Help! I’m managing through a crisis, what’s my first step?
Navigating uncertain times requires bold decisions, creativity and a focus on moving away from fear-based reactions. Emphasis should instead be concentrated on cash management, managing working capital, operational expenses and supply chain risk management. Richter understands how to navigate a crisis, regardless of its scale, and we are here to help. Together, we’ll create the solution.

When it comes to your business, we suggest focusing primarily on the following:
CASH FLOW MANAGEMENT
- Cash conversion is key – your entire organization should be thinking like a CFO
- Manage working capital and supply chain management – create a communication plan and work with your creditors
- Look at alternative financing options and take advantage of government subsidies and tax deferral opportunities
- Communicate with your lenders and recognize their importance as a key stakeholder in this crisis and engage with them as part of the solution
UNDERSTAND YOUR OPTIONS NOW
- During a crisis your options start to narrow with less time and liquidity
