Please see the link below and the attached file


Watch one episode of The Profit, a television show on CNBC featuring Marcus Lemonis. Marcus is an investor who helps struggling/failing businesses turn their fortunes around. The typical flow of the show is as follows:

  • Marcus meets the business owner(s) and gets a feel for where the business is. This always includes a review of financial statements. 
  • Marcus makes a financial offer for part of the business. The owners may try to negotiate with Marcus to get a better deal. 
  • After the deal is made, Marcus implements changes aimed at turning the company around. 
  • By the end of the show, it is usually apparent whether or not the deal has a chance at   success. Either the owners have followed through on Marcus’ advice and signs of a turnaround appear, or the owners have fallen back into old habits that will almost certainly doom the business.
