The Consulting industry, over the last few decades, has been at the forefront of helping firms navigate their key Enterprise Transformation initiatives. The industry has typically helped clients navigate these transformations through an optimal combination of proprietary frameworks, IP, tools, and a team of consultants trained with in-house consulting methodologies. 

However, the accelerated advancement of Next-gen technologies in the last few years and increased adoption of the same by clients for organization improvement initiatives has rendered a number of hitherto traditional consulting services redundant such that the industry finds itself now in the throes of disruption and needs to reinvent and transform to stay relevant!

Given the above context, we highlight the top 5 trends that we think will shape the Consulting industry over the next decade and which the industry will be best served to pay attention to

  1. Execution over Strategy – While Strategy will continue to be important, clients will increasingly give precedence to consulting firms who can walk the talk and take strategy through to execution and deliver on the outcomes for the fees they charge. For example, the classic strategy’s share of work has been steadily decreasing and is now about 20%, down from 60% to 70% some 30 years ago, according to Kennedy Consulting Research & Advisory. Strategy consultancy firms have recognized this threat and have made a number of moves toward the execution aspects through acquisitions, partnerships, or building digital platforms.
  2. Technology will be at the core of any Consulting – Technology will be at the core of almost every form of consulting. Business leaders have historically always delegated technology and IT enablement to specialists. As a result, technology had seldom been a part of the C-Suite board room strategy discussions. That will no longer be the case. With new emerging technologies and business models, clients will increasingly want to know the ‘How’ part of the Strategy from all Consulting firms and will expect Consulting firms to up their game in being able to deliver the desired business outcomes through the optimal combination of next-gen technologies  – automation, AI, big data, digital and Cloud to deliver on outcomes such as user experience, employee experience, productivity, process improvement, agility, etc.
  3. Skin in the game will become the norm than a differentiator. Clients will expect consulting firms to be accountable to the fees being paid and tie a part of their fees to the outcomes achieved. While this is currently already being used by some firms as a differentiator, this will become a defacto model of operations in the future.
  4. End of the monolith – the rise of ecosystems and modular certified –  Consulting firms will increasingly form partnerships with a broader ecosystem of specialist partners, each of whom brings a unique capability to the table in which they excel. As more specialist boutique firms continue to emerge, the era of a single monolithic setup with one Consulting organization handling all aspects will be a thing of the past. Clients now recognize that several certified and boutique firms can deliver the desired outcomes at a fraction of the cost by leveraging the latest technologies. The traditional firms will have to partner with these specialist firms while owning the overall transformation accountability. There are already increasing trends of this playing out in significant Transformations with multi-vendor scenarios.
  5. Work from anywhere will be the norm; hybrid – While the pandemic has already accelerated and established the hybrid model of working, this will go one step further to a ‘work from anywhere’ option. Clients will increasingly be less concerned about where the talent is located as long as they get the right talent at the right value. As a result, location flexibility will become a key decision influencer for consultants as they choose firms. Firms that offer maximum flexibility will be the ones who will be able to attract the best talent.

As these trends strengthen over the next few years and become mainstream, Consulting firms will do well to adapt to these earlier than later to avoid transitioning from the ones helping clients navigate their disruptions to the ones being disrupted themselves.

Killexams : Move over, operators — consultants are the new nontraditional VC

Operating experience has become a buzzword over the last few years as venture capitalists pump up their resumes in a quest to set themselves apart from other sources of startup capital. Now, it seems that we are seeing the next evolution of that trend.

This year has seen a wave of startup consultant firms looking to raise venture funds of their own to take stakes in companies they are already working with or that align with their practice. In theory, this makes total sense because both consultants and venture capitalists have the same goal at the end of the day: helping companies grow.

“Most come on board because we provide the capital, ‘plus.’ What is that plus? The plus with us is storytelling.” FNDR CEO James Vincent

But why are so many consultant-led venture capital funds launching now? It’s a particularly rough time in the broader venture market, and economy in general, in addition to being one of the toughest periods for emerging managers and first-time fundraisers. It’s worth noting that all of these funds are raising outside capital as opposed to investing off their balance sheets.

For one thing, the startups they were already working with were asking them to.

Killexams : Broadband availability: This new map can help you find out what services are available
Image: Getty

The Federal Communications Commission has released a pre-production draft of its new National Broadband Map and wants people across the US to help populate it with information about availability. 

The new broadband maps will be an improvement in accuracy of broadband availability compared to the census block level data the FCC previously collected. The public can view the maps at the FCC's broadband map page where users can search by address or zoom into the maps and click a location. The maps also show which providers are available in each location, while users can download the map data.    

