Growth Strategy & Systems

We advise our clients on the formulation of optimal growth strategies through new projects, investments, joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions including new market entry strategies.

We work with our clients to understand their core areas of competitive advantage and existing growth targets and investment criteria – and propose alternative approaches. We assess existing standard operating procedures (SOP) and management systems for business development and growth planning. Using a proprietary AWR Lloyd SOP framework, ‘Hot List to Watch List*’, we suggest improvements to ensure effective procedures for strategic planning, target screening, evaluation, due diligence, investment committee approvals and final deal structuring.

We analyze demand trends, industry economics and competition in target growth markets. We look at the control structure of industries in different countries – and suggest and profile potential targets.

*Note: Hot List to Watch List is a proprietary AWR Lloyd analytical tool

For example: AWR Lloyd worked for a Fortune 500 oil and gas group in Southeast Asia to formulate a global power sector investment masterplan. We conducted research on the power market and regulation in all key countries in Asia-Pacific, North America and Europe and developed a detailed power plant database for selected countries. We advised on market entry strategies and provided benchmarking and case study analysis of other oil and gas groups with power sector strategies.
