EIM enhances value by providing the best management solution at every phase of a private equity transaction: evaluating a potential portfolio company, building a portfolio company and selling a portfolio company.
First, in evaluating a potential portfolio company, its management and operations, the challenge is often to obtain intrinsic and unique proprietary information to best assess present and future enterprise value. EIM provides talented experts with appropriate business knowledge who will assess the management team, the operational processes and the specific business issues, sometimes with experience from within the portfolio company. EIM can also provide a NED to prepare an acquisition, or a CEO for a Management Buy-In.
Secondly, in owning a portfolio company, EIM assists by providing executive resourcing for performance improvement or turnaround solutions. Interim or permanently placed executives provided by EIM support, coach or replace the management team at short notice, when time is critical.
Finally, in selling a portfolio company, the management team often needs to be balanced for best value at exit. In short, EIM offers management solutions to prepare for a listing or management to help out in the exit transaction itself. Finally, EIM makes sure that management is aligned with the owner’s and/or seller’s agenda.
