Special Situations:

During a period of financial distress, an objective outside perspective can provide clarity on a viable path forward. Stakeholders often turn to independent experts like us to benefit from our unbiased vantage point in assessing the situation.

We believe the key to a successful and sustainable  resolution is to unravel a complex situation and therefore our advisory process begins with a detailed business review, identifying the specific factors causing stress. Combining our team’s financial expertise with the operational understanding of the business we develop, we objectively assess challenges to pinpoint the specific factors causing stress. This paves the way for tailored turnaround solutions that address the circumstances, leveraging alternative funding sources, divestments, restructuring and hands-on intervention where required. Should the situation progress towards insolvency, we work closely with legal advisors to manage the process and recovery.

Our services encompass a comprehensive range of solutions:

  • Detailed Business Review to Identify Stress Factors: We conduct in-depth business reviews to pinpoint stress factors, ensuring a thorough understanding of the challenges at hand.
  • Balance Sheet Restructure:  We offer expert guidance on loan portfolio reviews and restructures, exploring alternative funding sources for a sustainable future. Our post-restructuring monitoring ensures continued success.
