Offering introduction

Add certainty to your deal thesis with Operational Due Diligence

Operational Due Diligence is the most reliable and impactful lever for short- and long-term EBITDA improvement, but is often neglected. PE sponsors devote significant resources to commercial due diligence to assess growth potential, but growth is at risk in today’s environment. Removing complexity, and associated costs, is the most dependable way to improve margins and capture value.

Transforming go-to-market for a construction materials company

After thriving through economic downturns, a construction materials company found growth harder to achieve, and profitability harder to maintain. WP&C helped the company rationalize product lines and SKUs, implement quick wins in pricing and customer policies, and realign field sales on product first and then geography. After one year, ownership was able to sell the entire enterprise, getting a higher multiple on top of improved EBIT. And in three years, overall EBIT improved by over 30%.
