The transformation of Jeffery’s business

When we first started working with Jeffery (not his real name), his business had a high turnover and was making a substantial profit.

Jeffery received an offer to purchase a part of his business, he went through due diligence and the prospective buyer decided not to proceed with the purchase.

Although his business was making good money, it was not valuable!

This did not make sense to Jeffery as he had worked very hard, for many years, to build a profitable business. 

Every entrepreneur wants a valuable business, but the value of your business is not only determined by your turnover, assets or profit.

Jeffery’s deal fell through due to the fact that he had nothing in place. More than half of his client contracts were not complete, he had no templates for new transactions, his suppliers were not tied down and his employees (23 at the time) had no employment contracts.  To name but a few risks!

These risks effectively eroded what a third party was willing to pay for Jeffery’s business.  It eroded the value that he had worked so hard to establish and grow over the years!

Shimazu started working with Jeffery to put everything in place, to build his internal systems and his engagement models with clients, key suppliers, employees and other parties.   We also secured his most important resources and licenses through fixed contacts. 

Over the next year, Jeffery’s business started to transform…

Jeffery’s turnover increased with 73%, his profit is still very high, he has less disputes and uncertainty and he now has a much more valuable business.

In fact, when the buyer came around for the second time, Jeffery refused a higher offer, because even Jeffery knew that his business had become more sustainable, more capable of replicating the same results, had the right engagement system in place and was, finally, more valuable than Jeffery could ever have imagined!
