Troubled Company Advisory

What is Troubled Company Advisory?

Organizations at risk for, or undergoing, bankruptcy, financial restructuring and workouts, asset recovery, or reorganization require expertise not typically found within their four walls. The benefit of service from qualified advisors can make the difference between shutting down or surviving through a difficult time. If the service is secured in time, many times organizations facing these difficult decisions can avoid those consequences all together.

How does it Work?

A thorough examination of a troubled company includes analysis of the industry, financial performance, operations, management structure, employees, customer and supplier relationships, contractual agreements, in-place strategies, processes and standards, and any other critical factors that guide or impact decision making in the business. The analysis often includes modeling that allows for what-if scenario construction, rigorous process analysis, employee and management interviews, and customer and supplier interviews. The analysis will result in a plan that will effectively guide owners and management teams through bankruptcy, restructuring, or reorganization, or, with adequate time, avoid them entirely. The plan may address multiple tactics to include many of the following:

  • cash management
  • strategic planning
  • profit improvement
  • operational improvement
  • financial restructuring
  • debt restructuring and preparation of financing memorandum
  • SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, & Threats) analysis
  • development of both short-term and long-term strategies
  • examination of financial controls and segregation of duties
