David Cifrino was featured in an article on CorporateBoardMember.com (September 3) regarding board members and the concerns they face heading into 2010. Government involvement is one of the major concerns for boards. Mr. Cifrino commented, “There are lots of bills pending. Directors need to ask about legislation and how it will impact their company.” Economic uncertainties and preparing for the future are also among concerns for board members. Mr. Cifrino noted that cash is crucial during these uncertain economic times. “Companies need to be vigilant about liquidity. I find that [public] companies need to be proactive in ensuring liquidity for their companies. Lenders are not in a mood to be generous in terms of lending. Boards should push management to explain what’s the plan now. Develop a strategy to deal with retooling the balance sheet, do what you can to assure liquidity. It’s all about cash generation,” he said.
