WPD & Agronomy

Lead manager / corporate advisor for the reconstruction and recovery of this rural merchandise retail agribusiness.

SBG Advisory was initially appointed to undertake a business planning process that led to a business reconstruction process to stem losses, rebuild relationships with creditors, and develop a plan for growth involving international trade. Our work involved evaluation of all elements of the business including financial analysis to establish trends and anomalies, improved stock movement / inventory management, pricing and reporting systems employed in the business and sector analysis including competition analysis and market trends.

Our forensic analysis in association with Accru Accounting identified solutions to protect gross margin and improve financial reporting. Our services included formative due diligence of an acquisition target that would be earnings accretive and support the recovery process.

The business reconstruction and recovery process was proven to be successful. The business has since been sold.
