Feasibility studies

Feasibility studies address issues that could influence the success of a potential project and assess the advantages and disadvantages of each alternative so they can be ranked. The end product of the study is a clear, concise report which presents the proposed project’s worthiness, with conclusions and recommendations for the next phase.

Our services provide our clients with a firm and sound basis to determine whether their projects have sufficient value to pursue into more detailed phase. Also, our expertise will support our clients in gauging their respective target market response. This is achieved by means of a feasibility study. 

Project Appraisals

The lack of a common satisfactory method and benchmark, to evaluate the benefits and costs of projects in various sectors, has led to price distortions. Such structural distortions has led to erroneous cost factor inputs (labor, interest rate expectations, subsidies, taxes, transaction costs, etc.). The changes in regulations and policies can also distort market prices, so that calculations of private profit do not reflect the profit or loss to the organization. Thus, market value and price estimations have become more sophisticated in recent years.

Our services provide our clients with a firm and sound basis to determine the Market Value of a certain potential project or asset after acquiring it. Such valuations will vary according to our clients’ purpose (selling, buying, liquidation, merger…)

Market Research

Before plunging into a certain market, and as an essential supplement to feasibility studies or project appraisals, or as a separate step before engaging in the expensive studies phase, market research has proven crucial and instrumental in choosing among markets (domestic or international) and products (traditional or new).

Our services provide our clients with a myriad of market research forms and methodologies (structured, unstructured, qualitative, quantitative …) that suits their business, market, products and services). Our research models are tailored along our clients’ capabilities and potential growth opportunities.
