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 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.
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.
