PE Perspective® is our proprietary financial software designed specifically for the private equity industry. Design consideration centered upon a level of trend visibility and PE metrics that is not available in the PE software space and is certainly not in the typical monthly financial package. Our software gives the capacity to view portco performance through the lenses of cash flow reconciliation, pro forma perspective, and disciplines such as fixed cost and working capital control.
Rolling up portfolio financials statements is certainly a centerpiece of the software, however we know that you need more than financial statements to achieve the transparency necessary to make smart decisions and judgments. You need trends in contribution margin and EBITDA “flow-through”. You need to understand fixed cost leverage and why operating cash flows diverge from EBITDA. You need perspective, transparency, and a consistent set of numbers throughout the holding period.
