Commercial reviews

Shareholders, financial institutions and other key stakeholders often require an impartial commercial or independent business review to be carried out. At RSM we have carried out numerous reviews across a variety of industry sectors to assist stakeholders in their decision-making, tailoring our approach to meet the specific requirements of each case. Our financial reviews focus on identifying key risk areas and action points, and addressing any specific issues/concerns that may be identified.

We bring commercial and industry knowledge, analytical skills and technical knowledge to all our engagements.

A business review may be required in circumstances where a viable business is under performing or in distress. It may also be required to establish the viability for potential funding or investment in a business. Our team draws on the experience of its integrated business advisory, corporate finance, and insolvency teams to explore all options and to present a clear and concise business review for presentation to the key stakeholders.

We act for all stakeholders in a business including:

  • directors and shareholders;
  • creditors and bankers;
  • government departments and agencies; and
  • potential investors.

Our reports are concise and focus on key objectives and recommendations for the business. The reports include:

  • an overall assessment of the business including short and medium term cashflow implications;
  • an assessment of the key business drivers and underlying assumptions;
  • an assessment of the strength and capability of management; and
  • overall recommendations and steps required for successful implementation. (including advice in respect of strategic options, operational options, and/or exit strategies, where required).

Where a more coordinated restructuring is required, we have the ability to identify the solution for “right sizing” the business, preserving value and formally reviewing strategies for the stakeholders. Our team will examine the current situation and provide practical and workable solutions.

Where circumstances necessitate urgent decisions, our team are available at short notice to undertake a “high level look see” and to report on appropriate action.

Our multi-disciplinary team draws on the experience of our integrated corporate finance, corporate recovery, restructuring and tax team to provide honest, clear and concise advice to our clients.
