How to prevent the crisis from affecting your company?
Detecting your financial risks early on and involving experts in mitigating them is key to preserving your financial stability.
Our business restructuring team has considerable expertise in helping companies recover from a crisis in a fast and efficient manner. Our experts will promptly identify potential issues at each stage of the crisis, create unique solutions, and conduct their implementation working together with your management. For these reasons, PwC is one of the world’s largest providers of business restructuring services.
Our goal is to offer specific solutions that will have a real impact on our clients’ business, rather than writing theoretical overviews. This is why we create unique value for our clients that is unparalleled on the market. Our business restructuring team draws on the vast professional expertise accumulated across PwC’s global network and tailors it to our clients’ needs at national and international level.

Identifying and implementing operational measures - Improving profitability and liquidity
Identifying and implementing strategic measures - Increasing your company value
If you find that your company is not performing at the optimum level, we can help you recover the optimum value. We will be working with you to identify issues, assess available options, and help you implement your chosen approach (e.g. selling, improving and selling, or liquidating). We tend to avoid a fire-sale scenario. Improving and selling is the preferred exit where we combine our expertise in improvement and liquidation to maximise the deal value.
Key activities for optimised M&A:
PwC supports owners facing an urgent need for cash or authorised persons in insolvency cases who are responsible for immediately selling the entire business or certain assets of the debtor.
By taking correct early action, companies facing financial distress or insolvency can fully restore their solvency.
Often companies run into financial difficulties or are aware of the threat that they may find themselves in. There are also situations when a company is already threatened with insolvency, but it can be avoided by applying the right solutions in a timely manner.
By involving our team of experts consisting of lawyers, financial, business management, or tax consultants, we can help you find the best solution. We have experience in solving solvency problems for both small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and large companies.
