Strategic Transaction Services

Moving from operational growth to liquidity requires strong financial management and accounting excellence, and CRCFO can help you prepare your business for liquidity through a merger, acquisition or IPO. Potential merger partners or acquirers will expect you to demonstrate strong financial controls, and CRCFO can put in place the policies and procedures that will make your business attractive to potential M&A partners. We can also help you prepare for an initial public offering so you can demonstrate to the capital markets the efficiencies of your business and the attractiveness of your financial prospects.

IPO Preparation & Readiness

Preparing for a public offering is a watershed event for any company, with executives often overwhelmed by the complexity of the rules and regulations for accounting, taxes and compliance at a time when the sheer volume of work required can be overwhelming. CRCFO prepares clients for IPOs so that the management team does not become distracted from their primary responsibilities. Our best practices methodology deploys seasoned technical accounting CFOs to get your financial house in order—so you can command maximum valuation in the marketplace. By engaging CRCFO, you can rely on experienced professionals who have travelled the IPO route many times before to complete a fruitful public offering.

Mergers & Acquisitions

An M&A transaction is an increasingly common occurrence in today’s business environment. But regardless of the size of the transaction, most companies are not fully prepared to maximize the value of the deal and should consider expert M&A advice. Whether you are doing the acquiring-or being acquired-our exit planning consultants help you prepare and optimize your financial performance before entering into negotiations so you can achieve the highest valuation and the most financial benefit from the transaction.

Mergers and acquisitions create value only when the value of synergies exceeds the acquisition premium paid, and CRCFO has a proven methodology for assisting our clients in identifying and unlocking the full value potential of a merger or acquisition. This includes enhancing revenue and asset efficiency, reducing operating expenses and the cost of capital as well as tightly monitoring post merger integration costs. Industry-specific benchmarks and synergy opportunity checklists enable us to identify areas with the greatest value potential so you can optimize the value of your M&A transactions.

Divestitures

CRCFO uses a risk-based approach to supporting client divestitures.  Whether the divestiture is a strategic spin-off or the sale of assets that no longer align with the mission of the company; divestiture requires addressing how to effectively separate and account for the assets and processes of the unit being spun out. Because CRCFO combines the talents of its technical team with the skills of its operational team, our clients not only get the technical accounting support of pre- and post-spinout, but how to manage the change in processes and their impact on the remaining company.
