lead financial advisory
We provide companies, their lenders, shareholders and other stakeholders with comprehensive financial advice to support a range of financial requirements, including balance sheet restructuring, raising additional capital or refinancing.
independent business reviews
Our team is either appointed by financial actors who have concerns about a company they are interested in, and wants to hire independent rapporteurs to review the situation, or by a company itself that needs to understand the reasons for underperforming better. Our independent Business Review clarifies the case for both financial players and the company by providing a clear assessment of the operational activity. Our services are tailored to the specific circumstances of each situation to review individual aspects of the organization.
A solid business plan and support for financial projections are important when stakeholders need financial planning or operational planning as a basis for financial restructuring. Also, measures are planned to enable poorly performing companies to secure their operations at an early stage.
Operational Restructuring & Cost Reduction
A genuinely successful solution to restructuring often requires some form of operational change and performance improvement. Our experts stabilize financial and operational performance and can deliver tangible and sustainable benefits to improve a company's underlying processes and increase shareholder value. Our expertise focuses on corporate reorganizations, including site closures, increased profits (mainly through cost-cutting opportunities) and the provision of alternatives for new capital to improve cash flow.
In challenging situations where companies face liquidity constraints and other business crises, we provide credibility and practical support and experience to help management teams address the various financial, operational and strategic issues they face at this difficult time. In such situations, it is imperative that management can forecast and manage short-term liquidity to maintain business continuity, maintain the trust of key stakeholders, and sustain the ongoing business while developing and delivering restructuring solutions. We support management teams by rapidly implementing active cash management procedures - to take immediate control of cash flows while allowing leeway in which stakeholders assess the options available to the company and make decisions.
Short-Term Cash Management
For companies with liquidity shortages, pro-active and short-term cash management is often a necessary strategy to extend the time to prepare, negotiate and execute a restructuring plan. We help with short-term liquidity forecasting and implement procedures to improve the visibility of cash requirements. The RE-ACT team helps to develop active liquidity management to determine current assets and other cash flow positions to improve cash flow and minimize additional liquidity support.
We take strategic decision-making to boost the company's performance, prioritize, create morale, and maintain continuity. Our partners are ready to step in when companies face operational, financial or management challenges. We can quickly take leadership positions to prioritize companies, motivate employees, and ensure critical continuity. Our executives work in the following roles: Chief Executive Officer, Chief Operating Officer, Chief Financial Officer, Vice President of Corporate Finance and Head of Reporting and Controlling. We have experience at the highest level of business, often in senior positions in large companies across industries and geographies. RE-ACT is committed to providing a quick overview of the operational, competitive and regulatory environment. Interim executives can also hire specialized technology, marketing, sales, tax, and bankruptcy experts to solve specific organizational challenges and further support the restructuring process.
Restructuring Tax Advisory
Together with its partners, RE-ACT develops pragmatic and practical solutions when it comes to refinancing, restructuring, and restructuring. We are at the center of every transaction, especially when divestments are included in a restructuring plan. In doing so, we ensure a tax-efficient execution of the plan with our partners.
insolvency and contingency planning
Our experts use their expertise in bankruptcy and enforcement procedures to ensure efficient and effective contingency planning in the context of bankruptcy counseling. We develop strategic restructuring plans with our customers, either as an alternative to a mutually agreed restructuring agreement or to facilitate a restructuring process. Also, we provide valuations and develop closure options or exit strategies for our clients when subsidiaries, a business, a product or an entire business line collapses. In implementing these plans, we do not leave them alone. We offer operational and strategic collaboration by taking on interim leadership roles to help companies through this difficult time.
Sometimes it is not possible or useful to conduct a sales process within a "conventional" divestment period. RE-ACT provides solutions for companies and stakeholders that are committed to a proper exit and minimize the harm to the business that could result from a longer M & A process. Acting on behalf of owners, financial creditors and other stakeholders makes us more efficient and effective in developing and accelerating alternative scenarios.
