New Professional Membership

Malcolm Wilton has been admitted as a Member to The Institute for Turnaround.

Turnaround of a specialist childcare operation.

Malcolm Wilton has just completed an assignment at a Specialist residential Childcare business which also operated an associated educational establishment. Malcolm was called in by a well known bank to work alongside two sector specialists who were engaged to improve the operational aspects of the business and increase the occupancy levels. Malcolm's involvement was to improve the financial efficiency of the business, manage the cashflow and work with the specialists to define the strategic direction of the operation. Getting the financial position up to date was a priority as well as implementing accurate forecasting and monthly reporting were key ingredients of the success of turning this business around.

Successful turnaround at Specialist manufacturer

The services of Malcolm Wilton were called upon to help change the fortunes of a specialist clothing manufacturer who was feeling the pressure of creditors and tight cash flow. The businesses were owner managed with turnover of less than £3m. Financing a sizeable contract placed by a European customer, who was late in paying, placed intolerable strains on the cash flow of the operation. The foreign exchange exposure also placed an intolerable burden on the business as currency losses had been incurred. A number of problem areas were quickly identified and workable solutions proposed and accepted. The key areas of control identified to effect a successful outcome included raw materials, stock of finished goods and negotiation with the suppliers of key products and the local authority. Costs were also reviewed and cut back to reflect the needs of the operation.
As with any successful turnaround, maintaining a good dialogue with the financiers was an essential part of the process from the outset.
