Our Results Speak for Themselves
From $440K Loss to $572K Profit
Although operating for 22 years, a small manufacturing company had only produced breakeven results or profits of 1% or less. In recent years, significant inventory increases were disproportionate to sales, and profit margins were falling. The company was in serious danger of going out of business. The Profit Experts completed a diagnostic review of the company’s operations and found a total of 35 specific functions with critical profit leak exposure. Clear priorities were provided for addressing each issue in the proper sequence. Profit tools and processes were established to provide a map to improved profitability and sustained cash flow.
Within one year, the company saw a dramatic turnaround.
Profit swung from a $440K loss to a record profit of $572K-an increase in performance of over $1 million
EBITDA margins improved from 7% to 13+%
7.6% of revenue was eliminated as unprofitable
Funding Bid Secured for Critical Phase of Company Growth
A small technology company had enjoyed 15 years of consistent revenue growth. However, challenges in product standardization and an extended development strategy had created an unsustainable overhead structure and were draining cash flow. Management needed the ability to reassure investors about the new business model and secure the additional funding required to guarantee the company’s future. The Profit Experts were able to validate the profitability of the company’s new operating profile and quantify the cash flow required to implement the new management strategy over a five-year horizon. This was instrumental in negotiating the necessary additional funding during a critical phase of the company’s growth. Profit tools and processes were put in place to facilitate daily monitoring of the cash flow. With their new ability to see the details, management has produced results ahead of plan and more than satisfied investor expectations.
Multi-Million Dollar Profit Leak Averted
A well-established metals processing company had benefited from increased commodity prices in recent years. However, managing customer contracts remained difficult and uncertain. The company was at risk for millions of dollars with every new signed contract, if market conditions should change. The Profit Experts determined that contract terms were critical in preventing profit leaks and ensuring long-term customer relationships. New profit tools were created to determine the true profitability of each operational area and to balance the complex dynamics of customer requirements. Management has since used this new intelligence to successfully renegotiate customer contracts during a critical phase of the company’s growth. The new contract terms have significantly improved margins, adding multiple millions to the bottom line each year.
