Investor Procurement

We work with investors by providing procurement management services, primarily bringing indirect costs down. We also assist with due diligence, preparing a business for sale and even turning floundering businesses around and back to profitability.

While we aren’t sector specific, we have partnerships with a number of pre-approved suppliers, enabling us to identify cost reductions and implement them fast.

Our clients include:

  • Private equity investors
  • Venture capitalists
  • Activist shareholders
  • Fund managers

Financial due diligence

Our procurement specialists will always conduct a thorough cost analysis of existing expenses. We’ll identify potential procurement savings, and support your business valuation report.

100-day Plan

We work closely with investment/portfolio management to maximise investments. We are effective and fast. Our contribution to indirect cost reductions frees others up to focus on business growth.

Ongoing procurement management

We’re affiliated with the Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply so best-practice procurement processes are always applied. Contracts are managed and cost reductions continually sought.

Business recovery

Some of the best investments are businesses that can do better with improved management. With our database of pre-approved suppliers, we can directly impact the bottom line of any business within just four weeks.

Planned exits

Where planned timetables are in place to sell a business, we’ll put managed procurement plans in place to support it. If you’re already part way through, don’t delay in talking to us. The sooner we get aboard, the faster we can strip costs down and improve your accounts for a better ROI on exit.

Quality Control Throughout

You retain full control over choice of vendors. We guarantee that quality will never be compromised. All recommendations will match or exceed current service level agreements and payment or credit terms.
