The first symptoms of these issues are usually the reduction of liquidity, which can be extremely harmful to current business operations. Mackinac Partners’ Turnaround and Restructuring practice is geared towards helping companies quickly assess both the key factors impacting liquidity and their cash flow needs.
Our specialists will rapidly identify the key issues impacting liquidity, including cash flow generation, supplier and cost control, current debt service, overhead and SG&A, revenue and collections, and other key working capital impacts.We will model cash flow and operational working capital to determine how cash is being managed and disseminated. We will also accelerate a near term plan of steps with company management to speed collections, slow disbursements, cut costs, and generate liquidity to ensure that critical customer, supplier and business operational impacts are minimized.
These activities are extremely critical and impactful as the generation of near term liquidity through internal actions is key to obtaining the time to:
- Implement deeper operational and cost control measures
- Evaluate strategic options and capital structure needs
- Negotiate consensual solutions with creditors
- Develop a Restructuring business plan if deeper capital restructuring or additional sources of capital are required
Our specialists can also serve in an interim CRO, CEO, CFO or Controller role to help manage through the crisis and stabilize operations.
