Our unit

The creation of value is the real determinant element in a company’s business and its ability to remain competitive and valid over time.

To stay at this level one needs to use the entire value chain in an integrated way, maintain a strategic design that is both challenging and balanced at the same time, coherent operations and a solid organization, in which everyone is in a position to make the difference.

In this systemic dimension, Corporate Finance is a key area in all the company’s management processes that lead to value generation.  Realizing this we have decided us to support the areas of “Strategy and Organization” and “Business Development” with an international team of experts in Finance to integrate our consulting services and allow us to offer our clients, not only specific, strategic, industrial and organizational sector competencies, but also reliable financial and methodological instruments to identify the most appropriate solutions to maximize value generation.

We offer assistance in defining both Corporate level value generation projects and single business units in which we will operate to redesign processes and structures to develop business models based on performance management that focuses on value creation.

We manage M&A projects, so we can assess strategic value to identify which operations can really reinforce your company’s position and include the levers and potential to generate adequate commercial, industrial and technological synergies.  We do operative due diligence and assist management over the post-transaction periods to create the base to maximize the value of the operation to you.

We assist our clients in designing and realizing Alliances and Joint Ventures, by carrying out compatibility analyses, helping in defining a correct strategic imposition and clear rules on which to base the share the value which is generated.
