We only have one objective: sharing the knowledge in corporate finance that we have gathered in the last twenty years. We are S4FG (solutions for financial growth)
Everyone knows a little bit but about finance. People like to trade stocks in the market, ask for a loan to finance the acquisition of a house or even invest in some projects on a personal basis and have their own opinion if an investment is good or bad
However, our experience is that there are significant gaps when finance decisions needs to be taken at a corporate level and big mistakes are more normal than exceptional
There are recent studies that demonstrate that M&A only creates value for sellers, the majority of the restructurings fail, business plans are hardly met and leverage is extremely dangerous
Our goal is to share with you some of our knowledge which could be helpful for your organisation in order to transmit the importance of finance decisions not only for the finance department but for the whole organisation
Selection of one topic per week
Online program + One workshop at the end
Online program + Two workshops (one at the beginning and one at the end)
Tailor made program (online vs workshops)
Duration depending on customer interest
If any of the previous topics have shown interested for you when you have read them, we are sure that it will be suitable.
The next step is to decide which products fit best with your criteria and objectives. Call us and we can help you to decide
From our experience, all of them are of special relevance within the organisations although depending on the audience some of them could fit better than othersSome examples include:
- If your Board of Directors has approved a new business plan that will include inorganic growth, the modules regarding advance valuation or alternatives of paying with cash or shares could make sense
- For your Board of Directors, it might make sense the fairness opinion or shall I vote in favour of this deal from a financial standpoint
- For all private equity new analysts, knowing sell side process is critical in order
- For small and medium sized companies that are suffering the impact of the Covid-19, it might make sense
- For top management teams (CEO and CFO) of large listed companies, advance M&A and can this merger create value are the best ones
- For companies eager to look for private capital, it could be interesting to have the module, is a financial investor a good partner
Each of them can be quoted to be done individually or in groups
