About

Since 2003, we have successfully completed over 1,000 asset management & performance enhancement projects for clients in all 50 states and internationally. 

Performance Capital Partners provides performance audit, operations improvement, and growth management services to private equity firms and their portfolio companies, public companies, banks, and other established businesses. 

 

We produce uniquely interactive Digital Media Assets...which are enterprise simulation models that enable high velocity growth and change management planning & measurement for all project stakeholders.  The models enable higher value outcomes.

 

Engagements are typically focused on performance improvement and client earnings growth through revenue increases (25%), supply chain cost reductions (25%), SG&A performance improvement (20%), operations improvement (20%), and through corporate restructuring (10%).

 

Unique in M&A due diligence and enterprise asset management, our proprietary Performance Visualization System ("PVS") is a diagnostics application to assess each company’s “stakeholder ecosystem”. Proprietary interactive simulation models (Digital Media Assets) are created that deliver measurable, visual intelligence regarding the financial impact and alignment of each stakeholder (i.e. customers, suppliers, employees) on the client’s performance outcomes. The deliverables range from detailed analysis reports & summary digital videos, to fully interactive 3D stakeholder models with dynamic data and analytics for team collaboration.

 

The combined capabilities of our "Talent & Tools" enable greater precision in earnings growth planning, high velocity change management, and reduced risk for companies in dynamic markets.
