Profit Improvement & Turnaround Management

For over 20 years now, members of TOP’s team have successfully undertaken profit improvement and turnaround management assignments on behalf of private equity investors, EIS funded companies and private shareholders. Companies typically range in size from £2 million to £30 million turnover and from 10 staff to 600 staff and have covered a wide variety of sectors including retail, electronic and mechanical engineering, television production, distribution, construction, facilities management and services. With the exception of retailing, the vast majority of the companies we have assisted so far have been business-to-business rather than business-to-consumer operations.

Sometimes we are parachuted in to a crisis or interim management situation where a key member of the management team is no longer there, for whatever reason. However, most assignments will firstly involve a preliminary free meeting followed by a ‘quick and dirty’ (2-5 day) review after which we present a verbal report of our findings and recommendations and a candid assessment of whether the business has sufficient prospects to merit our continued involvement. Often a full investigation will then ensue that aims to corroborate the initial findings and develop the bones of the recommendations into a workable action plan.

Then we ‘make it happen’.
