Regain your former strength


A crisis does not come knocking on your door. It creeps up on you and only gets noticed when it is almost too late. Often individual signs of a crisis are recognized, but their significance for the overall situation is underestimated. When the crisis is at hand, strategic, operative and financial action is required. Our turnaround program provides emergency assistance and aims at restoring the company’s ability to perform for the long term.

We are a bank- and investor-independent consulting firm and work together with seasoned experts to provide you with a neutral and outside perspective on chances and risks. Based on a trusting relationship, we develop the right approach together. Depending on the severity of the situation, this can entail soft measures or even hard cuts. Our expansive expertise from numerous consulting projects means that we are close to market developments and can quickly find integrated strategies to get the ship back on course.

  • Fast, but detailed analysis of the status quo, which can also be used as a quick check for investors/shareholders or financing banks
