Mergers, Acquisitions & Recovery
Not the everyday efforts of the Superhero Businessman, but the concepts mentioned here can be important arrows to have available in any strategic plan.
How to double or triple you business overnight - the often published promise of a zealous marketing guru. There is often no need to try and figure out how to build such optimistic goals into a new marketing plan when the answer may be a strategic business purchase, alliance or merger. Yes, a business acquisition or merger can take a long time to consummate, but if done thoughtfully and carefully, it really can produce phenomenal rewards. Why not let E to R assist in assessing the feasibility of just such a growth strategy.
Talk to 5 M&A consultants and you'll probably get five different valuations for your small business. As you probably guessed, the science of valuing a business is not exact and many factors come into play. E to R uses the same tools as other consultants. Our promise is to say and present as true and as realistic a value as possible.
Asset Disposal & Liquidation:
Don't let non-productive assets lie around idly collecting dust - there may be gold in "them thar hills". In today's high tech world of communication, almost everything has some liquidation value and buyers are easier to find than ever. An E to R asset appraisal can help identify potential cash locked up in those unproductive assets.
Damage Control & Turnaround Strategies:
It's never too soon to admit your business may be struggling. Our experience is most small business owners are afraid to recognize the tell tale signs of a struggling business. Remember: Hope is not a business plan. Many to most struggling businesses can be turned around or salvaged. The sooner help is requested, the easier it is to plan and execute a turnaround plan. E to R has a great deal of experience in this arena.
The definition of a Receivership is: "A form of bankruptcy in which a company can avoid liquidation by reorganizing with the help of a court-appointed Receiver". Bob Steele at E to R has considerable experience, having acted as Court appointed Receiver in several judicial turnarounds or reorganizations.
