Weissr® Capex Strategy
Weissr® Capex Strategy enables you to define the optimal cash flow maximizing capex strategy based on thorough scenario and sensitivity testing. It allows businesses to quickly compare, update and evaluate a tremendous amount of whole-business capital related strategic alternatives for better and faster decision-making in the ever-changing business environment. The defined capex strategy then governs the capital budgeting process and all capex decisions, applying a strategic lens to the streamlined and standardized evaluation of all capital expenditures, ensuring the best possible deployment of capital for the entire system – no more capital expenditures that do not add any value to your business.
Weissr® Capex Strategy will not only redesign the way you think of capital allocation and budgeting – it also has the potential to increase your future cash flow by up to 100%.
This is done by ignoring capex project’s NPV/IRR/paybacks – since those are irrelevant for capital allocation. Corporations today have bottom-up capex processes where the strategy is executed and shaped by the single capex decisions.
Weissr® Capex Strategy helps corporations to maximize long-term cash flow by facilitating a proven capex process with a whole-business perspective that guides the capex decisions from top-down. The result is a significant increase of company cash flow, which our references would testify to.

Weissenrieder & Co mainly works in the Americas and Europe enabling capital-intensive companies to significantly improve asset decision-making and cash flow generation, unleashing 100s of millions and sometimes billions of dollars in enterprise value. With over 25 years of experience in capital allocation and management we have identified severe problems within traditional Capex Management that results in wasted capital for companies. In truth most companies do not realize this because the problems are the very methods, perspectives, processes and systems used to analyze and support the major capex decisions among production sites.

To maximize future cash flow generation, it is essential for all companies to find the best capex strategy to guide the capex decisions.
