This capability ranges from independent assessment of business plans to developing independent banking cases and company evaluations. Each of these assessments include a detailed examination of national and regional market trends, with pricing, competition and market access issues. Furthermore, we typically provide detailed demand and revenue forecasts by target regions and applications, and in-depth reviews of contracting terms and practices. We have performed such work for lenders toward new financings and refinancing of ongoing businesses as well as for equity investors to support their consideration of new systems or of mergers or acquisitions.
This includes a detailed assessment of the company's historic and current commercial and financial performance; an analysis of the company's strategy; a review of its key assets including satellites, orbital slots, and frequency rights, ground networks, etc.; as well as competitive strengths and weaknesses (SWOT analysis). The assessment also typically includes a review of relationships with suppliers, partners, distributors, etc., and a detailed review/assessment of key customers.
If available, our assessment often includes a critical independent review of the company's existing business plan, its underlying assumptions and the resulting projected financial/commercial projections as presented by the company's management. Key elements that are typically reviewed include assumptions on market growth, fill rates, pricing, revenue, as well as the cost structure (marketing, operating costs...), profit margins, future capex requirements to support the company's growth strategy, and other elements as relevant.
Based on the assessment in the aforementioned parts, we provide an independent forecast on the company/project's revenues and profits
