BE-PACT stands for Business Excellence Profit And Cash Turnaround.
We are an independent management team and consultancy that specializes and has experience in successfully turning around European companies that operate the manufacturing and business services sectors.
At the request of our clients, we identify and implement turnaround strategies for companies in distressed or loss-making situations - often caused by adverse financial and/or operational conditions, despite enjoying a good market reputation and position - and manage the business back to financial health. Underperformance could have been the outcome of strategic and/or succession issues, changing industry conditions, resulting in a declining operating performance and cash flow.
BE-PACT offers the same approach to healthy companies in their quest for Business and Performance Excellence – often triggered by changing market conditions (competition) or the company itself (reorganization).
Our approach is to thoroughly understand the dynamics of the business and the sector(s) in which it operates, and to identify the potential for improvement, develop an action plan (the 'master plan') to restore or improve profitability, generate positive cash flow and to establish a robust platform for the long-term sustainable success of the business through implementing Continuous Improvement, based on Lean Thinking principles. The BE-PACT approach covers this process at every stage from initial diagnosis to final implementation, with the BE-PACT team working closely with, and complementing the company’s management team during the implementation stage.
Additionally, BE-PACT can support expanding companies in Business Development activities, both Greenfield (setting up new facilities from business planning to implementation) and Brownfield (operational due diligence in acquisitions/M&A).
Furthermore, if required,BE-PACT is prepared to consider participating and (co)-investing, either on a standalone basis or in co-operation and partnership with other interested (financial) parties.
With our proven track record in successfully turning around unprofitable businesses, our experience in a number of industries and our cohesive team, we can provide a rapid and effective implementation.
BE-PACT is a valuable partner for turnaround situations in the quest for Business and Performance Excellence.
