Size up M&A opportunities fast with revealing, new profitability ratios.
For mergers & acquisitions, we serve:
Turn data into profit vision.
Time-Based Profitability Snapshots
We work with our partners to provide pre-exit analytics that help CEOs, CFOs and their advisors develop a more compelling Confidential Information Memorandum (CIM) by measuring manufacturing profit margin for each production hour for different products and assembly lines.
Enhanced Quality of Earnings Assessments for Due Diligence
During a time-constrained due diligence process, our analytics assist our partners in digging deeper than conventional ‘quality of earnings’ reports to understand the true drivers of revenue and profit performance and rigorously quantify the hidden profit potential (and downside risk) of an acquisition target.
We give you an unfair advantage over your competition – the ability to see the future with clarity.
Do you know what undermines the financial performance of nearly every manufacturing firm? Complexity. It’s hard to see things clearly when a manufacturer serves many different customers with thousands of distinct products from an array of capital-intensive facilities. This complexity leads to massive data generation that’s very difficult to sift through and interpret. Our tool simplifies things by making opportunities for revenue growth clear as day.
The greater the variety of customers, products and assets that a complex manufacturing firm is managing, the greater the hidden revenue and profit upside that Profit Velocity can help you identify and capture for shareholders.
We help you generate extraordinarily detailed profitability ratios
Profitability ratios measure how well a company is able to employ its assets to generate value for shareholders. Profitability ratios are used by analysts and investors to measure a company’s ability to generate profit relative to its revenue, operating costs, assets and shareholder equity over a specific period of time.
Profit Velocity provides profitability ratios at a level of granularity never before possible because we bring the factor of production time into the total manufacturing cost formula. We help you pull together the data you have sitting idle in existing systems to instantly generate extremely detailed, highly accurate profitability ratios. This helps you quickly size up investment opportunities and see where improvements can be made to increase the potential for driving profits.
Private Equity Investment Partners
A powerful new way to improve exit values.
Private equity investors know that achieving far higher levels of profit performance will in turn yield dramatic gains in exit values. Profit Velocity understands this too. That’s why our breakthrough approach offers unprecedented opportunities to accelerate the revenue and EBITDA flowing from complex manufacturing investments.
Profit Velocity creates new value throughout the ownership cycle:
We support our consulting partners to provide enhanced due diligence reports that incorporate our proprietary time-based profit analytics. Our new perspective helps investment teams identify specific revenue and EBITDA improvement opportunities (and downside risks) that can become key factors in the investment decision.
We offer our partners a robust platform for the development of meaningful 100-day improvement plans. Our advanced analytics can be used to address a wide array of issues from financially optimized S&OP plans to manufacturing profit margin analysis to product mix optimization strategies, plant expansion or consolidation scenarios, and strategic pricing shifts.
We support the work of our consulting partners, investment bankers and management teams as they develop actionable improvement plans and programs that strengthen the case for improved exit valuations.
Quantify what no one else can see.
The ability to develop defensible financial projections is critical in sell-side engagements. Unfortunately, most projections rely on highly aggregated data that fails to identify detailed opportunities for driving financial results. Our proprietary time-based profit analytics provides hard data that allows M&A advisors to quantify otherwise invisible revenue and EBITDA opportunities that can materially increase enterprise value.
Identify your upside potential.
CEOs and CFOs considering an M&A transaction know they can make their businesses more attractive by documenting the upside potential in their product, customer and asset portfolios. Profit Velocity’s unique time-based profit analytics give CEOs and CFOs the facts they need to show by providing detailed profit-per-time analyses for each product, customer and machine.
