Why might you need us?

Are you a potential acquirer of a business with treasury risks (liquidity, foreign exchange) and potential inefficiencies (banking, systems)?

Do you have the challenge of establishing a new treasury function from scratch?

How can we help?

Dakota Advisory diligence reviews will:

  • Identify the target company's existing treasury management requirements, and any potential red-flags;

  • Outline the process, reporting and policy changes that will be required post acquisition; and

  • Provide a road-map and indicative costing.

Following successful acquisition we often assist the acquirer to implement our recommendations.

Case Study

We have been supporting a private equity sponsor complete several M&A transactions in recent years.

Each project has commenced with a due diligence report that has identified challenges, red flags and opportunities.

Following deal closure, we have supported (on an interim Treasurer basis) the new finance team to:

  • Gain control and visibility of existing bank accounts and card services;

  • Open new accounts as required by debt financing;

  • Establish controls and processes including reconciliation and payments;

  • Develop short and longer term cash flow forecasting models;

  • Document, close or novate as appropriate bank guarantees, letter of credit and other financing products; and

  • Embed a management structure to support the new reporting framework and processes.

Each project generally involved a short (2-4 weeks) review followed by 3-6 months implementation phase ensuring treasury operations are embedded.
