DCS advisors provide comprehensive workout & restructuring (W&R) services to public and private sector clients within our key sectoral coverage areas, including infrastructure, energy & utilities, industrials, oil & gas, real estatehospitality & tourism and distressed asset sectors.  Complimenting our expertise in workout & restructuring transactions, our expertise in M&A and privatizations advisory services and capital fundraising advisory services are often relevant in serving our W&R clients.

Specifically, the key services that we offer in W&R are the following:

  • Creditor negotiations.  DCS W&R affiliates are experts in negotiating with our client's existing lenders on their behalf, resulting in favorable lender concessions, including restructuring of existing debt (extension of term, deferrals of principal and interest, reduction of interest rates, relaxation of other lender terms and conditions, etc.)

  • Debt refinancing & restructuring. As an element of our capital fundraising services, DCS affiliates also provide expertise in raising debt and/or equity capital on behalf of distressed companies and assets for the purpose of refinancing and restructuring existing stressed or non-performing debt.  In some cases, we can also raise new money equity capital from private equity and mezzanine investors.

Under any W&R services mandate, DCS will draw from our vast global network of veteran industry expert advisor affiliates and our relationship consultants in order to assemble the most appropriate team to match the specific needs of the transaction at hand.  This will always include leadership of DCS affiliate experts who possess decades of global transactional experience related to the specific sector and transaction type.  In any valuation modeling services mandate, our preferred role is always to serve as the lead project/program manager.  Within this role we are also able to assist in the selection and procurement (or subcontracting) and management of other advisors, including local and international legal, technical, commercial and other specialized advisors or other specialized advisors, as the specific transaction may require.  To the extent that other third-party advisors are required, there are many value added advantages of allowing DCS to assist in the procurement of these advisors.  First, DCS expert affiliates themselves possess many of required legal, technical, commercial and managerial skill sets and we are best positioned to determine which additional outside third-party skill sets are required and which firms or individuals should be hired in these roles.  Secondly, workout and restructuring services are a complex undertaking, requiring the management and coordination of many simultaneous workstreams.  DCS advisors are experts in project and program management services and are ideally suited to manage and coordinate a multi-dimensional advisory team most efficiently and effectively.

Complementing our W&R services, DCS advisors offer the following complementary advisory services that may be applicable, dependent on the specific needs of our client.
