The Situation

The company was threatened due to the emergence of Uber and the ensuing impact on taxi patronage.  The Directors were unable to see a pathway forward in the face of this industry revolution.

Climb Business worked with the Board and senior management to review the business and its risk areas. We developed a strategic plan and followed through with practical initiatives needed to achieve the goals under the plan.

The Solution

  • Plunged in depth to understand the business and its key operational drivers.
  • Drew a clear understanding of the profitability position, asset and liability position of the business.
  • Identified risk areas in debtors’ ledger, as well as cash flow and developed mitigation tactics.
  • Assessed the asset utilisation matrix and made recommendations on improvement.
  • Assessed the current business model, alternative revenue streams and marketing opportunities.
  • Assessed the governance structure and recapitalisation opportunities.

The Success

  • Forged an agreed-on pathway forward with a clear and practical strategic plan with initiatives to implement.
  • Achieved an informed Board and senior management.
  • Communicated the strategic plan to the shareholders and wider stakeholder group.
  • Managed and delivered initiatives including diversified revenue streams and right sized cost base.
  • Positioned the company for mergers and acquisitions opportunity.
