The 4Value Service

Different situation require different priorities, developing a strategy is different from creating a turnaround plan. Considering an add-on acquisition is different from evaluating strategic options like JV or a sale of the company. There is no use for a cookie-cutter approach. 4Value Advisors developed basic processes for each of these special situations and we work with our clients to further customize each step on the way.

specific question important to your company

• On-side situation analysis or position assessments lasting a few days to several weeks

and execution plan development.

The 4Value Approach

We believe every Management Team consist of subject matter experts who know what needs to be done but are sometimes consumed by day-to-day tasks or “fire fighting”. It is difficult for an executive to find the time or to free up the right resources to focus on strategic planning and developing a detailed value creation plan. With our hands on approach we provide the resources, proven processes and experience to support the team and accelerate shareholder value creation. We team up with management, identify and kick off initiatives, create actions plans, establish KPIs and implementation tracking processes. When this is done we get out of their way to let them do what they are good at, running the company

We also believe owners and company boards are the experts and have the knowledge as well as the experience to provide strategic direct and oversight for management. But not all owners or boards have experience in mergers & acquisition. We provide objective advice in the early stages of the option evaluation process which, in some cases, has to be kicked-off years before a transaction tasks place. We help to get the company read for sale and act as independent advisors throughout the execution process.
