Financial Restructuring & Turnarounds 

KGI works with our clients to develop and implement plans to restructure debts and equity, return a company to profitability and long-term sustainability, and complete sales or new capital transactions.  


Our experienced senior team is skilled at achieving exceptional results with either consensual out-of-court agreements with creditors and shareholders or working effectively within a bankruptcy proceeding. 


We are designated “experts” in complex financial restructuring, bankruptcy, and litigation situations.


Our multifaceted approach to these restructuring processes draws on our deep experience in negotiation and in working on many key activities in parallel.


Key areas often include:

  1. Assessment and vetting of complex business and capital situations to identify and recommend achievable restructuring alternatives.

  2. Alignment of restructuring scenarios with the company’s financial projections to demonstrate plan feasibility.

  3. Forecasting and management of cash flow and profitability to maintain company viability and maximize company value during the restructuring process.
