Our Focus

Positive financial results are critical to business success. That’s why we focus on helping mid- to large-size companies create actionable, real-world profit development strategies.

P&Ls and balance sheets report history. We provide investment firms and other potential buyers with a strategic perspective of the true long-term earning power of a current holding or potential acquisition.

The Way We Work

We believe facts are your friends, and ego is your enemy. We utilize state-of-the-art research and analysis techniques to discover the real facts before critical decisions are made.

Based on this information we help companies

  • Develop a clear understanding of the company’s unique customer-relevant strengths
  • Leverage those strengths to create a Super Sweet Spot that will totally separate the company from all competition
  • Identify opportunities that can easily and quickly generate incremental sales and earnings

We assist investment bankers and private equity firms to determine

  • If the financials accurately reflect the true value of the company to be acquired
  • If the company’s strategy positions it for sustained, profitable growth
  • The strategic and operational fatal flaws that can negatively impact sales and profits
