  Why CEOs and CFOs Engage Us  
  Businesses are dynamic entities that go through periods of transition, expansion and contraction. While all share objectives to improve profitability and increase shareholder value, the lack of CFO expertise and capacity can keep businesses from delivering on these goals. Our interim CFO services support CEOs and CFOs who need high-level expertise and capacity in the following areas:  
 
   
Transition: Losing, Outgrowing or Not Having a Full-Time CFO
When a company loses, outgrows, or can’t hire a full-time CFO, CFO Edge provides needed expertise and capacity.
   
Expansion: Acquisitions, Growth & Public Offerings
  Acquisitions, rapid organic growth, and IPO-driven growth can bring challenges around new data requirements, processes, and compliance requirements.
   
Contraction: Divestitures, Downsizing & Turn-Arounds
  The strategic plan or a shifting economy may drive the sale of a business unit or may cause cutbacks in operations. Businesses in distress may require turn-around guidance.
   
Special Projects
  Challenges arise in addressing specific projects like purchase accounting, acquisition integration, financial modeling, financial restatements, and deal evaluation. These projects are frequently characterized by esoteric regulations and tight deadlines.
   
Strategic Planning & Operational Challenges
  Too often CEOs are furnished with only historic data or data not delivered in a timely manner. Missing are higher-level data, financial consulting on costs and profits, and strategic guidance.
 
     
  When action in these areas is delayed or provided by a mismatched resource, the impact can be costly. CEOs and CFOs may feel overwhelmed by the sheer volume and complexities of tasks at hand. Business opportunities may be lost and compliance put at risk. When costs and profits don’t meet projections, shareholder value declines. The root cause: needed CFO expertise and capacity are missing.
