Debt Restructuring: Advanced Strategies for Companies (Part 2)

After the positive reception of our introductory article on financial restructuring, we dove deeper into the topic. In this installment, we will deeply explore advanced strategies that go beyond superficial analysis. We will delve into the complex world of debt restructuring, offering valuable insights backed by
real experiences of expert consultants.

The financial concept

The essence of the corporate financial world lies in its financing structure, which flows through two crucial channels: external and internal. External financing, obtained through banks and suppliers, and internal financing, generated from the resources provided by partners, constitute the fundamental pillars.

Financial restructuring and its applications

Financial restructuring has three possible applications or solutions to avoid insolvency, in which the consultant intervenes.

1. Strategic Consulting

Strategic consulting is the heart of any successful financial restructuring. It's not just about numbers; It's about understanding the essence of a company and transforming its finances significantly. Experienced consultants dive deep into the existing financial structure. Through concrete examples, from cash flow analysis to loan renegotiation, we will examine specific tactics that have led companies to success.

The consultant not only analyzes, but also draws up precise renegotiation strategies, changes in the financial structure... these strategies, outlined with surgical precision, have become a lifeline for companies on the verge of collapse, marking the path to financial solidity. .

2. Pre-Bankruptcy Restructuring

Pre-bankruptcy (and in turn pre-judicial) restructuring is a complex legal territory that deserves specialized attention. It is a figure established by the Bankruptcy Law (art 583 et seq.) in which the court is informed that negotiations are going to begin with creditors for a restructuring.

This strategic approach allows companies to initiate direct negotiations with creditors, facilitating debt relief (debt reduction) and waiting agreements (postponement of payments) that are established in accordance with the provisions of the bankruptcy law. These agreements not only provide immediate financial relief, but also suspend pending foreclosures by creditors, giving the company a crucial pause to reorganize. In this scenario, restructuring experts intervene, appointed by the debtor, the creditors or even the court, as established by legal regulations.

With this model serving as a legal and financial lifeline for companies in crisis, they can effectively communicate with their creditors, present solid restructuring plans and ultimately avoid insolvency.

3. Bankruptcy: Strategies for Last Resort

When the two figures mentioned above have not been successful and the options have been exhausted, bankruptcy proceedings come into play. This process, led by specialized professionals, has the primary objective of reaching an agreement with creditors, which may involve write-offs and waiting to restructure the outstanding debt. If, unfortunately, financial reorganization is not possible, bankruptcy proceedings may lead to the liquidation of the company. During this procedure, professionals not only act as legal representatives filing the bankruptcy, but also as bankruptcy administrators, appointed by the court, with the responsibility of managing the liquidation in an orderly and fair manner. This process, although complex, offers a structured path for companies in crisis, offering options ranging from restructuring to liquidation, with the ultimate goal of preserving the interests of all parties involved.
