BackgroundA private equity owned, integrated supply chain solutions provider with global operations launches a dual track process. The Company, which historically operated globally on a regional basis, had recently begun building out a robust corporate function that was relatively new when the process was launched. Paradigm is engaged to provide IPO readiness as well as to build and lead a project management organization to manage both the IPO as well as other active and pending transformation initiatives.
- Built 24 (eight full scope entities, 3 quarters each) historical interim period models to reflect recast quarters with proper cut-off and prepared and supported parallel SAS 100 reviews
- Prepared accounting position paper for Segments
- Built and led project management organization reporting to CFO
- Worked with external auditors to support review of work
The rapid implementation of a comprehensive project management organization allows management to objectively measure the work and ensure realistic timelines can be achieved. Paradigm is able to bring the full weight of our pragmatic, hands-on approach to the efforts to build the historical quarters, which is critical to timeline given its level of effort to complete. The Company makes significant process towards an IPO before ultimately closing a strategic sale of the business.
