Troubled Company

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 difficult decisions can avoid dire consequences altogether.

How does it work?

A thorough examination of a troubled company includes analysis of the industry, the company’s 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, employee and management interviews, customer and supplier interviews, and rigorous process analysis. 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 include multiple tactics to address 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, and Threats) analysis
  • development of both short-term and long-term strategies
  • examination of financial controls and segregation of duties
