Improve your turnaround’s forecast for long-term success
Abstract: Companies struggling with poor cash flow, inadequate capital and weak leadership are particularly vulnerable to economic downturns and today’s global business challenges. To turn an unprofitable company around, new owners must have a plan and be ready to implement it as soon as the ink on the deal is dry. As this article discusses, a buyer’s plan should include divestiture of unprofitable segments, a long-term cash management plan and a review of accounting and reporting systems. It also suggests ways for sellers of troubled businesses to prepare for buyer scrutiny.
