Overview

We work alongside businesses to negotiate great outcomes at speed, finding the optimal solution to financial and operational challenges by reducing risk and protecting value where time and cash are tight.

Whether a company has gone from thriving to surviving an imminent crisis, or is just looking to ‘fix the roof while the sun is shining’, we can support management teams to:

  • Reduce balance sheet stress.
  • Generate cash and reduce costs.
  • Increase profitability.
  • Reduce long-term pensions and other liability costs.

Whatever the solution, we pre-empt and manage road blocks until the job is done.

Issues you may be facing

Supporting decision-makers in times of stress or underperformance:


There are many reasons why a business may find itself facing financial difficulties and needing to rapidly improve performance. Triggers for underperformance can include:

  • Declining earnings.
  • Liquidity and cash flow concerns.
  • Disruption.
  • Stakeholder pressure.


But a downward financial spiral is not inevitable. Early detection and decisive action are key to restoring and improving performance and value.
