FINANCIAL AND OPERATIONAL RESTRUCTURING


We provide the Company Restructuring Service in various segments. We internally develop a methodology for this service, which uses an Economic Operational Model on a short, medium and long-term basis.

In our performance improvement and restructuring model, we do a review on several areas of the company, such as Financial, Operational, Marketing, Industrial, Commercial, Administrative, Management and Pricing areas.

We carry out a detailed diagnosis of the company operation, in order to have an overview of what needs to be done at each stage, including interviews with key-employees named by the company.

After this, we are able to set up short, medium and long-term action plan, always having in mind increasing revenue, quality of data to generate management information and also decreasing costs, expenses and errors on this information.

VALUATION


Our Company Valuation model can be used in different sectors of the economy and in companies of different sizes.

Our model follows the report suggested by the Securities and Exchange Commission of Brazil (CVM), using the following metrics: Discounted cash flow analysis, market multiple and equity and operational discontinuity.

For instance, in a company valuation process through discounted cash flow, after evaluating the company we can advise our client on merger and acquisition projects for different segments.

For a process of sale of a company or corporate dissolution, is vital that the valuation of the targeting-company is carried out first, with the proper value of the asset to be traded.
