What's Unique About HOLT?
HOLT Alliance Services, a division of Chicago-based HOLT Value Associates®, provides corporations and alliance partners (including management consultants, compensation consultants, corporate finance advisors and investment banks) with the same proprietary economic performance measurement and valuation model used by over 2,000 portfolio managers to make investment decisions.
Through the use of this model HOLT helps corporate executives understand their companies’ stock price valuation and corporate performance. HOLT provides the tools to understand the market’s perspective of their corporate performance and the strategies to maximize their ability to create shareholder value.
HOLT’s CFROI corporate performance and valuation framework corrects for material accounting distortions and calculates cash performance and key value drivers. HOLT adjusts accounting data of retailers and suppliers. For example, financial statements of retailers are adjusted to reflect differences in whether they lease or purchase stores; manufacturer statements are adjusted to normalize the use of LIFO or FIFO for inventory valuations. Failure to make adjustments make comparisons between companies inaccurate and often misleading.
