Phoenix from the Ashes - Turnaround as a real Opportunity
by Dr. Wulf Rendtorff, Ralph Hesse, Sibo Sollors and Robert Dominovic. Economic crises like COVID-19, and disruption generally, act like fire accelerants for ailing companies. Incipient commoditization of the Business model and changing customer needs can quickly push a company to the brink. For banks and shareholders, the immediate question in such cases is whether further financing of the restructuring is reasonable and can be achieved within the required time. In these circumstances, a consultant is not enough: the parties need an experienced partner who can manage the situation and set the direction
for all stakeholders.

Cash is King
by Dr. Wulf Rendtorff, Johannes Tüxen and Robert Dominovic. But just like in chess you need all the pieces engaged in an smart and flexible strategy to protect the king and win the game.
In times of crisis liquidity becomes significantly more important. Volatile markets require more resilience and available financing
can quickly dry up. Optimizing your net working capital provides you with the needed flexibility to release trapped cash shortly, to
avoid covenant breaches and to steer your company in turbulent times.
By Gerhard Nenning and Robert Dominovic. Customer Centricity is Key. We are in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic and many companies are in pure crisis mode: securing supply chains and managing costs and especially cash. This is important but there is evidence that the economic crisis will last longer – until at least Q4 2020. So it is not just about managing the crisis but about quipping sales to win market share and utilize the crisis.
