CVCA Portfolio Management

Critical to proactively manage portfolio company performance through a downturn - increased focus on dashboard reporting and managing expectations
- Cash flow "Quick Hits": Dial back growth; Focus on streamlining direct costs as opposed to SG&A; Aggressively manage working capital
- Very rarely are cuts too deep - need to react to current environment quickly and prepare for the worst - revisit downside case
Clearly, we are operating in very difficult and uncertain times. That being said, there was a general consensus that good deals will get done in 2009.