"Today is an important milestone in our effort to help everyone, everywhere get specific information about what broadband options are available for their homes, and pinpointing places in the country where communities do not have the service they need," said FCC chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel. 

"Our pre-production draft maps are a first step in a long-term effort to continuously Improve our data as consumers, providers and others share information with us. By painting a more accurate picture of where broadband is and is not, local, state, and federal partners can better work together to ensure no one is left on the wrong side of the digital divide," she added.  

Also: Technology spending will rise next year. And this old favourite is still a top priority

Now, if the fixed internet services shown on the map are not available at the user's location, users can file a challenge with the FCC through the map interface to correct the information. 

Users can help Improve the map's quality by submitting a "location challenge" and fill in any blank spots in the map. If users see wrong information about broadband availability and which ISPs are available, they can submit an "availability challenge". 

Users can also dispute mobile coverage claims by taking a speed test from a phone using the FCC's Speed Test app. The FCC will share aggregated results in a "mobile challenge" that mobile network operators must respond to.  

Currently, the availability data shown on the maps are submitted by ISPs twice a year through the FCC's Broadband Data Collection.

The FCC received its first broadband availability data from ISPs in June. Previously, the FCC's data collection program required ISPs to report services availability in each census block, which allowed partial coverage of the block to be claimed for the whole census block. It led to the FCC historically underestimating the number of households that lacked access to "fast broadband", which the FCC under the Trump Administration defined as 25 Mbps download and 3 Mbps upload (25/3) speeds.     

Rosenworcel in July proposed the FCC should raise the minimum speeds to 100/20 Mbps.

Killexams : LSI Industries Reports Fiscal 2023 First Quarter Results and Declares Quarterly Cash Dividend

CINCINNATI--()--LSI Industries Inc. (NASDAQ: LYTS, “LSI” or the “Company”) a leading U.S. based manufacturer of display solutions and indoor/outdoor lighting, today reported financial results for its fiscal 2023 first quarter.

FISCAL 2023 FIRST QUARTER

  • Net Sales +19% y/y to $127.1 million
  • Net Income +100% y/y to $6.3 million; Adjusted Net Income of $7.1 million
  • Diluted EPS of $0.22; Adjusted EPS of $0.25
  • EBITDA of $12.4 million; Adjusted EBITDA $13.3 million or 10.5%/sales
  • Free Cash Flow of $10.1 million
  • Debt net leverage decline of 32% y/y to 1.7x

For the fiscal first quarter 2023, LSI delivered significant year-over-year growth in net sales, driven by strong demand in the Company’s key vertical markets for both Lighting and Display Solution products. Operating Income, net income, and adjusted EBITDA each increased substantially on a year-over-year basis in the first quarter, driven by a combination of higher net sales and strong margin realization.

The Company reported fiscal first quarter net sales of $127.1 million, an increase of 19% versus the prior-year period. Reported net income was $6.3 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, versus $3.1 million, or $0.11 per diluted share in the prior-year period. Adjusted net income was $7.1 million, or $0.25 per diluted share in the fiscal first quarter, compared to $3.5 million, or $0.13 per diluted share last year.

The Company reported adjusted EBITDA of $13.3 million in the fiscal first quarter, an increase of 76% versus the prior-year period. LSI reported an adjusted EBITDA margin rate of 10.5% in the first quarter, versus 7.1% in the first quarter last year, driven by a combination of volume growth, improved price realization, disciplined cost management and a more favorable sales mix. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial results is included in the attached press release schedules.

LSI generated free cash flow of $10.1 million in the fiscal first quarter, driven by year-over-year growth in operating cash flow, together with improved non-cash working capital management. Improved cash flow conversion resulted in a corresponding reduction in the ratio of net debt to trailing twelve-month adjusted EBITDA to 1.7x, LSI’s lowest level in nearly two years.

The Company declared a regular cash dividend of $0.05 per share payable on November 22, 2022, to shareholders of record on November 14, 2022.

MANAGEMENT COMMENTARY

“During a period of broader market volatility, LSI delivered strong first quarter results, highlighted by substantial growth in net sales, margin rate, and profitability,” stated James A. Clark, President, and Chief Executive Officer of LSI. “These strong results reflect continued execution of our vertical market strategy, which prioritizes resource allocation toward those highest-return opportunities where LSI is uniquely positioned to win. Our bundled solutions, technical expertise and customer-centric service model remain key areas of competitive differentiation for us, positioning us to drive margin expansion. Despite widely recognized inflationary headwinds, we achieved an adjusted EBITDA margin rate of 10.5% in the first quarter, LSI’s highest in over ten years, a testament to the efforts of our entire team.

