Are you a middle-market private equity operating manager looking for fast time-to-money earnings growth with minimal capital investment??

If so, consider these facts. Large-cap PE firms have spent the last decade honing their procurement strategies. That said, mid-market and lower mid-market PE firms have only begun to drive savings from procurement.

But done right, targeted efforts in procurement can create amazing hikes in value, sometimes as high as 5-10% of EBITDA. Also, if done right, optimizing procurement vs. making other kinds of operational improvements doesn’t have to be an “either/or” choice. Prioritizing both quick-win opportunities in areas like indirect spend as well as in concentrated spend areas (like direct materials) can avoid “boiling the ocean” pursuing low ROI activities.
