We view strategic planning as a critical link between the owners’ strategic intent and the day-to-day actions of all employees. As an extension of your team, we immerse ourselves in the business to understand and manage your key business drivers. As your finance expert, we drive the strategic plan with the required financial analytics to set clear, visible expectations and drive accountability throughout the organization to achieve desired results.
Whether acquiring a company or preparing to sell yours, the M&A process is intensive, complex, and is very distracting from running the day-to-day business. Additionally, there are many players involved, including corporate attorneys, tax experts, CPAs, and bankers, each of which requiring oversight and coordination. AVL serves as your point-person to coordinate and drive the efforts of the deal team, drive due diligence, analyze structure alternatives, work with the buyer/target, and move towards a successful closing. We have significant buy-side and sell-side M&A experience to help assure that you obtain the desired value from the transaction.
Every business needs capital to fuel the engine. Your decision on how to obtain that capital has major long-term ramifications. We advise on the best capital alternatives for your business, as well as help you frame your business for your target investor, whether that is private equity, venture debt, or commercial lines of credit. Our team has raised capital totaling hundreds of millions of dollars from individual and institutional sources for start-ups and Fortune 100 companies.
High growth businesses often have multiple finance and accounting needs. Many growing businesses require capital, a continuously updated business plan and financial model, cash forecasts, tax planning and compliance needs, analysis of investment and alliance opportunities, and a need for better information on how the business is performing. When AVL’s role covers such a broad set of responsibilities, we are truly serving the CFO role.
New Business Launch
No company is too “early stage” for AVL. We help seed-stage and pre-revenue companies with entity formation, business plan development, preparation of investor pitch materials, and development of a pro forma financial model. We encourage early stage businesses to utilize our fractional finance and accounting services to provide access to experienced CFOs, Controllers, Accountants and Analysts, available on an “always on” basis. In most cases, we can provide a growing business with more expertise and in a more cost-effective manner compared to adding finance and accounting headcount.
Outsourced Finance & Accounting Operations
Our team of accountants, controllers, and other finance experts allow you to focus on your business and core competencies. We work with our clients closely to eliminate any concern of the accuracy, reliability, security, and thoroughness of their financial records. We are proactive, we analyze and interpret outcomes, and integrate historical accounting with forward looking forecasts to help focus efforts in the right areas. We ensure appropriate controls are in place, so that a foundation is set for the long-term.
