Strategy & corporate finance
Strategy is at the heart of successful enterprises. Strategy is also at the heart of Solving IMCG's consulting services. We work with our clients to identify real, differentiated, competitive advantages designed to help them achieve their corporate vision and ambition. We offer a combination of strategy and corporate finance services at both corporate level and business unit level
In corporate strategy development we help our clients to understand profitability and contributions to corporate value now and in the future. Our Solving Efeso strategy framework has proven itself as an effective tool in this field.
We believe in shareholder value as one of the main drivers for doing business. Solving IMCG assists in assessing how the different businesses contribute added value to the holding company and vice versa. By studying the client's portfolio management, we focus attention on the issue of having the right skills and capabilities in house. Using this information, Solving IMCG develops specific strategic plans, in cooperation with its clients, for:
- geographical expansion
- new business development
- exploring new fields beyond competition
Business unit strategy is the process of developing specific business and action plans that will enable individual business units to achieve their full potential. We work from an objective fact base to identify the most important opportunities for improvement and to quantify their potential.
Common assignments include business planning, development of growth strategies, customer value analysis, production allocation and co-creation projects. Solving IMCG's approach is based on the principle that strategy development should be result-oriented and based on thorough data analysis rather than aspiration. This approach leads to practical and achievable target strategies. We are always prepared to help our clients to implement the new strategy. In other words, we suit the action to the word.
The Solving IMCG corporate finance practice was founded on the belief that clients should not simply be handed over to an investment banker or company broker once the strategy has been developed. We believe in strategy in action, so when advising on strategy we want to make that strategy work!
Solving IMCG puts strategy to work by offering all main corporate finance services for both buy-side and sell-side assignments, including management buy-ins and buy-outs:
- partner searches
- transaction support
- business valuation
- deal structuring and financing
- due diligence
- outsourcing and insourcing
implementation of internationalisation strategies
Our client list consists of a diverse mixture of Dutch and international multinationals, private equity investors and family enterprises.
More than 50% of our work in this field relates to cross-border transactions, on which we cooperate with our international Solving Efeso colleagues and make use of our extensive network of international partners from Globalscope.
