For companies, their lenders, shareholders or other stakeholders in businesses facing financial under-performance or crisis, we deliver restructuring solutions and help build a platform for recovery. Specifically we can support our clients with the following issues:
When an organisation becomes aware that a subsidiary, business, division, factory, branch or brand is under-performing, our team assists in achieving an optimal recovery of value. We help to identify the issues and evaluate the options available and agree and assist in implementing the chosen approach (e.g. sell, fix and sell, or wind-down). We also identify and help manage the risks inherent in the process. The planned outcome will be an increase in shareholder value by selling, restructuring, closing or winding down the under-performing business or subsidiary.
Our global capabilities, extensive experience, proven methodology and swift service working under pressure of time are our key differentiators. We support our clients:
When organisations undergo severe financial underperformance, any solution is likely to involve operational restructuring. We have significant experience of working in situations where a viable restructuring plan needs to be put in place rapidly. We work alongside management to develop plans which are realistic and pragmatic. We will also support the implementation of plans using a project office approach to centralise turnaround programmes and focus the organisationâ€™s resources towards delivery.

When organisations face a crisis, such as cash flow problems and/or possible default on funding repayments, we can act as a catalyst working alongside management and stakeholders and encouraging all parties to work together. In highly emotive environments, we deliver quick and effective results.

In the short term, we stabilise the financial position of the business and obtain both management and stakeholder buy in. In the longer term, our role is to rebuild confidence and relationships whilst helping management regain control, keeping all parties informed every step of the way.
