Financial Restructuring

Situation

  • Our client, £1.7bn PE backed business services organisation was in the process of restructuring their funding. The existing financial model had insufficient flexibility and was becoming a bottleneck in the process.

Swan Activity

  • Developed the financial model to have greater flexibility and faster turnaround times
  • Full Analytical Review of each of the divisional P&L, Balance Sheet and Cash flows
  • Scenario and sensitivity analysis to demonstrate base case and downside cases for the advisors’ reports
  • Stakeholder management, acting as first point of contact for financial forecast queries from third parties
  • Presented outputs to the senior exec team, showing cash flow and funding implications of each strategy in real time

Outcome

  • The financial model underpinned the successful restructuring of the business and the ongoing support of its lenders thereby avoiding administration.
