Restructuring and Turnaround

With its expertise and management resources, Atreus covers all the phases of a restructuring. Our turnaround professionals deliver outstanding results in strategic, earnings or later in liquidity crises. Individual managers or teams of restructuring experts quickly identify the important weaknesses and launch measures to successfully master the turnaround.

Typical challenges in a crisis

  • Insecurity and falling motivation among managers and employees and a loss of faith among external stakeholders (e.g. customers, suppliers, business partners)
  • A lack of experience and expertise in the field of transformations in the staff
  • Keeping the required staff capacities in the daily business
  • Management deficits and often a corporate culture that is resistant to change
  • Shareholder structure often heterogeneous and even partially incompatible, and contrary motivations and goals of the individual parties and stakeholders

The seriousness of the crisis is often initially underestimated – and consequently the countermeasures are launched later than they should be.

Our expertise in restructurings and turnarounds

  • Managing and implementing the entire restructuring project: from the in-depth analysis to ongoing success control
  • Setting up an effective, central project organization and continually monitoring the successes and measuring the operational realization by the Program Office or a Program Officer
  • Designing scenarios (e.g. restructuring or sale) and operationalizing the restructuring program with clear objectives based on a vision for the future
  • Defining and quickly implementing measures to increase sales while at the same time reducing the working capital and overhead costs
  • Rapid execution of change measures (materials costs, production)
  • Close collaboration with the shareholders, but also with the stakeholders, managers, staff and staff council
  • Mobilizing the staff and management and continuous change management
  • Building up faith among the relevant internal and external stakeholders through professional communication (success stories and quick wins)
  • Coaching the management team
