How we can help you
Outsource CFO services

Make sure that your company is capable of making monthly financial statement reporting
Make sure that monthly financial statements are true, accurate, and timely
Construct the breakdown of the value drivers of your business that makes up your financial statements
Use the financial statements to produce financial projections
Incorporate the value drivers and financial statements into a financial model of your company to estimate the value of your company
Work with the management team to create the information needed to present the company in a favorable way to outside investors
Help negotiate good terms in any future sale of securities
Protect the interests of the founders, CEO, management team, employees, and shareholders
Train your management team to become Financially World Class
In every business, there are areas where performance is sub-optimal. We provide the training and tools necessary to empower management teams to improve the value of their business significantly by becoming financially world class.
World Class Benchmarking scorecard
The World Class Benchmarking scorecard is simple, focused, and team building. The scorecard is used to track and support your process to become financially world class. It helps you balance the competing pressures of profitability and growth, Profitable Growth increases the value of your business.
We can value your business, no matter if it is just for your own knowledge or for presenting to prospective investors. We can also help you value other companies that you may consider investing in.
We create an attractive pitch deck for you, which is structured in a way that is attractive to investors. The pitch deck focuses on “selling” your proposed investment rather than giving all necessary information to potential investors, which the information memorandum does.
We create your information memorandum (IM). The IM is a collection of information that tells the reader everything they need to know to make an informed decision about engaging with a business. It is complete and attractive enough to motivate an investor to want to invest in the business. An interested investor should not need to follow up with the company with further questions.
The IM is different from a pitch deck, which has more to do with getting people excited about the vision and opportunity of the business. A successful IM means that the buyer will encounter no surprises when they move into the due diligence process.
Coaching you and presenting with you
We can make Dr. Stotz available to coach you in, for example, capital raising and attending important meetings with large investors. We have coached others in the past, and that has led to double the expected exit value.
