“Power for implementation”

Lenders

Use of MSP managers to avoid acute crises:

In cooperation with entrepreneurs and managers, MSP can help to prevent acute crises with, for example,

  • the definition and implementation of programmes of measures to increase potential in all functional areas
  • Optimisation of liquidity management
  • Creation of transparency in the area of finance and accounting

Crisis support:

  • In a team with restructuring consultants: MSP supports financially focused restructuring consultants with economic expertise in the preparation of restructuring reports, thereby providing an important contribution to the quality of the reports
  • Operational restructuring: MSP managers take on responsibility in the restructuring process as the CRO, the board or even in the management of essential sub-projects of the restructuring

Second opinion:

MSP can rapidly provide a qualified second opinion on available continuation reports and business plans using its relevant industry and technical expertise. Our contribution focuses on the performance-related part of a plan and its transition to financial planning.


“Risk management & controlling”

Insolvency administrators

From the perspective of creditors, insolvency processes should be executed to optimise value. MSP has had the opportunity to work on the following issues thus far:

  • Interim management of the operative business on site, support of the insolvency administration in the sale of assets
  • Preparation of operational restructuring concepts, support in the preparation of insolvency plans and assistance in M&A processes from the insolvency
  • Spot-on support for special issues, also and especially in the functional areas of production and technology as well as sales and marketing

The advantages of working with MSP managers:

  • We know insolvency processes from hands-on experience
  • MSP partners and experts regularly attend further training courses on the subject of insolvency/restructuring
  • We perfectly complement your insolvency expertise with our management, technical and industry expertise
  • We are worth it: the use of our services is more than justified by the results we achieve
  • In settlement cases our work has a positive effect on the insolvency assets to be achieved
  • We are not consultants, but rather solve operational tasks with relevant technical and industry expertise
