Private Equity

Unmatched EBITDA Improvements

We improve portfolio performance for private equity. From Quality of Earnings (QofE) defensible EBITDA growth and validating critical assumptions to exceptional value creation, our results are seconded to none since 2011.

Our work, driven by research and data, identifies valuable opportunities to optimize and impact an organization’s complex value chains, increase preparedness, sustain annualized cost savings, and reveal potential supply chain risks.

We offer supply chain services with a strategic sourcing focus that help private equity owned portfolio companies stay ahead of the curve through massive cost savings. Our systematic and flexible framework and industry-agnostic approach address the specific challenges across sectors, including consumer goods, niche and industrial manufacturing, value-add distribution, and nutraceutical.

Our team uses a comprehensive global supply chain optimization strategy that considers factors such as tariffs, benchmarks, rates (labor rates, freight, commodity prices, facility costs), cost drivers, and the global supply base to firmly understand your challenges and achieve quick wins during the first 100 Days of an engagement.

That first phase of engagement gives us the opportunity to deliver significant savings during strategy development and proposing a solution based on size, scale, growth expectations, and target requirements. In many cases, Forsyth Advisors executes and implements the solution recommendation to generate exceptional ROIs and cost reductions while building a supply chain that is protected from disruption risks.

Our business analysts and strategic sourcing experts can assess risks and opportunities using a range of critical factors (quality, compliance, country / region, and tax), which are an often underestimated source of significant savings.
