COLLECT BASELINE METRICS REFLECTING CURRENT BUSINESS PERFORMANCE AND VALUE

Screen Baseline Metrics
 

Financial metrics reflecting current client performance will be defined within EvaluSys.

Current business enterprise value assumptions will be input to develop an as-is business value projection for the client.

DEFINE VALUE CONTRIBUTION OF RECOMMENDED GROWTH ACTIONS

Network Advisors will be asked to identify how each individual recommended Value Growth Action will contribute to growth of the client's enterprise value over a 5-year planning horizon.

Value contribution will include:

  • Increased Earnings
  • Improved Quality of Earnings
  • Required Investment (to complete the recommended action)

The combined value contribution of all Value Growth Actions will be illustrated in a 5-Year Enterprise Value Growth Projection. The earnings and investment components will be plotted on a 2-Year Investment Vs. Earnings Growth Projection.
