Management SummaryStern Stewart Research

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.
