OPErations improvement

An operational improvement plan can provide significant material and operational benefits. RE-ACT's team of experts designs and implements programs focused on improving margins, cash flow initiatives, and cost-cutting opportunities for businesses in a variety of industries. We can develop and implement such performance improvement plans for healthy companies as those that are already under massive pressure. Our team helps clients drive operational change in their business. Key areas include: Identifying and implementing initiatives to improve EBITDA and liquidity, plans to improve working capital, assessing opportunities for cost reduction, including options for outsourcing/insourcing and shared services, and adjusting overheads, investment and investment valuations, or enhancements the efficiency and improvement of processes in logistics.

Cash- And Working Capital Management

For reducing funding needs, our team has considerable experience in managing and implementing projects that release working capital. We advise and assist management teams in implementing cash flow and working capital improvement measures, ensuring that ownership remains within the company so that the benefits are sustained on completion of the project. In our experience, cash and working capital management is not just a financial issue; it requires the involvement of the entire company, such as B. sales forecasts and production planning to implement improvement initiatives. Key processes that we focus on as a source of working capital improvement are Order to Cash Cycle Cutbacks, DSO / DPO Analyzes, Order to Pay Cycle Optimization, CAPEX Analyzes, and the creation of treasury policies and procedures; Cash pooling and setting cash and financial covenants.

Carve-Outs

We help to find the optimal way to separate a part of a company or to divide a group of companies. Our team provides operational and financial analysis expertise coupled with the ability to plan and implement carve-outs to help our clients maximize the benefits of a carve-out. We have a broad range of carve-out experiences to ensure that risks are managed for "Day 1". This reduces downtime to a minimum and allows management to focus on their usual business. We understand both buyer and seller perspectives and are equally well positioned to review management's separation plans for potential buyers. Our experts assess the robustness of the plans for change in management, including the willingness to transition as an interim manager to accompany the carve-out. We assist vendors' clients in the preparation and execution of a sale by: developing a stand-alone operating model for outsourcing, identifying inter-company dependencies, developing and implementing transitional agreements between the seller and the carve-out unit, identifying separation risks in one Carve-Out plan, preparation of detailed implementation plans that will enable effective management of separation, preparation of carve-out financial statements and determination of optimal presentation of those financial statements, development of a clear budget for the remainder of the business after the divestiture.

VALUATION

We provide independent and reliable estimates of the value of companies, equities, financial instruments, and intangible assets in all contexts where valuation analysis is required. Our services include Fairness Opinions and Valuation Opinions on planned transactions or corporate restructurings, valuations of existing financial reports, valuation of intellectual property and other intangible assets, and litigation support. Our assessments are based on our disciplined and robust application of economic and financial theory and our many years of experience in a wide range of industries and regions. We are not auditors and therefore free from actual or perceived conflicts of interest that may arise if an audit firm also conducts valuation work. RE-ACT offers ratings based on UGB, HGB, IFRS, and U.S. GAAP. No matter how complex the problems are or how difficult the circumstances are, we have the experience, the technical know-how, and the resources to make reliable assessment judgments.
