Shaping your capital agenda to maximize growth
Timid in turbulent times?
In an unstable economic environment, caution is king. While companies today are confident about the deal environment, they’re expecting others to actually do the deals. Right now, perhaps the watchword should be opportunity. Growth is possible — and it’s possible now.
Panelists agreed that such growth requires preparation and innovation. Stanley Thai of Supermax Corporation Bhd. offered two tips: streamline the global supply chain and stick with a business model that works.
Mario Moretti Polegato, Founder and Chairman of Geox Group, added that companies should continue to invest, especially in creativity, patent protection and collaboration.
Our capital agenda panelists came from different industries and varied backgrounds, but they share a common perspective on the market: now is the time for well-prepared companies to make their move, whether through organic growth or acquisitions.
“These are not times to be cautious,” said Michael Malone, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of iiNet. “These are times to be brave.”
