CORPORATE RESTRUCTURE – RESTRUCTURING
We recognise that each Business is different and it’s important to take time to understand the issues the business is facing. We will closely from the outset to understand the dynamics of the Business, getting to know the customer base, routes to market, cost base, working capital and investment cycles. This will give us a strong foundation on which to advise.
We will analyse historic financial data and get an insight into the underlying reasons why the Business is in financial distress and what options may be available to place it back onto a sustainable footing. We can develop a formal restructuring plan backed up by financial projections that may include the following:
- Business Rationalisation – focusing internally on any actions that can be taken to improve the financial performance and cash generation of the Business such as reducing costs, de-leveraging, restructuring onerous contracts or leases and deleveraging of loss making divisions;
- Negotiating with Creditors & Stakeholders – In situations where the viability of a Business is threatened through exposure to a small number of stakeholders, we can negotiate to agree a fair settlement to allow the Business to continue to trade. This can include Proposals that can be negotiated with Banks, Landlords and other key stakeholders;
- Debt & Equity Raising – We have excellent relationships with a number of funders and Investors and by working closely with our Corporate Finance Advisory team can advise on what options are available to fund cash flow requirements;
- Taxation – With any Restructuring it is important to consider any tax implications and factor in any associated cost.
At Keenan CF we have recent examples of advising on some of the largest and most complex restructuring assignments and would be delighted to discuss any requirements you may have.
