About the course

Learn how a business can survive, thrive, and prepare itself for a rebound in recessionary times. Understand when the decision to close is the right one.

This two-day course delivers different financial analysis tools to assist in critical decision making that can enable a company to navigate uncertain times. First, we focus on survival, analysing the cash resources available, and the concept of ‘cash-burn’. Next, in preparation to thrive, we prepare a credit analysis of a company to understand its strengths and weaknesses. Thus, if we do decide to continue, how do we restructure the corporate to build lasting financial foundations? Finally, we walk through the process and calculations involved in closing a business.
