Fraser Hone Consulting Profile

MANDATE FEATURES

Typically, owner-managers of rapidly growing private enterprises find themselves lacking the internal resources required to carry out vital business functions in the areas of corporate finance and administration. Fund raising is a top priority and tapping the private and public markets is a huge challenge. The due diligence of banks and potential investors is intensive, placing unusual demands on managements time and attention, just when they need to focus on business operations as never before. Engaging financial managers with the right caliber and appropriate hands-on experience can be a time-consuming effort, often requiring the support of professional recruiters. Training current and new employees to move up the learning curve for the next stage in the companys evolution is normally another daunting task.

Fraser Hone Consulting Inc. provides its clients with an effective interim response in these urgent situations, helping the company bridge the competence gap and to achieve its immediate objectives in a period of opportunity and accelerating growth. Fraser Hone Consulting Inc. offers continuing guidance specifically adapted to the companys own pace and circumstances. As it builds its own organization for the longer term and ramps up its operations, a company can better determine and achieve the desired balance between outsourced and internally managed functions.

We serve a limited number of clients at any one time, a typical mandate usually lasting for a continuous period of 6 months, followed by ad hoc consulting mandates of more limited duration.

A key feature of our mandates is a compensation arrangement based on an appropriate mix of cash fees and equity awards, geared and scheduled to the clients emerging circumstances. This approach provides mutual incentives for business success.
