Client Successes in Finance, Accounting, and Technology
Business acquisitions, scaling for rapid growth, or divestment decisions can present major challenges. To enact change, business leaders seek to improve areas that will ensure continued growth, enable new types of funding, or desirably position a company for eventual sale. Often, the highest-impact improvement areas relate to an organization’s finance and accounting functions and related technologies.
Here is a showcase of three companies that faced these common yet complex situations, working with experts from Riveron to drive successful improvements.
Consolidating multiple systems to prepare for a strategic sale or IPO
A private equity-backed provider of government services had acquired multiple businesses in a short time frame. The organization needed to streamline its disparate finance and technology siloes and prepare for a possible IPO.
Due to the work Riveron performed, the company now operates as one consolidated entity rather than working inefficiently across multiple business silos. As a result, the organization faced a more efficient path toward an IPO or strategic sale by establishing a single financial system, one indirect rate strategy, and a streamlined set of back-office policies.
Preparing to scale: evolving a company’s finance and accounting functions
To prepare for private equity backing, Riveron helped a growing software company enable scale by transitioning its infrastructure and evolving its finance and accounting functions. Riveron served as interim CFO, and some of the key advancements included creating a platform to evaluate and optimize potential target acquisition companies, revising the company’s debt arrangements, and developing relevant tax planning strategies.
Managing and improving the accounting function during restructuring
Riveron partnered with a large energy sector company to transition through a restructuring deal and establish a new, optimized accounting and finance function. Through this effort, Riveron worked with the company to successfully mobilize streamlined processes, automate key tasks, and implement a new ERP system.
