    Case Studies

    Brief Overview:

    A well established service provider finds itself trying to navigate a financial recovery from the 2008 "Great Recession" without its internal or external financial team intact. Read the solutions that helped create a 250% increase in cash reserves and savings after two years.

    Business Challenges

    • After many successful years, a service company with annual revenues of nearly $5 million, has a significant decline in top line revenues of slightly more than 20%. Compounded by the 2008 economic crisis, the company now finds itself in a major debt dilemma.
    • The prior financial team including the CFO and internal and external accountant left the organization shortly after 2008 leaving the company without proper internal financial controls.
    • Management became concerned about the quality of its remaining financial team and consistency of service by the newly hired outside accounting firm.
    • Financial reporting was two years behind schedule and as a result created an adverse relationship with their lender regarding important investment property and other asset holdings.

    Business Solutions

    • Conducted a review and analysis of current cash-flow, projected cash flows (both present and past due expenses along with historical and present revenues including sources), and examined the balance sheet for liquidity and potential repositioning of assets.
    • Provided CFO and comptroller type financial oversight services for the client including assistance with assessment of potential large expenditures, financial management of cash and other assets, and evaluation of budgets.
    • A debt elimination strategy was developed and implemented over an 8 month period to pay off all past due obligations and keep re-occurring expenses current.
    • On the client's behalf, began direct negotiations with the lender and provided current financial reporting to demonstrate to the bank that all loans can be rated in good standing.
    • Assisted the client in right-sizing the business including reduction of redundant staffing and expenses, as well as tighter restrictions on new expenditures.
    • Assisted the client in establishing internal financial controls and appropriate cash-management procedures.
    • Performed a confidential search and helped the client select and hire a new internal financial team including bookkeeping, accounts payable and an external accountant.
