Restructuring and Crisis Management

Our business recovery services include refinancing by existing and new financing partners, the inclusion of equity partners into risk limitation processes, the identification and implementation of measures to reduce costs and gain access to liquidity, and advice on insolvency if required.

Business review and support with going concern analyses

As part of an independent business review or a going concern analysis, we create a shared basis of information accepted by all participants. In this way, we can move from discussions of the development of the company to concrete solutions. Within a going concern analysis, a restructuring concept will be prepared and documented in line with generally accepted principles.

Advice on financial restructuring

Does your company need access to capital? Are you negotiating with partners on the extension of credit lines? We will bring suitable partners together or help you successfully conclude negotiations with existing partners.

PwC provides advice on debt restructuring and provides support during negotiations with investors. In addition, PwC develops and implements measures for short-term release of liquidity and to strengthen the liquidity position of the company.

Support during operational restructuring

Operational restructuring aims to improve the profit situation and the viability of a business undergoing a crisis in the short term. Strategic restructuring makes it possible to restore competitiveness on a sustainable basis and thus guarantee viability in the long term.

The success of a transformation depends to a significant degree on implementation. The preparation of a transformation plan is an essential first step. To prepare and implement a transformation plan, we support you in the following areas:

  • Detailed analysis of the current situation and the financial position for increased transparency
  • Identification and detailing of long-term measures for improvement
  • Documentation of the transformation plan
  • Implementation of the plan using a structured PMO

Accelerated M&A

When selling a business (unit) during a crisis, the differences between accelerated and standard M&A processes must be taken into account. During restructuring, time pressure not only reduces the overall duration of the process, but also necessitates detailed engagement with optimisation measures. Financing partners also often need to be included in the process.

Together with our M&A colleagues, we support you to sell businesses and business units, or increase capital in crisis situations.

Insolvency services

Sometimes insolvency is unavoidable or simply the better option to minimise personal liability risks. In this case, we work with you to analyse and compare different scenarios in advance, and provide comprehensive advice.

We also support our clients to develop solutions for viable parts of the business or when acquiring assets from other insolvency proceedings.

Bank restructuring solutions

Working together with our clients, we develop strategic alternatives in the area of bank restructuring solutions. Based on a thorough analysis, we make recommendations for restructuring measures, such as portfolio optimisation and transactions, which we accompany from the preparation phase through to final implementation.
