A&M Rapid Results Program


PE investors often find themselves challenged with driving EBITDA and enterprise value growth within notoriously short holding periods in their investment portfolios. The A&M Rapid Results Program has been the proven tool that our PE clients most often leverage to positively impact revenue, cost and margin drivers, as well as working capital in a compressed timeframe.

By addressing performance characteristics critical to the growth of portfolio companies, the A&M Rapid Results Program is different from other common performance improvement approaches, and focuses on:

  • Results and Speed: energy/intensity levels and proven results in a compressed timeline
  • Relevance: specific industry and functional expertise; availability of comparative data and information, benchmarks
