Restructuring & Recovery

When a company is experiencing serious problems and its continuity is at risk, expert help is urgently required, as precarious situations can lead to missed market expectations, reduced operating profit or severe cash-related difficulties. Early detection and swift, decisive actions are essential when restoring the future performance and value of a company. Winds of Change has the experience to be pragmatic and focused on problem-solving in crisis situations. Winds of Change for example has knowledge and experience in the (re-)structuring of commercial real estate loans, as well as the refinancing or restructuring of existing loan facilities for large European banks in tough financial weather.
To give an idea of the applicable processes, an organization can expect an assessment of the status of the company to be completed (using a 'quick scan') to assess the current ‘state-of-the-union’, after which a proposal will be drafted illustrating the strategic and tactical directions that can be taken to relieve a company of its crisis situation. In collaboration with the entrepreneur or the management team the proposed solutions can be implemented in the company.
