Working Capital Management
In a recessionary economic climate and in times of fast economic growth alike, liquidity is what makes or breaks a business. We can help your company to maximize cash flow through analysis and recommendations to improve:
- Gross margins
- Inventory management
- Billing and accounts receivables
- Accounts payables
- General and administrative expenses
- Financing Decisions
As the recent credit market contraction clearly demonstrated, longer-term financing options constrain and drive investment decisions, and even the overall business strategy. A prudent match between the expected business activities and financing will enable your business to successfully execute your business strategy with fewer distractions. Blackseed Investments Management can help you sleep better by analyzing your current business strategy and financing, and, if necessary, advising you on how to structure new financing or re-structure your existing capital structure. If your company already has a complex debt structure in place, we can help you to understand where you stand with your lenders through a comprehensive Debt Compliance Analysis.
Blackseed Investments Management team has in-depth experience providing independent analyses of investment projects and business cases. We can provide you with a realistic assessment of an investment, determining if it will add to or subtract from economic value of your business. Our consultants are skilled at creating financial models that take into account your company’s cost of capital, project’s cash flow projections, probabilities of outcome and risk factors.
Your company can also benefit from expert outside analysis of various other aspects of your business, which are used in a variety of situations:
- Scenario Analysis
- Sensitivity Analysis
- Valuation Modeling
- Company Sales & Divestitures
