Turnaround and Restructuring Services

Bringing strategic stability to distressed organizations

Strategic Advisory With Demonstrated Execution and Recovery

At some point in its lifecycle, every business will experience distress. Abrupt changes in market conditions or demand, shifts in the availability of financing, loss of major clients, disruptive technological change, and other factors can all have rapid effects on an organization’s prospects. Declining profitability, tight liquidity, credit unavailability, debts in excess of asset book value, and other factors are clear signs of a company in need of assistance — and these difficulties can strain the decision-making capabilities of even the strongest leaders. 

BDO Consulting Group, LLC’s Turnaround and Restructuring Services professionals have deep experience working with underperforming companies and distressed organizations. We work rapidly to assess the situation and deliver meaningful clarity, standing up operational and financial strategies to help stabilize your condition and working with you to develop ongoing plans to create value and improve performance.

We work with you to execute business restructuring and recovery plans, concentrating on strategic objectives and injecting expertise and human capital as needed, including interim and turnaround leadership to shore up your capabilities.
