Private Equity

Value creation for your portfolio companies.

Private equity investors are constantly focused on creating higher levels of sustained enterprise values for portfolio companies. Transitional strategies can require many complex projects over the investment cycle that play into NextLevel’s expertise, such as operational improvements to maximize cash flow and profitability, consolidation of existing or integration of new business units, recapitalizations, divestitures and exit execution.

Managing the unique financial and operational needs of multiple portfolio companies in transition requires specific skills. Successful private equity companies recognize the need for:

  • A CEO, COO, CFO, or CIO well versed in the transitional issues faced by private equity companies
  • Prompt set up and implementation of performance monitoring systems and forecasting tools
  • Leadership that can drive growth and spur dramatic improvement in operational efficiency and profit improvement
  • Completing strategic projects on time and on budget
