Liquidity is always the primary concern when businesses are underperforming. We help to implement strategies quickly and efficiently across all areas of an organization, to reduce costs and improve liquidity.

This may involve moving forward on several activities, including:

  • intervention, stabilization and stakeholder communication
  • reduction of working capital requirements
  • short-term cash management and monitoring
  • cash flow forecasting
  • design and implementation of rapid performance improvement and value recovery plans

When an existing corporate structure no longer meets your business objectives, we’ll help you to identify surplus entities, release capital, reduce operating costs and achieve a leaner, more transparent corporate structure.

Our tailored approach is designed to help you address the critical issues, reduce risk and create a smooth transition to a streamlined operating model.

When external or internal pressures dictate withdrawal from a country or territory, industry, company, market or brand, we can help you design and execute a controlled exit plan to protect you from unnecessary losses in enterprise value.

Our methodology is designed to help you make confident decisions that improve shareholder returns, mitigate delays and diminish disposal costs—regardless of the number, location and complexity of facilities or operations affected.

We deliver restructuring solutions to companies facing financial underperformance, lenders and other stakeholders involved with them. We’ve designed these solutions to help re-establish the pathway to success and financial and operational stability.

Whether through formal or informal restructuring proceedings, we work with companies and their stakeholders to develop detailed action plans for business improvement, simplification, restructuring or divestment, so parties can make the decisions they need to in order to build value for the future, with speed and confidence.

Our team of experienced corporate finance and restructuring specialists can help you zone in on areas of concern to quickly generate liquidity through sourcing additional or replacement financing and, where appropriate, increasing proceeds from the disposal of non-core assets or business units. We assist through:

  • debt and capital advisory
  • balance sheet deleveraging
  • optimization of capital structure
  • lender renegotiations
  • assessment of collateral

When a business is facing severe financial distress, taking action early can help facilitate a successful turnaround. When turnaround isn’t possible, we can help clarify available options, reduce loss exposure and increase returns in an insolvency.

Depending on the situation, we may help financial lenders, suppliers, corporate directors, senior management or other stakeholders navigate complex insolvency law and reduce overall costs in the process.
