CASH FLOW IMPROVEMENT

Successful Turnaround Plan

Led the turnaround of a company which had over-reached following a period of rapid international expansion and was suffering from severe cash flow challenges.  Course corrected by realigning the business model to one that focused on fewer but higher quality products and services.  Injected funds through the sale of non-core assets. Delivered significant working capital improvements by introducing better billing systems, collections processes and reporting.   Improved reporting and reduced cost of finance by deploying a new global finance system and by simplifying the corporate structure in a properly documented, tax compliant way. Consequently, the business became strongly cash generative and the shareholders were well-rewarded through regular dividend distributions.
