Asset valuations and advice for restructuring and insolvency

Understand and communicate the values of distressed assets

Restructuring and insolvency is a complex arena governed by statute and regulation providing guidance for practitioners and protecting creditors.

Today there is a growing support for finding solutions through multi-stakeholder engagement and consensual agreement to prevent both large and small businesses failing.

For restructuring professionals and management, operating in a challenging commercial environment, who need to restructure a business and its assets, Hickman Shearer understand and can communicate the values of distressed assets.

Why asset valuations for restructuring and insolvency matter

Asset valuations for restructuring and insolvency enable restructuring professionals and management to:

  • Obtain valuations of all owned and leased capital assets
  • Review asset utilisation and performance identifying surplus assets or capacity
  • Assess alternative asset funding models
  • Review inventory holding levels
  • Provide alternative estimated outcome statements considering different restructuring scenarios
  • Market assets for sale

As a result of early action restructuring, professionals and management can:

  • Preserve asset value
  • Gain time for negotiation and improve the outcome
  • Achieve the optimum outcome in a distressed environment

Elsewhere detailed market analysis and accurate asset valuations enable you to:

  • Re-finance and improve working capital
  • Rationalise, restructure or sell the businesses and assets
  • Build a more profitable future generating cash from surplus asset sales
