An engagement to secure the release of working capital in the non-ferous metals industry
Our client operates in the non-ferrous metal industry, with operations in many regions. It had recently been purchased by a Private Equity investor and the new owner was keen to release excess working capital.
Following a high-level analysis of areas of opportunity for working capital reduction we worked with Senior Management to prioritise those opportunities. For these priority areas we undertook detailed analyses and then worked with the management teams in the individual units to put together action plans to achieve the targeted reductions, gaining commitment to the plans.
The units committed to a combined 32% increase of corporate working capital turnover within 1,5 years, corresponding to 150 MEUR released capital. When ADL left the program after a half a year, 75 MEUR had already been realeased.
