The demands of a financial planning process stretch resources and can sometimes benefit from outside suppoort. I have developed business plans and forecasts for regular planning cycles, in support of fund raising activity and enabling business change. Longer term plans have included five year strategic plans, business reviews, and new product evaluations. I have developed short and long range planning models for a variety of businesses.
Pricing and Major Bids
Support of new business activity in any organisation can be complex and hugely time consuming. We have provided financial and commercial support for successful major bids for both public and private sector business. Amplius can conduct reviews of pricing policies and processes, and review or construct effective pricing models to meet business objectives. Our principal consultant is skilled in marrying the often conflicting needs of sales and operations in the sales process to produce winning financial bids.
Making a successful acquisition needs a thorough understanding of how the target business works financially and commercially, as well as operationally and culturally. I have supported a number of successful acquisitions with turnover ranging from £1m-£50m from both private individuals and corporate organisations. Services have included financial and commercial evaluation, valuation, business planning, support of negotiation and obtaining internal approvals, as well as integration activity.
Profit improvement can mean a number of different things that need comprehensive financial review and evaluation, and can often benefit from an external, experienced and independent view. I have conducted a wide range of projects, including reviews of the profitability of product lines, effectiveness of specific business areas or departments, benchmarking, cost reduction activity, impacts of volume changes, and risk analysis.
