How we can help

Capital Budgeting and Investment Planning
Company resources are, by definition, limited. It is, therefore, essential to evaluate their availability in order to carry out the correct and effective planning of investments. The development and formalisation of a strategy is the key for adequate company growth which defines its characteristics, steps and risks.
Company Restructuring
In times of crisis or expansion companies should be ready to address rapid changes and be equipped with the necessary tools for that. Often, specific professional consultancy is required along with an internal reorganisation that crosses three phases:
  • Analysis of the activities, comparison with the relevant market, development of an outgoing hypothesis
  • Re-implementation of the company by way of a credible business plan
  • Determination of the financial resources necessary to cover unsecured credits
Valuations and Appraisals of Assets
Sometimes happens that a company requires a specific valuation of an asset. This measurement has now become necessary in at least four areas:
  • Development, integration and restructuring strategy (M&A operation)
  • Formation of financial statements
  • Periodic estimate of corporate performance
  • Corporate guarantees
The choice of the model to be used for assigning a value and the purpose for which the valuation is made are important factors which affect the result that is obtained.
