MorganFranklin helps companies faced with underperformance and financial distress to turnaround operations, improve performance, and institutionalize change for long-term profitability.
Our approach begins with identifying the root cause of underperformance and financial distress. Next, we develop a turnaround plan and partner with management, investors and creditors to transform the company’s operating model to sustain future profitability. We do this by:
- Assessing the root cause of distress and securing liquidity to effectuate a turnaround
- Developing a strategic “Go-Forward” plan for renewal that reassures all parties-in-interest that proactive steps will be taken to preserve enterprise value
- Implementing the “Go-Forward” plan to rehabilitate, restructure, and turnaround operations in partnership with management, creditors and investors
- Facilitating the adoption of changes in corporate culture to support the company’s efforts to get on sound financial footing and sustain future profitability
Through the deployment of our consistent, process-driven approach we stabilize, rehabilitate, restructure, and transform a company’s operations, creating value and maximizing recoveries among stakeholders.
