Business Advisory Services

Feasibility studies

Our feasibility study supplies in-depth knowledge regarding the possibilities of business success and the appropriateness of the ways used in achieving the desired business success. We provide projections for around five years, in line with the proposed business activities and intended markets, taking into consideration the possible bottlenecks that may arise in the business and the tools for developing market strategies to attract investors.

Business plans

Whether you are redefining your company’s value, implementing a major change, or entering into a new venture, we can derive an efficient and effective business plan for you. We at Grant Thornton provide you with a formal statement in which business goals, as well as historical value of your business, are presented.

Strategy

Business strategy can be a complex journey incorporating a myriad of decisions that are constantly made in a dynamic and ever changing environment. Our strategy and performance improvement professionals have the tools, experience, expertise, and insights to support our client’s growth ambitions throughout their strategic journey in today’s constantly evolving global economy.

Start-up advisory

We work closely with entrepreneurs to help develop and grow their ideas into businesses. We do this by giving them the tools and resources that they require to achieve their goals, and add the expertise of our team. Whether this is creating a feasibility study report or drawing up the company’s first business plan, we work closely with the client in each phase and process to ensure that the development is an easy transition.

Costing system design & implementation

Grant Thornton  works with companies to develop and create the correct costing system that suits the products and services that the organisation has to offer. A costing system is a framework used by firms to estimate the cost of products for profitability analysis, inventory valuation and cost control. Estimating the accurate cost of these products is critical for profitable operations. We work with the organisation from the design stage all the way through making sure that the implementation is conducted correctly and smoothly.

Transaction Advisory Services

Business valuations

For organisations involved in a transaction or a dispute, or embarking on a restructuring, the value of the business involved and its assets will be an important commercial consideration. A robust and reasoned opinion on value is essential. For litigants, a professional valuation is often the key to securing a fair settlement. Our Grant Thornton valuations team works with individuals, companies, governments, wealth funds and private equity companies to deliver essential valuation support during transactions and disputes.

Mergers & acquisitions

Family businesses have very common challenges ranging from business growth, risk management, and family succession planning, to the management and perpetuation of values, identity, culture, talent, and corporate governance. To support the growth of these dynamic businesses, we at Grant Thornton provides family governance services, focused on governance, culture and transparency solutions. Our goal is to help your business grow and advance for generations.

Debt advisory

We provide specialist advice on the raising and refinancing of debt. Through our deep understanding of the funding landscape and detailed knowledge of the credit process, we devise tailored funding solutions as part of a sustainable capital structure in line with the strategic ambition of our clients.

Project finance

Whether you are buying a business, selling a business, needing advice on mergers, management buy in/out or raising finance to support your business' plans, our team of professionals will guide you through the process to ensure that you get the best value for your assets.

Due diligence

We provide robust financial due diligence services that are clearly linked to our clients’ requirements as purchasers, and also suitable for their funders.

Data room preparation

Data room is a necessity required for the Due Diligence procedure. This is where the information of a company is collected for the potential buyers or investors to analysis the information. We help clients organise the company’s information in an orderly manner so it becomes more attractive for potential buyers.

Regulatory Advisory Services

IPO

IPO, or Initial Public Offering, is the first time that the stock of a private company is offered to the public. We at Grant Thornton help the company prepare an IPO document aligned with CBB, Bahrain Bourse and MOICT standards.