“We generated strong year-over-year growth in free cash flow during the first quarter, resulting in a further reduction in our net leverage to 1.7x, or the lowest in nearly two years,” continued Clark. “With supply chains continuing to stabilize, we have reduced the pace of investment in new inventory to ensure product availability, leading to a corresponding improvement in non-cash working capital efficiency. We expect that, for the full-year fiscal 2023, we are on-track to deliver significant year-over-year improvement in free cash flow and debt reduction, the combination of which will enable the company to pursue opportunistic organic and inorganic growth investments.

“During the fiscal first quarter, we continued to see quote and order activity across our vertical markets outpace growth rates within the broader, domestic non-residential construction market,” continued Clark. “Total first quarter orders were 12% above the prior-year period, with both the Lighting and Display Solutions segments achieving double digit growth, building upon solid prior year results.

“At this year’s annual National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS) conference, we had one of our most successful trade shows in years, with strong interest from customers and partners,” noted Clark. “At the trade show we launched our REDiMount™ product, revolutionary lighting solution for refueling station/convenience store canopies that reduces installation time by more than 50%. This product is an excellent example of our collaborative, customer-centric approach to product innovation, an approach that facilitates rapid adoption our products as they come to market.

“Our Lighting segment had an outstanding quarter with sales increasing over 30%, gross margin rate improving 290 bps, and operating income increasing 109% compared to the same quarter last year. Demand for our products was strong across all channels, including double-digit sales growth in both project business and shipments to distributor stock.

“Our efforts over the last two years to strengthen our lighting offering for select vertical market applications continues to position LSI to win additional business. While sales for both indoor and outdoor products increased significantly, first quarter sales for key indoor applications increased by more than doubled versus the prior year, driven primarily by new product introductions. We continue meet the demanding delivery/service requirements of the market, capitalizing on our supply chain capabilities, and recently reduced lead-times for certain key products. First quarter Lighting orders increased 11% compared to the prior year period, and we exited the quarter with a healthy backlog.

“Our Display Solutions segment continued to experience solid sales growth, led by the grocery and refueling/convenience-store verticals,” continued Clark. “The Display Solution gross margin rate increased 450 bps compared to the prior year-period, reflecting improved pricing on all major project programs, together with favorable project mix. As a result, operating income improved more than 70% versus the year-ago period. Inquiries and design work for prospective new programs continue at a healthy level in our largest vertical markets, which include Grocery, Refueling/C-Store and QSR (Quick Serve Restaurants). Display Solutions orders for the first quarter were 12% above prior year. We have strong, well-established positions with both companies in the recently announced combination of two of the nation’s largest grocery store chains and are excited about future growth opportunities.

“Total Display Solution sales were constrained during the first quarter, as shipments of digital menu board systems to quick-serve restaurant (QSR) customers were delayed due to site installation scheduling changes and temporary component availability issues. We’ve balanced both the site scheduling and component supply chain challenges for the last eighteen months and expect availability will correct over the near-term, allowing menu-board shipment activity to increase in the fiscal second quarter. In addition, we completed initial turnkey installations of display products for a re-branding program with a global oil company for re-fueling sites in Puerto Rico. The majority of installations for this $10+ million program are scheduled for completion in the fiscal second quarter of 2023.

“LSI enters the fiscal second quarter with continued momentum and is well-positioned to build on the success of the last two years,” concluded Clark. “We continue to win additional business in both new and existing market verticals as evidenced by a growing backlog of activity. Relationships with our partners and customers have never been stronger, as they increasingly recognize the value of our solutions and our on-going commitment to satisfy their unique requirements.”

Three Months Ended September 30, 2022, Results

Net sales for the three months ended September 30, 2022, were $127.1 million, up 19% from the three months ended September 30, 2021, net sales of $106.4 million. Lighting Segment net sales of $67.5 million increased 32% and Display Solutions Segment net sales of $59.6 million increased 8% from last year’s first quarter net sales. Net income for the three months ended September 30, 2022, was $6.3 million, or $0.22 per share, compared to $3.1 million or $0.11 per share for the three months ended September 30, 2021. Earnings per share represents diluted earnings per share.

Balance Sheet

The balance sheet at September 30, 2022, included current assets of $170.4 million, current liabilities of $79.9 million and working capital of $90.5 million, which includes cash of $9.0 million. The current ratio was 2.1 to 1. The balance sheet included shareholders’ equity of $153.7 million and long-term debt of $74.0 million. It is the Company’s priority to continuously generate sufficient cash flow, coupled with an approved credit facility, to adequately fund operations.

