Wind Down and Closure

Advice to organisations on strategies when a subsidiary, division, product, site or business in its entirety is to be wound down and closed.

With careful planning many of the common pitfalls can be avoided, costs reduced and residual value optimised; however, to achieve this there is no substitute for experience.

What we do

We advise organisations on strategies when a subsidiary, division, product, site or business in its entirety is to be wound down and closed.

We work co-operatively with management and other stakeholders to evaluate the closure of underperforming companies or business divisions.

We can review the closure options, devise a withdrawal strategy and plan and manage the implementation.

Our services provide an efficient strategy that does not jeopardise reputation or stakeholder relationships, and at the same time allows management to focus on their remaining core businesses.
