Corporate restructuring is the process by which a firm renegotiates the contracts, claims, commitments, obligations, and promises – both written and unwritten – that it has entered into with its various constituencies, in order to create and/or preserve significant value. In the Pacific Rim countries that we operate in, restructuring usually entails corporate debt restructuring such as when a business faces a distressed debt situation or a corporate reorganization such as when a business decides to alter its assets or share ownership to a related party prior to being floated or spin-off.

For companies faced with financial challenges, AVC offers expert advice, extensive transactional experience and can quickly develop a focused plan of action to the lenders, investors and owners or steering committee. We would assist in all aspects of the implementation plan, including advising in structuring and effecting the financial aspects of a sale or recapitalization, structuring new securities, negotiating to swap debt for equity, roll-over interest payments, undertake asset disposals, preparing and reviewing cash flow models and preparing projection books for presentation to lenders and investors. Many family owned businesses and publicly listed companies resort to restructuring to avoid default on existing debt or help restore credibility and improve profitability

Some of our clients have also retained us to effect a corporate re-organization such as when a family business or a publicly listed company decides to alter its asset make up or carve out a subsidiary as part of its planned IPO or change of ownership structure. We would assist in formulating a finance plan and strategy and advising in structuring and effecting the reorganization (in concert with other professional advisors) and provide our opinion on ways of improving shareholder value for the new entity.
