  • Business Plans:

    Excelsior has the requisite industry knowledge and expertise to develop comprehensive strategies, business plans, and quantified future projections.

Business plans and projections serve as a practical guide to achieve a company's goals and objectives in a measurable and quantified manner. We prepare balance sheets, income statements and sales projections after considering the qualitative and quantitative risk factors associated with any business.

  • Business Budgeting and Forecasting:

    To effectively monitor performance a company needs to develop timely and accurate plans and budgets that are aligned with their strategic goals. At Excelsior we help businesses streamline their budgeting and forecasting needs and provide customized solutions to those companies. We can help improve budget cycle times, ensure compliance with industry standards and reduce associated costs.

    An increasingly essential business strategy, Excelsior helps companies set up joint ventures with global and/or local partners. We help prospect and evaluate potential future partners and aid in the designing process and procedures to optimize operational effectiveness and profitability.

  • Mergers and Acquisitions:

    We help companies secure the synergies and benefits necessary to make acquisition a desirable strategy. From pre-acquisition launch readiness to post-acquisition planning and execution, we help maintain a focus on the operating outcomes underpinning the acquisition approach. This includes reducing the period of uncertainty following the transaction and accelerating assimilation.
