Our team of specialists helps you prioritize issues and focus on the right path.

In this rapidly changing environment, every company faces challenges. A step in the wrong direction can sometimes have significant effects on corporate performance and company value. KPMG’s integrated team of specialists guides you through difficult times to deliver real results for your stakeholders.



To overcome operational or financial challenges and improve performance, you need to quickly stabilise your cash and liquidity positions, and take a realistic view of current options. 

We provide a seamless approach to stabilising under-performing companies by identifying opportunities for strategic, operational, organisational and financial change, and executing on them to achieve real results.

Financial restructuring

When a company is experiencing financial difficulties, stakeholders often look for additional information or resources to help rebuild their confidence. We help you understand the complex landscape of borrowers, lenders and shareholders, and manage stakeholder communications, so you stay in front of the issues and make the best decisions. We help you assess short-term liquidity requirements and consider actions to quickly preserve value and address potential risks to stability.

Our integrated team of specialists helps you focus on the key questions as you navigate a corporate restructuring to achieve sustainable, operational and financial change.

  • Appraisal and stabilisation: Do I have enough liquidity to keep operating?
  • Options assessment: Do I know what has gone wrong and how to fix it?
  • Intra-stakeholder negotiations: How do I keep everyone engaged in negotiations?
  • Development of options: What sustainable capital structure offers the best prospect of success?
  • Implementation: How can I reconcile all stakeholder positions to implement the new capital structure?
  • Ongoing monitoring: How do I ensure that the business is supported through its recovery?
