Corporate Restructuring and Turnarounds
SKY GLOBAL VENTURES specializes in Corporate Restructuring and Turnarounds.
SKY GLOBAL VENTURES restructuring and turnarounds team helps companies that are facing significant financial and operational challenges, including rapidly deteriorating performance trends, excessive leverage, liquidity concerns, loss of key management or clients, and refinancing risk. We also work with distressed companies grappling with sudden and dramatic challenges from disruptive market forces or other factors.
Our distinctive set of capabilities enables us to help clients quickly stabilize operations, while also implementing a longer-term financial and operational transformation that repairs credibility with key stakeholders and maximizes sustainable value creation.
By crafting an operating model with a time horizon well beyond the current crisis period, we prioritize longer-term sustainable value creation instead of simply glossing over the root causes of a business’s difficulties.
