When required, we provide access to qualified candidates to enhance our clients’ management teams and boards of directors. We have a deep network of candidates that add visibility, industry reach, and new business development to our clients. The potential additions to clients’ management teams or boards of director provide the knowledge, expertise, and talent that can accelerate the growth trajectory of their businesses.
We provide a comprehensive range of restructuring activities for clients geared towards increasing shareholder value, including refocusing corporate assets, spinning off assets, and reorganizing operations to create regional presence.
Our clients take advantage of our corporate development services for two main reasons. First, we can help improve the overall operating and financial performance of your company by enhancing management and the board of directors. We have an extensive network of experienced executives that can bring a deep knowledge of the cannabis industry to the table. Second, we can analyze and help invest in new strategic initiatives that include mergers, acquisitions, and strategic divestures.
We can determine whether corporate development efforts are effective by assessing a multitude of factors. For example, high customer retention rates and low employee turnover are great benchmarks for determining successful business and operational efficiency. We also want to see steady revenue growth and higher margins on internal rate of return exceeding the company's required rate of return.
