Private Equity

In this prolonged downturn, it’s harder than ever to create value from Private Equity investments. Costs have been cut, underperforming assets have been sold, but earnings remain depressed. As a result, today’s Private Equity firms need new approaches to boost profits in their portfolio companies.

Our distinctive combination of strategy and operational experience, and tools, such as Square Root Costing, can helps PE clients rapidly hone in on untapped financial and operational levers. Our team partners with Private Equity firms in two key areas:

  • Due Diligence: We inject a fresh, unbiased perspective through our analytics. A key differentiator here is: understanding and quantifying the opportunity for improvement through the reduction of complexity.
  • Value Creation in Portfolio Companies: We partner with management teams to help improve EBITDA and find new opportunities for growth. We work with portfolio companies on areas including: portfolio optimization, parts rationalization and cost analysis & improvement.
