What Is FP&A? How Do FP&A Services Help?
"Good Fortune Is What Happens When Opportunity Meets With Planning." - Thomas Edison
Financial Planning and Analysis ("FP&A") is a tool that Fortune 500 corporations use to grow their businesses. This type of planning is incredibly beneficial to energy companies. We offer FP&A as-a-service to private mid-sized clients in the oil, natural gas, oilfield, chemicals, utilities, renewables and storage, energy services, engineering and construction industries.
FP&A helps translate your strategy into action so you can plan for, measure, monitor, and course-correct as needed. Any size business can benefit from it. And you don't have to hire a full-time FP&A department and CFO to take advantage of it. We help businesses like yours visualize goals and translate your strategy into action using our outsourced FP&A service.
We can help you plan for future opportunities by creating and implementing a flexible financial plan that:
Enables you to take proactive measures to improve your company's future success.
Translates your vision into an action plan, complete with sales metrics and financial projections.
Reduce the stress of balancing basic financial management tasks with more strategic FP&A activities.
Forecast profits and cash inflows/outflows so you can anticipate and take steps to cover shortfalls.
Enjoy the same level of advanced FP&A techniques and technologies as larger businesses, without the big price tag.
Improve organizational decision making.
Do You Want To Be In The Same Place Next Year?
The answer, of course, is no!
Whether it's been a successful year for your business or one you'd rather forget, the goal is always to keep moving forward.
What are you doing to make this goal a reality?
Have you quantified what your business plan means in terms of future profits and cash flows?
Are you measuring and monitoring your sales, budget, and profit margin performance against your plan?
Our Financial Planning and Analysis (FP&A) Services can help you develop your company's road map, budget and forecast, visualize your business plan, develop strategy, prepare for transactions, present to your board, and help advise you as you navigate your company to the next level.

We Want Your Finances And Business To Thrive
Owning and running a private company is tough. Your least abundant resource is time and when you are growing - you never have enough cash. These are common growing pains we see clients struggling with:
Owners are overrun with too many responsibilities - working and running the company.
Unfamiliarity with what is going on with the financial health and the performance of their companies.
Not getting relevant and impactful information they need to aid in decision making.
Encountering growth resistance points and frustrated with an inability to make traction.
Feeling something is off or there is a gap, but not exactly sure what "it" is.
Not getting candid feedback, constructive guidance, or practical solutions to tackle problems.
Dealing with gaps in organizational design and governance.
We have experience helping clients with these issues and much more. What we do is help you see the big picture and understand how the administrative and operational pieces of your business impact your profitability, cash flow, and/or hold back growth so you can take action.
