Matt is a restructuring professional who assists companies and their directors to spot the causes of trading issues and then works with the client in order to effectively plan and implement strategies to stop an issue becoming a crisis.
Whilst Matt works with all sizes of business, he is most at home with clients in the SME space.
Recent success stories include:
- assisting a client raise additional funding to meet a forecast cash requirement;
- helping a client obtain repayment plans with its creditors to ensure it had sufficient time to successfully implement its turnaround plan; and
- a successful sale of a company’s business and assets, preserving all employees’ and directors’ jobs and ensuring the company’s clients were not left without supply.
The key to any successful restructuring is to understand the client’s business and operations and culture and then work with the directors to find a solution that will make a long lasting difference.
Matt works closely with his fellow partners at RSM to deliver solutions that are practical and can be implemented. This may include raising of additional funds (secured or unsecured), obtaining equity investment, operational turnaround or systems improvement amongst many others.
He has good relationships with key secured lenders and asset based lenders. These relationships are built over many years providing practical solutions to their clients. In particular he provides regular communication so that all stakeholders are able to work together on a basis of trust to deliver the best results possible.
Whilst Matt works in all sectors of the economy, he has particular specialisms with asset based lending, recruitment, manufacturing, importers and distributers and care homes.
