In times of economic downturn we often see that healthy companies also can encounter difficult situations. Quick and decisive action is than of utmost importance. Facing reality is often the first step towards a solution.
Our approach begins with the creation of a clear financial perception of the situation. How is the equity capital being construed? What are the costs of debt? Which activities generate cash and which activities lose cash? What are the cash flows, the cash requirements and earnings capacity? Our expertise, experience and our sophisticated valuation tools enables us to quickly and efficiently draw a picture of the financial situation.
A clear perception of the financial structure provides the starting point for researching a variety of solutions. Creativity is an important aspect of that research. Recapitalisations, renegotiating loan maturity, closure or divestment of certain company segments, cooperation within the industry column or (temporary) downsizing can all be part of the solution. The consequences of every option is being detailed and compared with the expectations and possibilities of the owner-manager.
Once the choice has been made, quick execution is required to achieve desired results. Our network and expertise can be used to search for potential acquirers, to negotiate with financiers and to convince parties of the feasibility of the plans based on thorough financial analysis.
