Independent Business Review

For a successful turnaround process an integrated assessment of the company’s current situation and future perspectives for business viability is required, bearing in mind potential constraints.

Our review enables you to obtain an independent business perspective both on a commercial and financial level leading to higher credibility when negotiating with creditors. 

The independent business review is suited to companies in financial difficulties which intend to:

  • Have an independent review of the business to identify solutions
  • Have an independent review of the business plan reflecting operational restructuring measures imposed by the creditor prior to approval of the financial restructuring
  • Prepare a pack of information to negotiate with creditors
  • Obtain independent review of the business and future perspectives, prior to new capital, as imposed by potential investors

We assist our clients in:

  • Diagnosis of the company’s current situation and identification of causes for the financial constraints
  • Review of the historical performance and critical assessment of business plans and long-term perspectives 
  • Benchmarking and comparison with market players
  • Identifying vulnerabilities, risks, opportunities and respective impacts on the company’s viability
  • Assessment of the current capital structure and the sustainable debt level of the business that enable its viability and a win-win situation for both debtor and creditors
