Restructuring services

Our Restructuring Services Group specialises in providing in-depth business and financial advisory to various stakeholders in the areas of corporate restructuring and business recovery.

We provide tailored advice to our clients to address their corporate restructuring needs, including providing mandated appointments such as Scheme / Special Administrators, Judicial Managers, Liquidators and Receivers. Our areas of expertise include corporate restructuring advisory, lender and creditor solutions, debtor solutions, debt advisory, shareholder dispute resolution, corporate closure management, portfolio lead advisory services and rehabilitation of abandoned projects.

Corporate Restructuring Advisory

We work with underperforming companies to rapidly transform and improve their performance, providing specialist services for businesses that have cash flow, debt, or operational problems that are reducing profitability, detracting from growth in shareholder value and/or causing financial instability. We also work with performing companies who wish to rationalise and streamline their corporate structure to cut complexity, risks, costs and unlock value of their assets.

In situations of restructuring (rehabilitation of company), we act as Judicial Managers and offer clients professional advice and insights on Schemes of Arrangement and Corporate Voluntary Arrangement (CVA) to form a holistic, strategic and effective corporate plan to boost the development and growth of your company. For insolvency matters, we provide services to act as Liquidators and/or Court Appointed Receivers.

Lender and Creditor Solutions

Deloitte’s team of specialists provide clear, practical, commercial advice to banks and lending institutions that add value to their asset structuring and credit management. Our lender solutions cover a wide range of services such as pre-lending review, credit control review, problem loans review and loan restructuring, security and risk review and borrower business viability review.

Our service includes acting as Financial Advisor, Scheme / Special Administrator, Monitoring Accountant, Receivers and Managers, Judicial Managers or Liquidators. Meanwhile, for creditor solutions, we provide advice to secured or unsecured creditors on the areas of debt recovery which may involve acting as Financial Advisor, Scheme / Special Administrator, Monitoring Accountant, Receivers and Managers, Judicial Managers or Liquidators.

Debtor Solutions

We collaborate with underperforming or distressed companies to come up with a pragmatic and productive cash and working capital optimisation strategy to improve cash position for a turnaround. We also advise clients on fast-track M&A (alternative to an insolvency administration) to preserve value through a 'going-concern' sale, as well as on performance improvement.

Debt Advisory

We provide advice to organisations seeking opportunities to refinance, rollover or renegotiate debt facilities face unique challenges. We are a leading adviser to companies seeking to implement operational and financial restructuring plans, with the support of existing or new financiers. We provide guidance and support throughout the entire restructuring process and assist clients in finding potential capital sources.

Shareholder Dispute Resolution

We provide holistic solutions to shareholders who are engaged in shareholder disputes. Elements of our work may include, amongst others, acting as Liquidators or Court Appointed Receivers over the target company to conduct an investigation, work with a solicitor to initiate or defend legal action, recover assets and distribute assets / funds to the shareholders according to their respective entitlements.

Corporate Closure Management

We provide organisations with a cost effective method to manage the exit of underperforming or non-core subsidiaries and divisions. We provide a service that covers a wide aspect of planning and implementation, ranging from termination of contracts to retrenchment matters, after which we then act as Liquidators to wind up the affairs of the business (may include the disposal of company assets, i.e. land and building, etc.).

Portfolio Lead Advisory Services

When it comes to handling performing or non-performing loans (distressed assets), our experienced professionals can provide financial institutions or potential investors with services including sell-side services (advise on disposal strategies, preparation of sale, investor sourcing and project management), buy-side services (due diligence and valuation, negotiation support, advise on deal stuctures, etc.), and post-deal services (portfolio/asset management, strategy advice, manage loan collection process, recovery services, etc.).

Rehabilitation of Abandoned Projects

We have extensive experience in rehabilitating abandoned projects (residential, commercial, mix development, etc.) in Malaysia. As abandoned projects involve many stakeholders (including purchasers) and are generally complicated, we advise our clients by taking a holistic approach to formulate the rehabilitation strategy after taking current issues/factors into consideration and implement the rehabilitation exercise in accordance with the plan to ensure successful revival of the project.
