Creating stability in changing times
We take an independent view of your business going forward and an integrated approach, covering commercial opportunities and current financing. We can help you consider how you could enter new markets, if that’s your ambition, how you could adapt production operations, if appropriate, how to secure future revenue and more.
Building this into a robust business plan, we can help you make sure any potential lender has a clear, comprehensive and independent assessment of your current situation. And can tailor the review to accommodate a specific lender’s request to get the financing you require.
Taking a deep dive into the issues at hand, we identify the origin of the cause of distress before looking for an appropriate solution. This means stabilising the business first by putting major investments on hold, for example.
We then devise an optimal solution and work with you to implement it.
Once you have drawn up a plan to revitalise your business, in whatever form, we help you approach and gain the buy-in of all stakeholders, including shareholders, investors, management and employees.
The plan forms the basis for the business going forward and outlines what will happen within what timeframe, as well as the role of each stakeholder in the process.
If you decide to sell a troubled entity, we can help you identify the most appropriate party to sell to, shortlist suitable candidates who are experienced in this kind of deal and who have the capacity and capability to turn it around, and organise the best possible deal.
With a complete understanding of the market, PwC is ideally placed and trusted to provide an independent opinion to buyers, and help your business get back on track.
We can help you liquidate an asset and gain the most value from the process. Working with administrators, we’re able to support the sale of a business in whole or parts, using data analytics to identify recent failings that led to the bankruptcy and where value may still be found.
We work closely with the board of directors throughout the process, providing support with all matters relating to insolvency proceedings.
For businesses in trouble, we take an in-depth view of all operational processes to help you stop spending working capital on non-value add activities and optimise processes to help turn your business around.
We not only consider how you can cut costs, but what sort of business model would best revitalise your business, including whether or not certain operations should be carved out. We then stay with you to help implement our advice.
