Services
play a major role in all modern economies: an efficient services sector is considered to
be crucial for trade and economic growth and for dynamic and resilient economies . Services provide vital support to the economy as a whole and more specifically to industry, for example through finance, logistics and communications.Increased trade in services and the widespread availability of services may boost economic growth by improving the performance of other industries, since services can provide key intermediate inputs, especially in an increasingly interlinked and globalised world.

Realising the full value of your business
When it comes time to transition out of your business, you want to do it on your own terms.
Planning an exit strategy requires careful consideration of the options available. Thorough planning is essential. The goal is to ensure your business is in the best position to reap the benefits.
Key questions to consider during the process include:

  • What exit strategy is best for you and your business?
  • Should you consider an external sale, a transition to family or management, private equity or another option?
  • If you manage a family business, will family members play a role when you step away?
  • Have you positioned and structured your business to get the best value from a sale?
  • Have you considered the impact of a sale on your personal wealth and how you will manage it?
  • How will the path to exit be managed?
  • Do you know what risks could eventuate and how you will handle them?
  • How will you identify and attract a potential purchaser?

Proactively planning your personal and business exit strategy – even if it’s not implemented well into the future - will give you more clarity, consistency and direction on how to best achieve the result you desire. It’ll also ensure any decisions you make are best for your business: minimising risk and maximising value.
LIPEACE can work with you to effectively plan an exit strategy. We can help:

  • Assess the saleability of the business
  • Optimise the sales process to maximise value
  • Identify purchasers
  • Structure the sale
  • Advise family on business transition
  • Prepare for succession planning
  • Provide private wealth advice.

Ensure your exit strategy realises the full value of your business. Get in touch with a LIPEACE adviser today.

Support to keep large private business on track

The nature of business today means there are rarely enough resources - time, finances or knowledge - for your management team to be experts in everything.
Often, it’s useful to have advisers who can provide an objective view, test management ideas, provide specialist guidance on critical business issues, and fill any skill set gaps. 
LIPEACE’s private business experts can provide that point of view. We specialize in working alongside the owners and the management teams of large businesses, providing a flexible approach to obtaining the advice and insights you need.
Contact our team today to learn more about how we could tailor an advisory approach to the needs of your business.



 

Is your business strategy still relevant?
For a large private business, a business strategy is the roadmap to future success. Failing to review it or make sure it’s still guiding you in the right direction can expose a business to new and unexpected risks.
Just as important is whether or not your leadership and managers agree the roadmap for the future. If not, there could be many counter-productive decisions being made without you even realising it.
Making the effort to regularly review your business strategy and ensure alignment across all necessary elements of your operations could be the best time you spend ‘on’ your business.
LIPEACE can work with you to review your strategic position, develop a course of action and put in place a framework for execution.  At all times, our focus is on understanding your business goals and achieving strategic success.
Services we use to assist in this process include:
  • Clarifying shareholder and stakeholder expectations
  • Business conditions and market analysis
  • Scenario planning
  • Financial and business analysis
  • Forecasting

A clear strategy provides clarity for your board, management and staff, and ensures alignment behind a common direction. Find out how you can achieve this for your business by contacting a LIPEACE adviser today.

    Getting the most from your people
    You’ve heard it all before. Your workforce is your biggest asset and engaging your workforce is critical for business success. But are you confident you’ve got the right people, with the right skills, in the right roles, making the right decisions to help you achieve your business objectives?

    Expansion goals
    Growing a business in a highly competitive business environment can be challenging. Whether your objective is to expand into new markets (domestically
    or offshore), introduce new products or launch a new business, you must have a clear business case and plan for attracting investment and finance.
    Access to capital is often a barrier to growth and expansion. If your business is
    not appealing to potential investors – from either inside or outside the business - you’ll be hard pressed to attract the funds you need.
    Our specialists can help you prepare for and attract investment by identifying whether your business:

    • Has clearly defined expansion plans that an investor can understand
    • Is structured optimally
    • Is performing at its best
    • Has the right people in the required roles
    • Has relevant strategies and plans.

    Using these insights, we can tailor services to facilitate the growth and expansion process to help:

    • Refine growth and expansion plans
    • Execute strategy and monitor performance
    • Develop financial modelling
    • Define capital requirements and secure funding
    • Align people and process to strategy
    • Prepare effective business and taxation structuring.

      MULTIPLYING ITC SUPPORT TO ENTERPRISES :
      Lipeace’s tailor - made and sector development  approaches to  supporting enter-   prises reach a limited number of companies worldwide.
      To  broaden  the  organization’s reach , Lipeace Co. LLc  develops systemsbased   programmes  that  promote a  multiplier  approach to  supporting  enterprises for   export  development . By  accrediting  TSIs  to  run  systems  in  their   respective   countries ,  Lipeace Co. empowers  institutions  with  a competitive  advantage to   replicate ITC’s methodology and , therefore , ITC services are delivered indirectly.

      Mainstream inclusiveness and sustainability into trade promotion and export   development :
      Trade is widely recognized as an important contributor to economic growth.   However , export  growth  does  not  automatically  translate  into human develop   ment and is therefore not an end in itself .  ITC actively integrates human  develop
      ment objectives into its TRTA activities with particular emphasis on gender , poor   communities and the environment.


Are you actively managing risk?
Having a good corporate governance framework in place is vital for managing risk, workplace behaviour, and ethical decision making. It helps the business to demonstrate good corporate citizenship through the actions of management and staff and their interactions with other stakeholders of the business.
Without such a framework, corners may be cut – potentially leaving the business vulnerable to complacency, financial strain, and unwanted legal disputes.
At LIPEACE we can help you to:

  • Review the management decision making and reporting framework
  • Review the composition, skills and experience of the Board, relative to the strategic direction
  • Identify gaps in governance policies
  • Develop a risk management and reporting framework
  • Prepare crisis management, disaster recovery and business continuity plans

Talk to a  LIPEACE adviser today to find out how you can manage risk and set a framework for future growth through your governance model.
