Corporate Transformation & Reorganisation
Often, after a period of expansion or acquisition, organisations may find that they need to review and restructure their international operations ,in order to maintain efficient corporate structures. This is against a backdrop of global market challenges and a constantly changing regulatory landscape. Our team are experienced in advising complex multinational corporations on their business transformation plans, taking into account their legal structure, taxation and financial requirements in various jurisdictions.
A strategic approach to corporate transformation
Our team are experienced in conducting strategic international reviews and understand the market and business dynamics in key industries. We know the right questions to ask and can support management during this period of commercial transformation and change.
It is important from the outset to understand the driving forces behind a corporate reorganisation or consolidation, which could include a number of commercial motivations:
- Improve performance –improve performance through operational efficiency, improved operating profits and reduced overheads.
- Remove Excess capacity – a focus on quality rather than quantity leading to consolidation and/or divestments of part of the business.
- Consolidation – if an organisation has a fragmented or complex corporate structure it may decide to simplify and consolidate its branches, subsidiaries and assets to achieve economies of scale.
