Ways of turning around a struggling company: Rescue and recovery solutions

There is often light at the end of the seemingly darkest tunnel and at Real Business Rescue, our objective is to keep a company trading if it is viable to do so. Our corporate recovery experts have restructured and arrested the decline of thousands of businesses since the late 1980s and continue to lead the way in assisting company directors in times of financial distress.

There are a number of common rescue services which are summarised below:

BUSINESS FINANCE & FUNDING – We work with over 50 specialist lenders who are particularly forthcoming to companies who may have been refused finance by their bank, or have hit upon hard times and need a cash flow injection to get a viable business back on the road again. We can help you attain that critical funding even if you've had prior rejection.

COMPANY ADMINISTRATIONAdministration is a common process which enables a viable but struggling business to continue trading but undergo key restructuring to make it profitable once again. We have hundreds of administration case studies from small businesses to huge multinational corporations and we can assist in this manner if your company is suffering with operational expenditure but has potential going forward.

There is also the potential option of a pre-pack administration a pre-pack administration which would see the pre-arranged sale of an insolvent company's assets to a third-party (sometimes the company's own directors).

COMPANY VOLUNTARY ARRANGEMENTCommonly known as a CVA, a Company Voluntary Arrangement is a formal insolvency procedure which ring-fences your company and protects it from creditor pressure during times of financial distress. An insolvency practitioner will recommend a CVA if he/she believes that the business has a viable future and a realistic prospect of recovery.

FAST TRACK CVA - A fast-track CVA is a Company Voluntary Arrangement condensed into as little as six weeks, and can quickly provide protection for viable businesses from escalating debts. If your company is in distress but the business itself is still bringing in good revenue, a fast-track CVA could be the most efficient way of turning the situation around by cutting costs, arranging a payment plan with creditors, and ultimately restoring positive cash flow.

RECEIVERSHIPThis is another formal insolvency process which has become less common over the last decade since legislative changes made Administration the more appropriate solution but, for many companies that have debentures dating back before September 2003, receivership will apply if said company reneges on their Floating Charge agreement.
