We never cease to be impressed by the range of innovative usages to which clients put a simple single figure metric – the G-Index or growth index.
Developed in 2005 for the Smithfield Corporation, this powerful index gave their investors clear visibility of the value potential being created across their $2.5 billion portfolio in Europe during the restructuring and transformation stage. G-Index fulfilled this requirement so well that we extended its functionality to provide drill-down capability to view the drivers and limiters impacting the index – an investor’s dream!
By comparison other companies have used the G-Index to enhance EBITDA multiples on business disposals and to assess sales synergies on acquisitions.
We see a variety of innovative usages for this smart metric ranging from investment plan validation to performance benchmarking.
It’s time for ambitious businesses and investors to make those dreams come true by adopting the G-Index as their key business capability metric.