Cash Dividend Actions

The Board of Directors declared a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.05 per share in connection with the first quarter of fiscal 2023, payable November 22, 2022, to shareholders of record as of the close of business on November 14, 2022. The indicated annual cash dividend rate is $0.20 per share. The Board of Directors has adopted a policy regarding dividends which provides that dividends will be determined by the Board of Directors in its discretion based upon its evaluation of earnings both on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis, cash flow requirements, financial condition, debt levels, stock repurchases, future business developments and opportunities, and other factors deemed relevant by the Board.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes adjustments to GAAP operating income, net income, and earnings per share for the three months ended September 30, 2022, and 2021. Operating income, net income, and earnings per share, which exclude the impact of stock compensation expense, commercial growth opportunity expense, and severance costs, are non-GAAP financial measures. We exclude these items because we believe they are not representative of the ongoing results of operations of the business. Also included in this press release are non-GAAP financial measures, including Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA), and Free Cash Flow. We believe that these are useful as supplemental measures in assessing the operating performance of our business. These measures are used by our management, including our chief operating decision maker, to evaluate business results, and are frequently referenced by those who follow the Company. These non-GAAP measures may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. In addition, the non-GAAP measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. Non-GAAP measures have limitations, in that they do not reflect all amounts associated with our results as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Therefore, these measures should be used only to evaluate our results in conjunction with corresponding GAAP measures. Below is a reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to net income and earnings per share reported for the periods indicated along with the calculation of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Free Cash Flow, and Net Debt to Adjusted EBITDA.

Killexams : LSI Industries: Dividend Insights

Wednesday marks the last chance for investors to receive the next dividend payout from LSI Industries LYTS.

What's Happening

The company announced on Wednesday that it would pay shareholders a quarterly dividend of 5 cents per share. On Thursday, LSI Industries will go ex-dividend, meaning the stock will trade lower to reflect that payout. In other words, the stock will likely open 5 cents lower than it would have opened on any other day.

In order to be eligible to receive a company's dividend, shareholders must own the stock prior to the ex-dividend date—in this case, Thursday. Shareholders who own LYTS as of the end of Wednesday's session are eligible to receive the 5 cents dividend payout for every share that they own.

According to the company, this dividend will be paid out to shareholders on November 22, 2022. Investors will then be able to either reinvest those dividends back into the stock or use the payment in some other way.

Wizards of the Coast commits to engaging with cultural consultants on every one of its Dungeons & Dragons releases going forward. The announcement was listed as part of the latest batch of errata for Spelljammer: Adventures in Space, a campaign book that sparked public outcry in August for the inclusion of racist material.

The blog post, written by Wizards’ game design architect Christopher Perkins, states in no uncertain terms that the studio’s new review process “mandates that every word, illustration, and map must be reviewed by multiple outside cultural consultants prior to publication.” The so-called “inclusion-review process” will take place at multiple points during the development of a product — including during the final assembly, when art and text will be reviewed side by side.

“The new inclusion-review process applies to not only products in development but also reprints,” Perkins said. “In other words, every reprint is an opportunity to conduct a new inclusion review on previously published content.”

Cultural consultants are experts on certain cultures and peoples, and are commonly utilized in vetting materials all across modern media from film and television, to comics, novels, video games, and board games. Such experts have featured prominently in the credits of past D&D books, including this year’s hit adventure anthology, Journeys Through the Radiant Citadel — which is, ironically enough, the first D&D book conceived of an executed exclusively by writers of color.

No cultural consultants are listed in the credits for Spelljammer, an oversight that Wizards said lead directly to this summer’s incident in which racist text and art were included in that product. Indeed, multiple changes have been made to Spelljammer since its release date. The latest batch, also released today, includes several adjustments to creatures to make them less racially inclined toward avariciousness and greed.

With its next release, Dragonlance: Shadow of the Dragon Queen, Wizards is fully embracing its digital future by selling the physical book in a bundle with its digital equivalent. Those digital materials, it seems, will be much more of a living and evolving document going forward. Case in point: All of the changes mentioned in today’s errata have already been implemented online in D&D Beyond.

Thursday’s announcement was made against the backdrop of a nasty lawsuit being fought between Wizards and the newly resurrected TSR, an entity which Wizards bought in 1997. The Seattle-based publisher recently requested an injunction against TSR citing what it calls “despicable” and “blatantly racist and transphobic” content that, if released, could damage the D&D brand. The case is still in the discovery phase, and is set to go to trial in Oct. 2023.
