We work with companies of all sizes across a range of sectors in considering the financing implications of various business strategies and objectives, including growth, business capacity, merger and acquisitions, regulatory implications and new initiatives/special projects and bids. This involves a detailed dialogue with senior management in order to understand the reasoning behind the strategy and the outcomes sought in following them. We frequently take this understanding forward through financial modelling in order to develop a clear framework for comparison of different inputs, assumptions and scenarios and in order to consider different financing options to underpin the strategy.
We offer clients a rigorous test of their plans within a qualitative and quantitative framework, as well as a practical and innovative approach in seeking to deliver them from a financing perspective.
With a robust business plan key to the success of any corporate or project entity, our experienced team of Partners, business analysts and modellers work closely with clients in developing business plans or full model build (for new projects or initiatives) and refining or developing their existing business plans (for companies or existing projects), including:
- Support with key assumptions (particularly where influenced by funding or financial markets)
- Stress and scenario testing for risk management purposes, including multi variant analysis
- Review of business plans for funding, regulatory or ratings purposes and M&A situations. Model audit assignments in order to ensure that a robust structure and framework is being employed as well as assessing plans from a strategic and risk perspective prior to engagement with third parties such as lenders and other stakeholders in a business or project.
- Acquisition or refinancing opportunities present themselves, acquiring parties and funders may wish to have third party assurance and due diligence undertaken on business plan financial models and we have significant experience in this area, including the provision of detailed reports and commentaries covering any issues or risks identified.
