Strategic and Operational Consulting
 

The company strategy should focus on reachable and practical definitions of the overall purpose and scope of the business.
It should answer questions like:
  • What is the direction of the business?
  • What are its competitive advantages?
  • What markets is the business going to focus on?
  • What resources does it count on?
  • What is the competitive and market environment that it faces?

Lambda is an expert in Strategy Development and Implementation. We help you refine your basic strategy and ensure that all elements are linked and aligned with it. Our external and objective viewpoint is a valuable tool for business owners and managers.
Company Strategy is not a plaque on a bulletin board. It must guide and inspire the staffmembers to make the correct decisions in terms of how to compete. The company will be more efficient and effective in reaching its consumers and providing the goods and services that the market wants at the price points required.
A typical case that Lambda worked on involved the business focus of a telecommunications product supplier. The client believed that their product was clearly targeted at the Consumer market. Lambda did the relevant analysis and concluded that the product was better positioned in the Business market. After a presentation to the Board of Directors, the company changed its product focus according to our recommendation.


Financial Analyses, Valuations and Estimates of Economic Losses
 

Lambda International leverages its deep business knowledge, experience and insights into its Financial Analyses and Valuations.  While steeped in current valuation theory - both based on Discounted Cash Flows and Comparables by Multiples - we believe that the the theoretical framework used must fit the case, not vice versa.

Thus we first understand the key drivers of the business, the reasons for its current performance and how internal and external factors will impact that performance in the future before defining the valuation frameworks to be used.

An important element that differentiates us is Strategic Valuations: valuing companies under different Growth Scenarios and levels of profitability. This analyses helps management make decisions with corporate value in mind. 
Lambda International has significant experience in multiple industries and areas of business that we bring to the table to support our clients that are facing situations where a calculation of Lost Profits and Economic Damages is important. 

We supply business insights and a 360 degree viewpoint to complement those of accountants, attorneys and the firm's managers in understanding the impact of adverse actions upon the firm.

As always, we support our clients from the initial consultation to the final arbitration, settlement or decision.
A typical case that Lambda worked on involved the definition of transfer pricing between two divisions of a multinational corporation. A national tax authority challenged the transfer pricing on the basis of an incorrect valuation of the importance and therefore value of certain IT functions. Lambda undertook an exhaustive analysis of the internal costs and the value contributed by the IT function in terms of product positioning and evolution as well as conducting a regional benchmarking study to support its client. The national tax authority granted the majority of the claims that our client was defending.
