We provide support in long-term financial and investment decisions. In order to do so, we perform analyses to obtain a comprehensive view of your company and together with you, we can develop plans for the future (corporate planning and rolling forecast).
A special focus of our expertise is financing. We identify the needs of your company, create financing concepts and conduct the entire financing process, including the preparation of the necessary documents, approaching investors and negotiating with them, as well as selecting appropriate funding programs.
As part of the operational financial management we take care of controlling and reporting. In cooperation with tax consultants and accountants we support you in bookkeeping and accounting management, the preparation of financial statements and also accompany their examination.

Other areas of our operational activities include Investor Relations, Treasury, Risk Management and Insurance Management.
A five-year-old telecommunication company has successfully completed a mezzanine financing round. The agreement required compliance with milestones and specific financial covenants.
The investors, an international consortium, demanded the introduction of professional controlling and reporting structures. At the same time the company grew from 12 to 25 employees. The company’s founder contacted Portus and within two weeks, we took over controlling/reporting, business administration, as well as investor relations. Portus also took responsibility for preparing monthly reports and quarterly Supervisory Board meetings.
Our initial service led to three years of cooperation until the company was sold to a strategic investor. On average, during that period Portus’ Mr Fink took care of the company’s activities for one and a half days per week. When the sale of the company was prepared, the involvement of Mr. Fink increased to about four days a week for a period of approximately two months.
