Success Stories

Our assignments in corporate finance select projects include:

Identifying undervalued public companies: The client wanted us to scan publicly traded companies in more than 15 major European stock markets to identify undervalued firms. We designed a process to filter investment ideas and set the criteria for determining whether the firm was undervalued. We recommended three firms where, in our opinion, the market was significantly undervaluing the underlying business.

LBO of generics maker in an emerging market: Our client has made several leveraged acquisitions where we have been involved in several aspects of the deal such as financial modeling and preparation of Confidential Information Memorandum.

Portfolio Analysis: Our client was interested in buying the non-performing loans of a major bank. We helped our client, a major distressed debt fund, with due diligence and valuation of the portfolio.

Identified investment targets for UK based fund in the Indian hospitality and retail sector. 

Market entry strategy: We developed a comprehensive market entry strategy for this company to enter the Indian market. 


M&A target analysis: Our client, a Scandinavian investment bank, wanted us to identify potential buyers for a midsized IT Services firm based in Scandinavia.

M&A Analysis: We work with the CFO of a growing services firm based in the US, to cover various aspects of acquisitions. This includes preparing the final documents for review by the company’s executive team as well as board of directors.

From 45 Days to 10 days to close financials
"A couple of years back, our monthly financial close would take anywhere from 30 to 45 days. There was very little planning and most of the work was done after month end. Much of the month end work was done manually.
The month end bank reconciliations were extremely time-consuming due to the high volume of transactions and the difficulty aggregating these transactions to the bank activity. Reconciling items lingered for months. We reviewed off-the-shelf bank reconciliation applications to fix the problem; however, none could meet our needs. Since GKS was already preparing our bank reconciliations, we whether they could automate our bank reconciliation process. Their Bank Reconciliation App has effectively solved one of our most difficult problems. They have also automated several other processes and reconciliations for us. Their solutions have been instrumental in reducing our manual work and provided enhanced internal controls and reporting. We are now closing financials in 10 days. I have recommended them to other departments within our firm and to colleagues in other firms."

From a Manual process for our Capex to a streamlined and automated solution
"Our Capex process had become a huge burden. The process ran on phone calls and emails and as transaction volumes picked up, it was becoming a nightmare keeping track of every request. GKS created a workflow based solution for us to track everything online. All of the paperwork, email and phone calls were replaced by a transparent system which has killed a lot of unproductive time and effort. Also the system has enhanced our control over Capex spending whereas in the past our control had been much weaker."
-Scott Cielencki, Senior Business Analyst (Northstar Memorial Group)

Over $1mn in annual savings from our partnership with GKS
"We have been working with GKS for nearly 8 years. Their team is helping us in many key areas of business such as customer service, collections, HR and accounting. Over the years they have helped us solve key problems in our back office by helping us design better processes and automating them. We save well over a million dollars a year in operating expenses thanks to them."
-Mark Shinder, Chief Financial Officer & Executive Vice President (Northstar Memorial Group)

Handled a 60% increase in Contracts Processed per month in 3 months with less than 1% error rates
"Our business was growing very rapidly - both organically and through acquisitions. We desperately needed additional resources to process new customer contracts. GKS rapidly built an offshore team to processes contracts and automate data entry. In a 3 month period, the number of contracts processed by them jumped 60% but they were able to manage this with an error rate of less than 1%. In the last year, their processing volume has more than doubled and they now process nearly 35% of all contracts. Error rates remained below 1%. As a result, our frontline sales and admin teams have been able to focus on customers instead of data entry."
