Business Advisory

Business Advisory

Our business advisory services help enhance the value of our clients’ businesses by working with the Board and management in a number of situations. We are comfortable working with companies in a variety of circumstances, such as early stage growth, expansion, spin-off and restructuring situations, including turnarounds and “rightsizing”.

We build management and Board strength in a variety of ways. We source seasoned independent Board members and/or managers whose expertise will add value. We sit on clients’ Boards ourselves, and sometimes act as interim senior managers. Our principals have experience investing in and advising many private and public companies. Leveraging our experience we provide clients with realistic and effective strategies that deliver measurable results.

The most important factor in building and sustaining a successful business is a qualified and dedicated management team. It is a regular feature of business life, however, that companies experience management gaps. James Edward can fill those gaps. Our professionals routinely step into businesses and act as CEO, CFO, EVP Sales and EVP Marketing. Interim management provides stabilization, continuity and advancement for companies in transition.

Companies in financial difficulty often have no cash management or asset financing strategy. Many companies use their operating lines to fund all activities of the business including fixed assets. Their cash flow analysis and forecasting capabilities are often incomplete and consequently they do not manage their borrowing in line with the natural cycle of their business and/or the life of their asset base.

James Edward does not function as monitors, receivers or bankruptcy trustees. Our financial and corporate restructuring expertise resides in enhancing the value of assets and in structuring and executing a financial plan and corporate organization that will ensure sustainable growth and value creation.
