At The Securieon Group, we shy away from the phrase, “Hindsight is 2020” (in fact, we’re probably like most of the world, wanting to forget just about everything related to “2020”). We instead adhere to a forward-thinking approach, particularly when it comes to preparing for what might lie ahead; for example, a possible recession.
The definition of foresight is “the ability to predict or the action of predicting what will happen or be needed in the future.” Businesses that are smart and those that will be most likely to survive tough times if they come are those that anticipate and plan for the future as they’re planning for worst-case scenarios.
When companies like Meta (the tech giant formerly known as Facebook) announce layoffs of over 11,000 employees, Amazon pauses hiring in its corporate workforce, and even Apple implements a hiring freeze as part of cost-cutting measures, it has to give other businesses pause. Yet it’s times like these that businesses must be the most proactive in terms of preparing for a worst-case scenario, even if it never comes.
Head winds may be coming, but they can be buffered with the proper mitigation strategy in place. If your business doesn't have the proper resources in place to develop that strategy, the Securieon Group can help. Side-stepping additional headcount, we provide the consultative guidance to help you capitalize on taking a deep dive into your current financials, overall business strategy and operations to see where there might be room for improvement – and even accelerate performance and growth.
Is your business currently cash flow positive? Are you meeting or exceeding your margin goals? Are you understanding industry metrics (and meeting them)? At the Securieon Group, we have years of multi-industry experience providing strategic direction and guidance on financial prudence and can serve as your financial management pre-crisis advisory firm. If your business is not currently at least on par with your industry, now is the time to address what needs to be done before another economy-shaking event strikes.
If you need a thorough assessment of your business’s financial activities and capital investment decisions, our corporate finance and strategic planning insight will provide your organization with direction, ultimately giving your company a competitive advantage – even in a downturn in the economy.
Whether you’re interested in restructuring your enterprise, establishing strategic partnerships or increasing revenue growth, our corporate finance experts analyze proposed investments, including options such as paying for the investment with equity, debt or a hybrid of both. Our extensive network of capital providers differentiates our corporate finance business consulting from other advisory firms. Our corporate finance services include:
Rather than becoming a victim, our team at the Securieon Group will help your business mitigate risks during challenging times by conducting a thorough assessment of company-wide operations, logistics, labor and human capital. We will then strategically identify areas in which you can -- and should -- be running more efficiently. Especially in times of potential upheaval, you need to be cautious where you're spending your money and valuable resources, as well as where you're putting your focus.
Company restructuring occurs more often than business leaders will admit. Look at us much like you would a retained therapist, as many privately held companies require an outside, objective advisor void of emotion, yet empathetic to leadership experiencing challenging times. The Securieon Group provides expertise in the following areas:
