Restructuring

Our Restructuring & Corporate Finance Competence Center

Restructuring is becoming an issue that not only affects both sides of the balance sheet, but also requires liaising between different stakeholder groups. At the same time, with companies becoming increasingly international, more attention needs to be focused on local market peculiarities when restructuring and financing companies. That's why Roland Berger Strategy Consultants has set up a global Restructuring & Corporate Finance Competence Center with more than 100 experts, offering clients a new and comprehensive approach.

 
HOLISTIC APPROACH OF STRATEGIC, OPERATIONAL AND FINANCIAL RESTRUCTURING
 

Consistently applying the key success factors of 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.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.

 
Cornerstones of entrepreneurial restructuring
 

The Practice Group Restructuring of Roland Berger Strategy Consultants provides top management and investors/creditors with excellent concepts for both operational and 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 CRO.

 
Options for CRO support from Roland Berger
 

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.
