Growth Planning

  • Set concrete operational objectives
  • Planning and managing growth
  • How can growth be financed?

  • Cashflow planning for the growth

KPIs

KPIs don’t begin and end at turnover, return and profit. Rather, they tell the story of your business. Square Mile will help you to identify, measure and manage the Key Performance Indicators which are not simply generated from your management accounts. Monitoring and controlling the performance of your business is of utmost importance and regular management information is crucial to your business success. By boiling your business down to a handful of objective numbers, you can get an accurate sense of the health of your business.

In other words, get rid of all the feelings, personalities, opinions, and egos and focus on objective numbers that give you a real sense of where your business stands.

  • Find out what drives your business objectives
  • Identify the data sources and processes needed to support KPIs
  • Visualise the data live to understand the big picture
  • Develop a management team capable of interpreting and taking action

Investment Modelling

Investment modelling provides reliable and understandable information about the future of your business. Our investment modelling can forecast your likely return on investment and help you understand the impact of decisions before you make them. Many businesses are unaware of what investors are looking for and so miss out on vital investments because they’re unprepared. We’ll present the information to you in an intuitive, clear way so that you are able to make decisions.

  • Business valuation
  • Scenario planning and decision making
  • Capital budgeting
  • Financial statement analysis
  • Project finance

Exit Strategy/Value Maximisation

  • Our goal is to engage early on (12 -18 months in advance), so that we can control the key drivers in a way that maximizes business value for funding or exit
  • We help you to understand the value of your business
  • Our team walks you through the key negotiation points and prepares you
  • We assist you when negotiating with a buyer or seller
