Speaker Bio

Phil Ives

Phil Ives is a Partner in Assay Advisory UK Ltd, a hybrid consulting and corporate finance business which helps business owners to achieve clarity around the true value of their businesses; develop an ‘investor lens’ mindset and empowers them to accelerate to a transaction/event. He is also a Global Partner in Shirlaws Group.

Over nearly 20 years, Phil built and ran a number of highly successful B2B media companies across all continents and serving all major industries. Without exception, every business Phil has run or advised has enjoyed significant, rapid and sustained growth, even through the depths of major recessions. Two of his companies were ‘gazelles’ – technically speaking, businesses that grow at a minimum of 25% per year for at least five consecutive years.

His final ‘proper job’ was to build GlobalData Plc alongside Mike Danson, whose first business, Datamonitor, sold for £502m.

Today Phil supports a broad range of owner/managers and business leaders around the world in many different sectors – all of whom are serious about change, and restless to drive their organisations forward quickly, and to maximise the value of their work.

Accelerating the Increase in the Equity Value of your Business - and why it makes sense even if you never plan to sell…

Overview:

With the economic recovery at a critical juncture, the immediate future may represent the best opportunity many entrepreneurs will have to generate additional real wealth before selling or exiting their businesses.

Irrespective of whether or not you're considering an exit either now or in the future, there are a number of key things to consider and implement now to secure and deliver future growth, accelerate an increase in equity value and increase profitable revenues.

Phil Ives runs interactive, informal and entertaining sessions focused on what you can do to increase equity value; why doing this doesn’t necessarily involve increasing profits or revenue - and why it makes great sense even if you never plan to sell.

Takwaways:

  • Understanding timing - the key cycles that most influence equity value
  • What macro-economic trends suggest the next 15 years could look like
  • The specific stages of every business cycle
  • The potentially value-destroying influence of ‘energy’ during the transaction cycle
  • The importance of an Equity Vision – begin with the end in mind
  • The Equity Valuation formula – what impacts truly ‘multiple’, and how to ramp up value without necessary driving profits
  • Risk based and Asset based valuation – how income follows assets
  • Uncovering hidden assets
  • The specific impact of management teams, talent, capability and culture
  • Where to start…
