HRC Rapid EBITDA Assessment
HRC Retail Advisory’s Rapid EBITDA Assessment is an intensive 4-6 week assessment of all key retail functions. It examines processes, organization structures, key tools to optimize margins, inventory performance and the functions and performance of key roles in the organization. We measure clients’ operations against relevant leading retail performers and conduct the necessary analytics to identify and prioritize Value-Creation opportunities. Our focus is to identify both strategic cost reductions and margin/sales improvements that will support and enhance a retailer’s shareholder value and P&L for both the short and long term, while preserving each retailer’s unique culture and value proposition.
The output from HRC’s Rapid EBITDAAssessment is a set of high-value, practical findings for enhanced earnings through a combination of Cost Reduction, Strategic Cost Redeployment and Sales, Margin and Working Capital Enhancement.
Following the HRC Rapid EBITDAAssessment, our advisors guide our clients, working alongside their team to ensure that identified performance improvements are effectively implemented. We incorporate the new practices into the following year’s budget process and strategic plans to ensure they are operationalized and to embed accountability.
HRC Advisory’s clients typically achieve a significant ROI and earnings multiple on their one-time investment in our fees within the first full year following the implementation of approved recommendations.
