Asset Preservation & Reorganization Support Services
Re-organizing the structure of a business presents challenges in the best of circumstances. As a business grows, it will face changes in its market sector. Changes in direction of the business may be beyond the comfort zone of the principals, yet may be necessary in order to maintain market share. For some businesses, attempts at growth may have weakened the business’ foundation, and refocusing on core skills and principles may be needed.
Furthermore, re-organization can be especially challenging when the circumstances are unfortunate, due to divorce, a death of a partner, the withdrawal of a principal, a financial crisis, or the criminal conduct of an employee. These situations present challenges beyond those of a normal reorganization, and can be detrimental to the business’ continuing smooth operations, and can even threaten the business’ survival. The business’ management team may be the least qualified to deal with this situation precisely because of the close involvement with the business that normally makes them so effective.
Whether the re-organization is planned and routine, or the result of one of life’s more challenging circumstances, Sterner Consulting provides Asset Preservation and reorganization consulting, logistics, and staffing support to ensure your business effectively weathers the transition. We help companies avoid the perils of external intervention and assist secured lenders and investors in monetizing their security interest in a business or project.
Sterner Consulting works with your business to ensure that financial institutions, appointed trustees, and to companies communicate and work effectively in the reorganization process. We recognize and help balance the sometimes conflicting priorities of completing the re-organization and while continuing operations and restructuring agreements to preserve the assets and value of a business or project.
Sterner consulting will utilize the skills and resources your business needs to change management strategies in an efficient manner, and to maximize the preservation of capital assets in difficult transitions. Services we provide include:
