Restructuring

Life-threatening company crises generally follow the same pattern: the strategic crisis spills over into an earnings crisis that ends up triggering a liquidity crisis. These developments can lead to insolvency if companies fail to take corrective action.

In order to stop and reverse this development, management needs a sound restructuring program that works.

In brief

Consistently applying the key success factors of restructuring

The first key success factor is top management's full commitment. But it is also essential to take a holistic approach which considers the strategic positioning, the operational restructuring and the financial situation of the company. Implementation speed is another very important aspect of successful restructuring.

The Global Restructuring Core Group of Roland Berger Strategy Consultants provides top management and investors/creditors with excellent restructuring concepts both operational and also for a financial restructuring. In addition, we support the entire implementation process and ensure that necessary actions are taken quickly. We can also provide the company with senior experts who have considerable experience and who can act as interim managers.

 
OUR OPERATIONAL RESTRUCTURING APPROACH HAS FOUR KEY STRENGTHS
 

We draw upon our vast experience gained from well over 2,000 restructuring projects. These projects involved both SMEs as well as international groups throughout all industries. We leverage all our know-how to secure that all success factors are actually implemented. This helps our clients overcome their crisis and grow profitably again.
