5 Proprietary and Confidential Current Sustainability Paradigm

6 Sustainability Myths Accounting – Financials determine ongoing concern Banking – In loan covenants equal company health Venture Capital/Private Equity – Hitting ROI targets define growth potential Insurance – Financial-based risk models minimize issues ™ &©

7 Macro Economic Effects Difficult times ahead: Commodity prices going way up Fed easing created bank deleveraging National debt focus will cut services Unemployment to hit public sector Uncertainty in Mid-east to keep oil high 7 ™ &©

8 What Owners Will Tell You If I only had another $1.5 million……. The economy is wrecking my business…… It’s the Union……. I can’t find anyone who wants to work…… My customers won’t pay me on time….. Once we get the order we can’t deliver…… Why is my bank doing this to me?...... 8 ™ &©

9 Owners Response: Death Spiral 9 Fire Marketing Department Let go of Sales Team Eliminate Senior Operators Quality fails rapidly Production clogs Your Banks call loans ™ &©


11 Proprietary and Confidential Move To True Sustainability


13 Let’s Start With The Basics Five questions you need to ask: Tells you how engaged ownership is in business Reveals how profitability is calculated Validates that there is a system to understand true costs of business Confirms if company has built sustainable infrastructure 13 ™ &©


15 15 What You need to askWhat You want to hear Walk me through how you calculate velocity of money? We calculate velocity of money by tracking the steps and how quickly $1 of investment is returned to us. This enables us to know exactly how long it takes to get our return on investment. If You HearIt Means What do you mean by velocity of money? They do not actively manage/measure key financial activities like creating an invoice, A/R collection duration. Typically they are using a line of credit as a lifeline that continually grows. Question 2 ™ &©

16 Question 3 16 What You need to askWhat You want to hear What is your cost to quote? How much does it cost you to prepare a quote? There is a fully cross-functional team; there is a template that all participants contribute to; prices updated monthly on all core buy items; targeted GM vs gross GM. If You HearIt Means What do you mean or we have a quote engineer who reviews? Suspect accountability at best; little traction/reporting on how quotes are developed and priced. ™ &©

17 Question 4 17 What You need to askWhat You want to hear What is the smallest order you'll entertain? Actual order numbers based on gross margin relationship to cost to prepare quotes. If You HearIt Means I don’t know what you mean?Company is packing dollar bills with each order. ™ &©

18 Question 5 18 What You need to askWhat You want to hear What is your WACC?We know exactly what our costs of equity and debt are. If You HearIt Means What is WACC? Or, my CFO calculates it only when we need to do a transaction! Business Owner and Stakeholders do not know the relationship between WACC and cap rate. If the company wants to sell ultimately, have no idea how to approach. ™ &©

26 Proprietary and Confidential Financial Statements & Sustainability

27 Financial Statement Use Financial statements are an end result – Fixing the statements does not fix core issue Owners often unfamiliar with key financial drivers – No ability or know how to track profitability Connected systems drive financial health – Mission Critical Process management promotes efficiencies – Efficiencies directly impact financial statements 27 Proprietary and Confidential Exclusive Property of Brill Worldwide, Inc., “BWWI”. ™ &©
