Corporate Diagnosis

Corporations sometimes get used to their routines, becoming incapable of questioning themselves to change what is needed and adapt market's dynamics.

The corporate diagnosis is a complete company check-up, by an independent and unbiased view. We use the Socratic method of making questions to identify the weak points in the company’s management and routines.

The investigation is conducted through all company levels, in order to thoroughly understand the information and decision flows.

This diagnosis starts with the request of company’s usual data and reports, followed by interviews with select employees and managers.

Our impressions and suggestions are presented in a full report and discussed with the top management.

Loan profile restructuring and debt cost reduction

Many capital structures are possible, each with different levels of leverage. Even so, companies may not be maximizing their own resources.

To verify this matter, the first step is to prepare a detailed cash flow, determining the future income and disbursements, devising the best debt profile and scheme of payment.

Based on the financial information provided, we propose viable alternatives to be negotiated with banks and other credit institutions.

It is usually necessary to review the strategy after obtaining feedback from all parties involved in the negotiations.

Budget and Financial planning

Company’s Budget is a powerful management tool that allows a comprehensive understanding of the long-term challenges, such as the economic environment and the present and potential competitors.

PROFIT has also developed a simple and efficient system to monitor and predict the company’s short-term cash flow in the Treasury level. We coach the company's personnel to questioning its daily financial position, considering the needs of different departments at the same time.
