By adopting a global expansion strategy, SNC was able continue to grow its revenues without tying too much cash up in inventory. Although, the FCF at the beginning of this phase was negative, it was made up over the remainder of phase 3. This phase resulted in an additional value creation of $715,000, but also resulted in a cash surplus of $740,000 at the end of 2021. This may be seen as a failure to invest by some investors, but it also provides SNC with extra cash to pay its liabilities or invest more in a future project.

SNC was able to continually create value in each of the three phases through pre and post strategic financial analysis that enabled leadership to make beneficial decisions. Leadership learned that although there are many decisions to make within the short term, a vision of long-term sustainable growth is critical to the success of a business.
