Retooling Client’s Exit Plan to Increase Value 450%
(Strategic Planning) – The two owners ofan automotive parts company asked Janas to assess the value of their company. The owners concluded that if they sold immediately and retired, they would both run out of money inside five years. They engaged Janas to review their options which ranged from making acquisitions to expanding the Company’s capabilities by opening operations in Mexico or China. Janas quantified the potential of each option. But during the assessment, the owners revealed that they had a breakthrough approach to robotics that would dramatically reduce their tooling and capital costs on new programs. Janas recommended that the other strategic options be put on hold and provided consulting services to prepare the business for growth and eventual sale. Three years later the business sold for 450% of its original appraised value.
