Challenge: A bank-owned private equity firm inherited ownership of a $200 million Oklahoma-based processor of animal byproducts. Spun off from a NYSE-listed parent several years earlier, the company's revenues and profits had since languished. Marginally profitable for three years, the CEO resigned. Faced with a threatened strike, the new bank owner sought new leadership to position the company for an exit.
What We did: Assuming control as Interim CEO, C.T. Moffitt & Company installed new management information systems (and a CIO), revamped financial reporting, negotiated the first ever incentive-based contract with the company union, secured a new line of credit, and led the company to profitability.
Results: Moffitt stabilized the company's finances and arranged sale of the company to a New York merchant bank by means of an industrial revenue bond financing and simultaneous refinance of senior bank debt.

Challenge: An importer/manufacturer of over 3000 small hardware products suffered from poor budget controls and lagging sales. Asked to increase their bank line, the lender refused, introducing C.T. Moffitt & Company to help the company revamp its reporting and controls.
What We did: Installed as the company's CFO, C.T. Moffitt & Co. embarked on a strategic planning exercise that produced a long range plan followed by yearly budgets and quarterly reviews. Moffitt brought in venture capital investors with an investment that tripled the company's capitalization. A board of directors was formed, and over several years senior debt was refinanced three times, rising in parallel with rapidly advancing sales from $5 million to $30 million. Along the way, Moffitt quarterbacked three acquisitions that added $25 million in revenue.
Results: Sales rose from $5 million to over $77 million during C.T. Moffitt's tenure with the company as CFO, consultant, and board member.
