To help make your company more robust, it may be worth considering divesting struggling and non-core assets and taking advantage of lower prices to make strategic acquisitions. You might also be considering expanding into other markets, domestically or internationally.


Given the recent difficult business conditions, a change of approach may be needed as previously good clients may have become bad debts, credit not being readily available and some suppliers no longer able to supply.


Equally, for some businesses, the tougher business conditions have resulted in underperformance from an operational or financial perspective.


Now is the time to address such issues to position your business for any upturn.


How we can help
KPMG’s Transaction & Restructuring professionals can help to address issues and take advantage of opportunities as they arise.


From initial assessment of the strategic value of an acquisition through financial due diligence and valuation of the proposed target, and assisting your negotiations with the seller, we can help you achieve the value you seek from your deal. We work with organisations to execute transactions smoothly and help minimise the risks of subsequent disputation.


Having appropriate capital strategies and funding structures in place and ensuring they remain relevant as conditions change is crucial. Our Debt Advisory professionals can assist with strategic debt structuring advice, assessment of alternative funding options and markets as well as assist with the financing process including debt sizing, market selection, negotiation and documentation.


For a business that is underperforming, our restructuring professionals can work with management, stakeholders and lenders to help make real improvements to cash flow, profit & loss and the corporate balance sheet.


We take a hands-on approach to help you stabilise your business and identify new opportunities to make sustainable changes to your strategy, operations and finances.
