Strategy

Our systematic and exhaustive approach covers the review of all the relevant areas of the business and the impact over involved stakeholders. This approach is intended to respond the basic questions of any successful restructuring process:

Why?

First step is to have a candid assessment of the reasons why the corporate is in distressed. Is there a one-off temporal reason or are there fundamental issues in the business that must be addressed? This will determine the right strategy.

How?

Once the assessment is completed, we must identify the potential levers of the business and the potential restructuring alternatives. The priority is to stabilize the business and to preserve the value for the stakeholders. Time and determination are of essence to achieve this target.

Who is involved?

A restructuring process is not executed in isolation by the corporation and its shareholders, on the contrary it requires to involve and align the interest of multiple stakeholders (financial institutions, suppliers, employees, customers, administration, etc.) that are key to successfully implement the restructuring plan. The plan must be realistic, feasible and balanced to convince all the parties involved and aligned their interests.

On an immediate basis, we will focus on the cash preservation and cash levers to have enough time to prepare a proper analysis and diagnosis. The outcome of this first phase will be a compelling refinancing strategy covering the main operating and financial aspects of the business.

 

In the short term, ARGOSS accompanies lender and management teams during the negotiation phase, advising the best way to implement the selected strategy and accompanying its customers, either lenders or borrowers, during this process.

 

On the medium-term the key is to assure the refinancing plan is realistic and viable, activating the cash levers and implementing identified savings of the business to assure the operating cash flow is enough to support the business’ needs and the sustainability of the debt associated to the business.
