Our CROs have experience of operational leadership of companies as well as management of successful corporate restructuring and reorganization projects. They support companies’ management teams with their comprehensive know-how and actively assist with the preparation phase as well as overall implementation of the restructuring process.
Following an assessment of the causes of the crisis and after implementing the initial measures which are required in the short term, together with the company’s managers the CRO will develop an action plan for the rapid and successful realization of the overall project.
Restructuring & strategic realignment
In the coming years, suppliers will have to respond to extensive structural changes and consolidate accordingly. The OEM are setting the pace.
Planning and implementation of a profit improvement program
For internationally operating companies, optimizing the global footprint along the value chain is crucial, especially with the current weak development in Europe.
For the purpose of an objective assessment of a company’s business situation and financial position, an IBR enables a rapid and independent analysis of its business model as well as its structure and situation. It provides the necessary transparency and a solid basis for prudent decision-making. We will prepare an in-depth IBR for you – rapidly and discreetly.
Effective cost reduction programs help to avoid a critical situation long before earnings and liquidity problems emerge. Precise knowledge of your business model as well as a detailed overview of your cost structure and processes are prerequisites in order to realize existing potential. On this basis, we will identify appropriate measures, define efficient work packages and assist you during their operational implementation, in order to achieve solid revenue growth.
Haselhorst Associates will assist you with the preparation of a reorganization report, assess your company’s business potential and develop an effective action plan. Our reorganization reports are fully compliant with the requirements of the Institute of Public Auditors in Germany’s audit standard S6, provide transparency and present ways out of a crisis. We will define a path in order to return your company to operational and financial stability. We will naturally also assist with the operational implementation phase.
Companies frequently lack the necessary capacities and experience in order to manage a comprehensive restructuring project on their own. For this reason, we are ready to act as a chief restructuring officer (CRO) or interim manager where necessary. Once we have assessed the causes of the crisis and reached agreement on the appropriate measures, we will install a project management office which will handle the execution of the restructuring process as well as related management accounting. We will thus ensure a successful turnaround.
Transactions require a great deal of attention and well-founded strategies based on reliable figures – from the operational due diligence via the leverage of potential synergies and the preparation of “day one” to the systematic post-merger integration phase. We will safeguard the success of your transaction by evaluating the plausibility of your business plan as well as appropriately realigning all of the relevant structures and processes. Our team will be pleased to support you throughout the implementation phase.
As an interim manager or chief restructuring officer, we work with our clients to develop strategically focused concepts to ensure an effective turnaround in case of reorganization and restructuring projects. Our consultant – where necessary, including his or her team – will assume internal responsibility for the overall project management strategy, agree the necessary measures with the company’s management and relevant stakeholders and draw up the strategy paper.
