3. Corporate and Business Restructuring

Corporate restructuring is about making major changes to the general operations, structure or outstanding debt of a business, with the goal of solving one or more significant problems within that business. These problems will typically be causing financial harm and putting the entire business at risk. A company restructure aims to eliminate the problems and in doing so, greatly improve the business’s chance of success in the future.

Restructuring should be called “Business Improvement”. It’s a form of strategic planning that aims to support profitability and provide a pathway to success. Corporate restructuring is more than just looking at cash flow; it involves looking at the entire business to assess its strengths and weaknesses, identifying improvement opportunities and harnessing resources in new ways to meet business objectives and financial goals.

Our experienced team, led by John Woodward, has extensive experience and knowledge in restructuring a business and strategic planning.  Whether it’s a corporate restructure (cutting costs, payroll reduction, the sale of assets, etc) or a debt restructure (consolidating debt, managing cash flow, adjusting terms, etc), we’ve got what it takes to put your business back on the track to success.

If you’d like to discuss your unique situation, or you’d like more information on how to restructure a company, feel free to call a member of our team on 1800 994 279, or send us a message on our contact form.
