Act now to recover

Maximise your options and together we can restructure for your recovery


Being proactive is the key to successful business recovery

Even the strongest of businesses will be experiencing unprecedented challenges, and businesses need to have complete control over the complex financial, operational and strategic challenges that may be encountered to drive success through a strong recovery. A proactive approach to managing uncertainty will make the difference.

The route to recovery is unlikely to be smooth though and whether you represent a large corporate or a private business  – you need to quickly assemble all the right technical skills and know-how at scale and keep control of your business. Our approach is as much about how we do things, as what we do. We will listen, guide, empathise and collaborate. PwC’s market leading capital advisory and restructuring services mean you can rely on our support from start to finish, drawing on the expertise of our colleagues from Tax to Consulting and across the firm to provide the specialist knowledge you need in order to act now to recover.

There are four critical elements detailed below that you should focus on, and formulate a clear plan to address, in order to take and retain control of your business. These are like the wheels of a car – unless all four are in the best possible shape, even the most powerful vehicle won’t get anywhere.

Maximise your options and together we can restructure for your recovery.

Four key focus areas for recovery

Is your business resilient in the face of unprecedented challenges and uncertainty? Are you optimising processes and allocating scarce resources appropriately to meet your financial and strategic objectives?

Business models are changing and organisations will need to be proactive in identifying potential operational shortfalls and opportunities, including the best course of action to take, to ensure that they are sustainable. We are able to navigate through these complexities and work with you to achieve desired outcomes.

Cash is the lifeblood of any organisation and having an appropriate understanding of cash flows allows businesses to identify and develop steps to manage liquidity risk and facilitate continuity of operations.

Whether you require support in optimising, or funding, working capital; developing enhanced cash flow reporting processes, or understanding how to unlock trapped cash, we can guide you through the various options available and build tailored solutions.

Are you experiencing a deterioration in profitability, leading to increased balance sheet pressure, debt serviceability concerns and possible covenant breach?

How do you engage with stakeholder groups, with diverging interests, and reach amicable solutions? Our experienced team of professionals can advise on the restructuring options available to you and support with stakeholder management.

If you’re considering “Fix, flog or fold” strategic options, ranging from mergers and acquisitions through to wind-downs of company structures; we are able to support you in assessing these options and how best to apply such options in preserving and/or creating value for stakeholders.
