Change Management:

We help companies develop the capacity to continually change—and do so without buckling under the pressure of new ways of working or disrupting their ongoing business operations.

Today, companies face a long list of challenges. Workforce reductions. Tight budgets. Stagnant stock prices. And, of course, ever-increasing competition. As varied as they are, however, those challenges all point to one fundamental business imperative: Improve workforce productivity.

To be productive today, a workforce has to do much more than just “work harder ” and increase throughput. It must rapidly introduce and ramp up new business processes and technologies; learn new skills and tasks quickly; and increase efficiency to continuously reduce operating costs. At the same time, the company must be able to manage and support that type of productivity across the enterprise. V Global Holdings understands that such productivity is the result of many complex, interrelated factors, ranging from technology and processes to culture and incentive and reward systems. To drive productivity, companies must address those factors in an integrated fashion. And they must ensure that those factors come together at all three levels of the organization—the enterprise, the workforce and the individual—to create a complete productivity-enhancing environment.

Financial Management:

Finance Operations create the foundation for high-performance finance. Without an effective finance operations group, the other more advanced capabilities that all CFOs strive to obtain are difficult to achieve. Finance Operations solutions support the CFO with the planning and implementation of core back-office services, helping to increase operating efficiencies, improve services, streamline processes and drive cost reductions.

V Global Holdings can assist you in improving operational efficiency and transforming the finance function into a value-added services organization, thereby enhancing decision making and analysis that will enable the business to support growth.

  • Choosing Between Debt and Equity Financing

Before you begin trying to raise funds for your business, it is important to determine whether debt or equity financing is more appropriate for your needs. V Global Holdings has access to angel investors and a network of financial institutions to fund your business.

The first step is preparing a thoughtful business plan that identifies the opportunities for growth and outlines the financial costs of pursuing such opportunities. You will need to consider your company’s operating history and the degree of ownership you wish to maintain in order to determine what kind of capital is right for your business. You can then choose among various sources of funding and decide which would be the most efficient way to capitalize your company.

Debt Financing:

If your company has a solid operating history and ample assets, you may be able to secure a bank loan. When interest rates are low, as they have been recently, this can be a cost-effective way to finance business growth. When you borrow money, your cost is known and you don’t relinquish any ownership over your enterprise.

Senior debt is usually available only to companies with assets that can be pledged in case of default. Collateral might include business property, real estate or even accounts receivable. You also may use personal assets, such as a securities portfolio, to support a loan made to your company.1 Most young businesses will not qualify for senior debt.

Lenders generally require a history of cash flow generation that will be sufficient to pay the interest on the debt and eventually repay the principal.

Mezzanine Financing:

When you would prefer to finance growth with debt rather than with equity, but additional senior debt is no longer available to your company, you might consider mezzanine financing. Mezzanine financing is a form of “junior” or “subordinated” debt that fills the gap between equity issuance and senior debt loans. The appetite for mezzanine financing has risen in recent years because of a conservative senior debt market.

Mezzanine financing, which is repayable only after the senior debt has been paid, carries a higher interest rate than senior debt to compensate lenders for assuming greater risk. Those high-interest rates pose more operating risk than equity capital, which doesn’t require regular payouts. Frequently, subordinated debt is used for recapitalizations and acquisitions.

Equity Financing:

If you are leading a start-up that will not qualify for senior debt, equity capital may be the only practical way to finance growth. With equity financing, other parties purchase a stake in your business. Equity financing can come from non-professional investors, such as friends, family or industry colleagues, or from professional venture capitalists.

Other reasons might lead you to favor equity capital over debt. Even when interest rates are low, taking on debt increases operating risk because interest must be paid, in bad and good times alike. In addition, you might be reluctant to become over-leveraged by taking on large amounts of debt.

In the current economic climate, many lenders have become less eager to finance business growth. You might find that you are unable to borrow more than three times your company’s cash flow, versus the loans of up to four times cash flow that were available in the 1990s. If you reach a ceiling on borrowing, raising equity capital may become necessary.

Keep in mind that debt and equity capital can work together. Raising sufficient equity capital may strengthen your company’s balance sheet and allow access to senior debt. On the other hand, once you have reached certain levels of debt, you may find that raising equity capital is the only feasible way to finance additional growth.

Selecting the optimal mix of funding sources can be difficult. V Global Holdings can help develop an integrated plan, based upon your unique circumstances, to most efficiently raise the capital you need to support a growing business.
