The GSL Group, LLC provides CFO-level financial consulting services for companies with no full time senior financial managers or for those needing additional bandwidth and external assistance (adding another management layer). This can include development of budgets and forecasts (strategic plans, annual budgets, quarterly updates, cash flow forecasts and sales pipelines) as well as analysis and recommendations (pricing, make vs. buy decisions, client acquisition strategies, financial implications of marketing strategies, and contract structuring).
It’s no surprise that capital is a primary driver of growth and creates or expands options. Whether you’re growing organically, through acquisitions, or are stunted by lack of capital, The GSL Group can help you develop an effective financing strategy, determine the optimal deal structure and help secure the capital necessary to advance your strategic and financial objectives.
Most of the time, you only get once chance to pitch an investor. Because of this, it is paramount that your pitch and due diligence documents are top-notch, especially in this economic environment where the competition for capital is fierce. Don’t forget, your documents also say something about management and who is, or will be, running the company! At GSL, we make sure you feel confident in delivering the highest quality collateral to your potential investors.
In addition to developing a strong business plan and pitch, we frequently engage in ongoing consulting, advisory board, or interim management roles with our clients. These relationships are typically structured around specific business development goals.
