Turnaround Strategies

We advise on the management of crisis processes, with a multidisciplinary approach and aligned with our clients’ business vision.

Turnaround Strategies identify the stage of the critical cycle in which the company is in, to define a joint action plan and execute it.

To know if a company that is going through financial difficulty should make use of a transformation strategy, it is necessary to ask yourself several questions:

  • Do I have the capability to respond to different stress scenarios?
  • How long can I operate considering my cashflow and spending patterns?
  • What resources are available and how quickly can they be accessed?
  • How stable is the customer base and what percentage of concentration is there in a customer sector?
  • What is the portfolio turnover and how is it performing against budget?
  • Who are the main suppliers? What’s their situation?

The alternatives created by these strategies are summarized in 4 stages that vary according to the level of complexity and risk that the company is going through: Business Relief, Mediation and Negotiation, Reorganization and Liquidation.

Our interdisciplinary team advises on all stages of the turnaround strategy, together with strategic allies (technical and financial) that allow us to meet the needs of our clients in a comprehensive manner.
