Sufficient financial scope is a decisive determinant of success particularly in times in which companies face major change processes. The options that are available are limited if financial resources are insufficient. Finance may be required for capital spending, new projects or for growth.
Using detailed and integrated forecasts, we calculate your company’s financial requirements and develop individual financing solutions on this basis. We convince lenders with our business and finance plans, thus securing the necessary funding for successful business growth. We not only show the extent to which investments are viable and profitable but also devise suitable funding alternatives.
Frequently, however, it is sufficient to verify the plausibility of existing plans and ideas and to supplement them. You can make use of our expertise in these areas to evaluate and enhance your plans. Working closely with you, we then concentrate on the issue of importance for you.
By analyzing your capital and financial structures, we identify potential for optimization and develop funding alternatives attuned to your company’s requirements. We assist you in finding and raising finance. If need be, we can also conduct talks with the lenders.
A further important aspect is the optimization of internal finance, particularly working capital. With our broad experience and analytical tools, we show you how systematic working capital management can widen your company’s own financial scope.
We see ourselves as competent partners for your company who are able to create the financial basis for successful business performance.
There are many situations in which a company requires professional business or finance plans: investment finance, restructuring of finance, applications for government funding as well as spin-offs, acquisitions or efforts to gain new strategic partners, to name but a few.
Corporate planning alone is not sufficient. The requirements - not least of all those stipulated by the lender - have risen substantially. The business plan must be presented as a whole and in a strategic context. In addition to careful planning, this also calls for the presentation of the business model and strategy with its core activities. The goals and effects must be clearly defined and implemented within the context of management and organizational structures explained.
A detailed and professional business plan is a crucial determinant of success
A business and finance plan is used as a basis for making decisions and must therefore be clear and comprehensible. The more detailed and professional the plans are the more credibility can be achieved, thus allowing you to convince decision makers. Moreover, a professional business plan demonstrates management’s leadership capabilities internally and externally, creating the basis for successful implementation of the strategy.
We help you develop and prepare viable business and financing plans attuned to the specific target groups and requirements. You, too, can benefit from our high capabilities and many years of experience.
What are the hallmarks of good corporate planning?
