Private Equity – Consulting for Procurement & Supply Chain Management
Consulting to Promote Growth and Reduce Costs
We support investors throughout the entire investment process.
Private equity investors have known for a long time that financial engineering alone is no longer enough to significantly increase the value of their portfolio companies. Growth and cost reduction are the effective ways to increase value in their portfolios. Implementing the relevant programmes is expensive and usually cannot be done with internal capacity alone.
For many years, we have supported both market-leading, globally active British investors and medium-sized investors that concentrate on Germany, Austria and Switzerland. We support them throughout the entire investment process, from due diligence and operational value creation through to exit opportunities:
We support you with developing growth and cost reduction strategies
We identify and assess the procurement and supply chain potential for both individual holding companies and cross-portfolio firms, developing it conceptually and providing significant support during implementation. Our consultants in international offices provide valuable benchmarks using our database, contribute practical and methodological knowledge and project management experience and provide operative, pragmatic support for the procurement teams of portfolio companies through to supplier negotiation and allocation.
Using our 360° Supply Intelligence approach, we support both growth and cost reduction strategies for our customers:
Procurement is the primary requirement to improving profitability and reducing working capital.
– Material costs are divided into direct and indirect costs
– High individual potential is usually subject to 20-40% out of scope costs
– Optimization levers range from renegotiation programmes to cross-functional value analysis
– 4-6% savings on the entire procurement volume are realistic
*Industry output profitability is the major driver
Total savings achieved are typically between 4% and 6%.
