Restructuring

Financial Restructuring

Faced with a crisis, companies need to source additional finance and strengthen equity. RITTERWALD is well versed in supporting all financial restructuring measures involving equity and debt.

As our clients, we can help you access rescue capital, reorganize your bank borrowings, implement internal and external restructuring measures and change your equity base.

In our work, the importance of finding the best solutions for whatever financing situations our clients face is paramount. This can range from traditional refinancing with existing or new financing partners to debt reduction and debt-to-equity swaps. We also keep an eye on shareholders’ equity by helping our clients attract new investors to support their financial restructuring. In the process of combining the various restructuring elements, we draw on our experience with subsidies and leasing schemes and also integrate these possibilities into our clients’ strategies going forward.

Project Examples

Financial restructuring also succeeds with the help of new investors. We know the market and prepare your company presentations accordingly.

Documentation of financing plans

Achieving your defined financing goals depends upon documenting your financing requirements in the right way for each different group of addressees. We’ll optimally prepare your financing discussions by presenting comprehensive documentation in the required form. We know investors’ specific requirements and we’ll assist in the preparation of fact books, information memoranda and business plans – and in crisis situations we’ll prepare going concern forecasts or restructuring opinions.

We know the investors

We speak the language of banks and investors in the domestic and international markets. Our experience in targeting investors can also be turned to the benefit of our clients undergoing restructuring. We’ll accompany you all the way from making the initial contact to the negotiation phase to closing the deal, and we’ll ease the burden on your management capacities with our support through every stage of the process.
