This retail company has satisfied shareholders again

You can be a winner when times are difficult

The crisis is not over yet, but you can still be a winner, even now. Our success stories show how effective our integrated approach is: many companies are now in much better shape. You too can benefit from our knowledge and experience. Together we will soon get you back in shape, by tackling your cash management and financing structure for instance.

The situation
This family business operates in the retail clothing market and has several shop formulas. It has had net losses in the last few financial years and has recently broken its binding agreements with the bank. Under pressure from the bank, the company decided to bring in an expert, and it chose Deloitte.

The approach
The family business and Deloitte drew up a detailed cash flow forecast together. They also analysed the financing capacity and requirements for the next few years. In addition, Deloitte analysed and compared the contribution margin per shop formula and performed a valuation analysis based on the cash flow forecasts.

The result
After a thorough analysis a number of possible solutions for the financial position of the company were put forward. This allowed the management to formulate a proposal for the shareholders about possibly shedding some of the shop formulas, attracting new finance and the implications this has for the financial position of the company and shareholders’ interests. Meanwhile the management is in talks with a financier/investor about a solution based on the analyses. This company is ready to succeed again.
