount of due diligence time required by the buyer. Likewise valuation multiples can improve significantly. Solid financials are often referred to as the management team or owner’s scorecard.
