Management control tool
With the right management control tool, you can systematically collect financial data and analyse business performance on an ongoing basis. This provides crucial support to owners, executive directors and other business managers when making everyday decisions regarding business operations.
Through the use of charts and other graphic solutions, the tool presents all the essential data in a simple and comprehensible manner. What is more, by conducting such analyses systematically (preferably on a monthly basis), you can regularly monitor the health of the enterprise and respond immediately to the latest results.
Business planning and financial modelling
The business planning service allows for a comprehensive feasibility assessment of an investment project, such as e.g. foreign expansion, launching a new product to the market or opening a new sales channel.
Assessment is based on a business plan presenting the economic aspect of the undertaking in the form of a financial model taking into account financial projections related to the planned investment.
Independent Business Review (IBR)
An Independent Business Review (IBR) is often required by creditors, including but not limited to lending institutions and other co-financing entities, prior to making key financial and investment decisions, particularly those related to debt restructuring.
A review carried out by experienced Grant Thornton advisers provides creditors with trustworthy information regarding the current situation of the given business venture and its future prospects, making it possible to identify key risk areas for loan repayment and the right response. As a result, both the co-financing institution and the entity subject to review can benefit.
A fairness opinion is an independent opinion on the financial terms of a transaction, which can often be of key importance to the management board of a company.
The objectives of a fairness opinion include:
- mitigating information asymmetry among shareholders in M&A transactions,
- analytical support for the company’s management board facing decisions regarding the fairness of financial terms of a transaction,
- enhancing transparency of the company,
- improving communications between the management board and company’s shareholders.
An initial public offering on the NewConnect market is a very important milestone for any company, as it entails raising financing for the business to implement planned investments and bring about above-average growth rates.

Bond issue on WSE Catalyst
More flexible than a bank loan, a bond issue is a form of debt financing where the entity raising funds is the one to define the terms. As an Authorised Adviser of the Catalyst bond market we can take you through the bond issue process and, if needed, float the bonds on the Catalyst market. We will prepare the financial model of your company to verify whether it is capable of servicing its bonds, take care of all the formalities related to the process and coordinate the work of all the parties involved.

Private equity / venture capital
Raising capital to finance growth from venture capital or private equity funds is an interesting alternative for many businesses, both those at initial stages of development, with a strong potential based on a unique business concept, and those well-established in the market, seeking capital to finance new undertakings. Experts from Grant Thornton can support you at every stage of the project, starting from making the initial contact with the funds, through exchange of information and negotiating terms, to closing the deal.
Relations with banks
A business which is fully aware of its needs in terms of hedging its foreign exchange risks, as well as providing the right amounts and proportions of credit, leasing and factoring financing is better equipped to negotiate with banks. By choosing Grant Thornton to represent you in relations with banks, you are improving your odds of negotiating a better deal.
