As a business reaches maturity, robust processes and benchmarking are needed to meet the demands of shareholders, staff and corporate partners.

How we help

We guide you through key areas faced by mature businesses such as succession planning, employee engagement and talent development.

Market conditions could prompt reorganisation, restructuring and the need to innovate by developing new products or exploring new markets.

Even though an exit may be some way off, this is the time to start preparing for sale, by identifying the requirements of potential buyers and thinking about what you want from the business.

Set out below are some key considerations our more established clients have come across when developing a mature business.

  1. Is the succession of your business in safe hands?
  2. Are your investors working for you – providing you with the right advice and opportunities to helping you to remain strong in the market place?
  3. Are you starting to groom your company for sale – what is required and by when?
  4. Is your board effective in challenging and helping to move the company forward?
  5. Are you creating shareholders wealth – ensuring the financial information shows continued growth
