COMPANY RESTRUCTURING: ACTIVITIES EN CORE VALUE

What does restructuring a company or business mean?

Restructuring improves the financial structure of companies.

These are difficult times for many companies. The current crisis has hit the economy mercilessly hard. Companies have to pull out all the stops to avoid bankruptcy. Never before have the problems for many been so great; turnover is dropping and liquidity is under pressure.

What can you still do to turn the tide? The future is uncertain, business financing is considered by many to be a lifebelt. For the time being, there is great uncertainty at what level and at what pace demand for your product will recover. Perhaps opting for structural restructuring, such as reorganising labour costs or ceasing certain activities, is the better option then.

The focus is on cash flow, while the trust between companies and suppliers and customers is declining. Debtor positions are increasing. Is a new framework for a long-term strategic plan needed at this time?

Are you struggling with an uncertain continuity perspective with issues such as optimising the financial structure of the company, or business restructuring and restoring profitability?

 

Why should a company restructure?

Restructuring is necessary to limit or prevent liquidity problems or to avoid bankruptcy . The timely reorganization of a company or business is usually the solution

There are several reasons why a company chooses to restructure:

  • Preventing bankruptcy
  • If you need additional business financing
  • If you have to go into special administration
  • When your sales market changes structurally
  • If the internal problems in your company are piling up
  • You are facing problems with the succession of your company
  • You want a different future for your business

 

We help you with questions on corporate finance and the continuity perspective that is closely related to it. These are complex issues that require broad expertise and speed. That's why different subject specialists work closely together in solving them, such as advisers who look at the company's market perspective and advisers who can optimise the financial structure.

Cash flow forecast

This presentation indicates the problems within the company and especially the possible solutions. Sometimes we request permission to make direct contact with the bank and the tax authorities on behalf of our client, in order to discuss our first impressions.

We also draw up a list of action points that require immediate attention.

Risk assessment

In addition to the risk assessment, we take a close look at the developments in your market segment, the state of affairs within your own organisation and your personal ambitions and wishes.

A new financing structure

Sound business financing secures the future of your company. We help you design the optimal capital structure and select the most appropriate financing institution.

We have contact with the creditors, including banks, tax authorities and creditors. If necessary, a proposal will be made to restructure the financing.

Due to new entrants with surprising and innovative business models, the market is constantly changing. Companies must constantly adapt to these changes in order to maintain their market position. For many companies, this means that they have to redesign their organisation and processes.

 


DE MOST FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT A STRATEGIC AMBITI

 

Do you need a quickproblem analysis and advice because you need to (necessarily) reorient yourselftowards the future?

The success of a business depends on external and internal environmental factors. For various reasons companies can get into financial difficulties. Increasing competition or a sudden drop in demand. Failing management or changing market conditions. All these factors can lead to mounting losses.

For some companies, quick corporate recovery measures are sufficient. These solutions give you, as a business owner, "a bit more air" temporarily. Sometimes more permanent corporate recovery measures are required. These may involve the implementation of a more businesslike corporate culture or a reorganisation. In either case, you must involve all stakeholders in the recovery operation. Not just investors, banks and financial institutions, but also management and employees.

We are the experienced partner when it comes to corporate recovery. We can draw up a revitalisation plan in consultation with you. A revitalisation plan helps put the necessary changes into effect. In this way you can prevent the threat of escalation from jeopardising the continued existence of your company.

 

 Do you need additional or new business financing to restore profitability?

In debt advisory, the focus is on making your company profitable.

The economic situation has hit certain sectors hard and banks have tightened their requirements. Companies with an uncertain perspective for continuity have to deal with issues in the field of optimizing the financial structure of the company, or business restructuring, and restoring profitability, or debt advisory.

We help you with questions on corporate finance and the continuity perspective that is closely related to it. These are complex issues that require broad expertise. That's why different subject specialists work closely together in solving them, such as advisers who look at the company's market perspective and advisers who can optimise the financial structure.

 

The bank wants to transfer my company to special administration, what do I do now?

After the banking crisis of 2008, in 2020 the world is facing a crisis from an entirely different angle. Most companies will be confronted with totally unexpected changes and (for the time being) a new reality. Entrepreneurs must reorientate themselves for the future, often under great pressure.

In this phase, stakeholder management is of great importance. How are the interests of, for example, employees, debtors, creditors, financiers and tax authorities weighed? In a limited time important decisions will have to be taken that lead to the continuity of the company. Depending on the problem, choices have to be made. Our team of specialists will stand beside you during this process. Because of our broad expertise we can optimally serve companies with the development of a new financial and/or operational structure and strategic changes. We have extensive experience in maintaining contacts with bank(s), managing bank(s) expectations and negotiating with bank(s) on (credit) conditions and other relevant issues.

 

Are you looking for an improvement plan for operational excellence?

Due to new entrants with surprising and innovative business models, the market is constantly changing. Companies must constantly adapt to these changes in order to maintain their market position. For many companies, this means that they have to redesign their organisation and processes.

 

A well-founded organizational advice starts with an analysis of the current organization, circumstances and challenges, of course in close cooperation with you. We then explore a number of development directions in which we outline the conditions for success. In addition to being an independent sparring partner, we can also be involved in implementing the strategy and guiding the processes towards results. At the heart of our approach is a flexible approach, close cooperation with our clients and the inventiveness of our organisational advice and solutions.
