What is Corporate Restructuring?

Corporate restructuring services specifically focus on helping businesses implement changes in their fundamental business structure. The goal of these efforts is to have a positive impact on a company’s daily operations, financial strategy, and profitability. Restructuring is usually appropriate when a company is experiencing financial distress, going through a merger, or acquisition, or when its overall business strategy needs a change in direction.

Key Components of Corporate Restructuring Services

The highly knowledgeable team at SOGID™ Management Consultants can utilize our three decades of business and banking experience to guide your organization in a successful corporate restructuring. We are pleased to offer the following services:

Financial Restructuring

During the process of a corporate restructuring, it is vital to have an accurate understanding of an organization’s current cash flow position, as well as an estimate of what the future holds. SOGID™ Management Consultants will work with your team to optimize your current liquidity, and evaluate your expected payments and receivables. Our team understands how important adequate cash flow is to the long-term viability of a company. We can leverage our extensive knowledge and experience to benefit your organization. Allow us to assist you in gaining a realistic perspective of your cash flow status and develop a strategy to maximize it into the future.

Creditor Management

Businesses cannot survive without having positive relationships with lenders and creditors. These partners play a vital role in every successful restructuring plan, as they must have confidence that an organization will be able to meet their obligations to them. By utilizing such financial tools as cash flow forecasting, and liquidity management, lenders and creditors are much more likely to accept a restructuring plan. The SOGID™ team has decades of experience in rebuilding trust with these critical stakeholders, as well as implementing restructuring plans that substantially involve lenders and creditors. As an objective partner in the restructuring process, we have the skills needed to effectively communicate to lenders and creditors the concept that supporting a well thought out restructuring plan is mutually beneficial to all parties.

Liquidity Management

Regardless of a business’s performance, liquidity plays a huge role in both its short and long-term success. While cash flow is an element of liquidity, the latter provides a much more in-depth view of a company’s ability to utilize its assets to meet financial obligations. It can often be helpful to evaluate an organization’s past liquidity as a foundation to develop a plan on how to meet future needs. The seasoned team at SOGID™ Management Consultants helps our clients fully understand their current liquidity position, and creates strategies on how to best use company assets to meet future commitments. Whether an organization has already developed internal liquidity management tools or not, our experts can provide valuable insight on how to create them or improve existing ones.

Operational Restructuring

Whether your business is facing challenges or seeking improvement, there is often a need to change its daily operational strategies to get the organization headed in the right direction. The professionals at SOGID™ Management Consultants are skilled at quickly assessing an organization at both the macro and micro levels in order to provide recommendations for improvement. Starting with information gathering, we will work with your management team to identify where company operations can be optimized in the areas of lowering expenses, raising revenues, and appropriate staff models. Our goal is to never upend your company’s culture, but rather develop ways to integrate it into a more productive and efficient business environment.

Strategic Restructuring

The corporate restructuring process is often a good time to realign a company’s marketing activities, product offerings, and target market/audience focus. Evaluating an organization’s marketing strategy will have a direct impact on the success of a corporate restructuring.

Chief Restructuring Officer

A company does not need to be insolvent to benefit from the services of a Chief Restructuring Officer (CRO). An experienced CRO can provide proven management strategies when an organization needs additional direction. Because a CRO is granted full control of the daily operations of a company, they can have a direct and significant influence on restructuring the business toward solvency and profitability. The team at SOGID™ Management Consultants has the knowledge and experience to effectively fill the role of CRO in your organization. In addition to other duties, our goals would include the stabilization of fundamental aspects of your company, as well as the reestablishment of productive relationships with all external stakeholders.
