Restructuring solutions for businesses

Absolute Partners works with viable businesses in distress, businesses that are on a downward trend or has people/cultural issues. We play a key role, working side by side management, helping restructure and improve their operational and financial performance. This is done by a focus on rightsizing the business to create a runway but also involves exploiting growth opportunities over time to ensure the turnaround is sustainable. 

We come in with a clear mind and situational experience to help respond to disruptive events – whether internal or externally created. Things can not stay the same.

Our senior executives have deep corporate restructuring and turnaround management experience across a number of industries and are skillful in responding to complex business situations in a timely, creative, practical manner.   We add to this a strong strategic mind so that we can find solutions to situations that are less obvious. We pride ourselves on results. 

In our restructuring engagements we get in quickly, help diagnose the opportunities, issues and objectives and then work quickly to develop and execute profitable outcomes taking into account all stakeholders. 

Typically every turnaround needs to solve the following:

  • Capital and structural solution
  • New strategy/business model
  • Right structure & team (re-energised)
  • Streamline and reduce costs
  • Strong financial discipline and reporting
  • New growth areas and revenue
  • Communication and stakeholder management
