A small sample of our capabilities are explained below to communicate our willingness to approach any situation you may encounter.

Business Advisory Counseling

Business advisory councils bring external advisors to the situation you are facing who can provide you with advice and support. Robbinex’s background as generalists qualifies us to facilitate these discussions and brings creativity from an outside source. Our Cooperative Network is a strong source of potential professionals to engage.

All business owners, at some point in their career, will reach a crossroads with the business where they won’t know how to proceed. Access to a council of trusted professionals on a regular basis can minimize the chance of operational disruptions and would help you to work on your business, rather than just working in your business.

An advisory council can be used to answer many types of questions. Consider the following:

  • Do you want to retire someday?
  • Who will take over your company when you retire?
  • Do you need a family trust for your children?
  • Do your kids work in the business?
  • Is the business set up in such a way that your kids could take over without disruption operations?
  • Do you have the proper corporate structure in place for tax efficiency upon exit from the business?
  • What are the personal tax implications of selling your business?
  • Have you taken the necessary steps to use your Lifetime Capital Gains Exemption?
  • Is the business having cashflow problems?
  • Are you using the business’ cash effectively?
  • Is an acquisition worth it for the company?
  • Can the business afford an identified growth opportunity?
  • Does the business rely heavily on you?
  • Do you have any partnership issues that you don’t know how to resolve?
  • What will happen to your loyal employees?
  • Do your employees expect long-term job security from you?

Let Robbinex help you set up your company for success today.

Mergers & Acquisitions

The Robbinex Team has a worldwide network of M&A advisors with whom we collaborate (M&A Worldwide).

Strategic Alliances

A strategic alliance typically involves two or more companies entering into a contractual relationship for some type of strategic cooperation. Robbinex can help a business to define the needs that could be addressed by a strategic alliance and can facilitate negotiations of the agreement.

Solving Business Problems

Businesses can often face problems relating to:

Expanding into a new geographic area

Acquiring people, property, and equipment

Improving a company’s competitive position

Solving supply chain issues

Creating economies of scale or synergies

Robbinex offers comprehensive business consulting services proven to address related concerns at varying levels of severity. No matter the concern, we can help you develop a solution.

Family Business Planning

It is never too early to start planning and decisions regarding family members can be difficult to navigate without external support. Whether you are thinking about future management, how ownership is going to be passed along, taxes, or your legacy, you will be thinking about how your decisions will affect your family.

Business Psychology

If you are a parent thinking of a next generation transition, or the owner of a business considering selling to key employees, you have a lot riding on whether the individuals you have in mind have the attributes necessary to successfully own and run a business.

The Thomas HPTI Assessment (High Potential Trait Indicator) is a psychometric assessment tool that provides easy to action solutions that Robbinex can assist in the implementation of. Robbinex employs two team members who are qualified to administer these evaluations and interpret the results. Learn more about Psychometric Assessment Tools

Next Generation Transition

Many business owners dream about the day that their children will take control of the business. When the children have had the proper training and experience, seeing them take over and successfully run a business can be one of the most gratifying experiences for a business owner and parent.

At the same time, passing on a business to the next generation is a challenging form of transition. Robbinex can assist in the transition between family members, protecting both the value of the business and your family relationships.

Value Enhancement Services

Value enhancements can create long-term benefits for your business that would be reflected in the price your business eventually sells for. The Phase One - Comprehensive Business Analysis process provides initial recommendations to remove impediments to sale and for value enhancement opportunities.

Robbinex is qualified to administer the input sessions to complete a Value Opportunity Profile (VOP). VOP critically evaluates each facet of your business based on extensive survey-style submissions. We can then provide guidance and actions to be taken based on this standardized assessment.

Financing Advice

Private businesses often require external funding to operate with limited complications. Funding applications can require professional guidance to complete due to the complicated nature of Canadian banking legislation. As a well-informed company in the industry, who does not directly provide funding, we can use our expertise to level the playing field.

We will use our relationships to determine your best opportunities to obtain funding with minimized restrictions.

Strategic Planning

If you have worked on the 10/5/3 Strategic Planning Workbook, you have begun strategic planning. Robbinex is well-positioned to help business owners move from the initial stages of strategic planning to developing a comprehensive long-term strategy by providing an outside perspective.

Our expertise in business transactions allows us to take a value-informed position when we look at an organization’s long-term plans.
