Profit Maximisation

Profit maximisation is not just about increasing turnover or adjusting prices, it's about growing the bottom line in as many areas of the business as possible whilst retaining competitiveness.

At Ellis & Co we'll look at overall business performance, analyse key ratios and highlight those areas that are right for improvement.

We'll look in detail at:

  • Reducing overheads
  • Tax structuring
  • Increasing sales and revenues

Marketing & Sales Development


Leadership & Management Development

Our business diagnostic support may reveal that there is a need for investment in your management or leadership resources. Through our extensive network of contacts in both the public and private sectors we will work with you to source grants and other means of support so that you can develop your managers and leaders into people who will make full use of their potential and accelerate the growth of the business.

Through our Associates we will work with you to design training and development programmes which will have most impact on the business.

Ensuring maximum shareholder value can be realised is a key objective when the sale of a business is being prepared.

  • Examining relationships with suppliers and customers
  • Considering sale of assets not essential to the running of the core business
