    We have delivered significant value from restructuring, turnaround, special situations and insolvency recovery. We operate across all sectors and have completed transactions related to food manufacturing, textile manufacturing, renewable energy, building products, creative industries and retail. In one example of a deal we completed, we acquired the trading assets of a food processing manufacturer from Administrators after the company had run into difficulties with over-trading. After stabilising the operating cashflow and order book we were able to negotiate an agreement with a trade buyer who were also a supplier to the previous business, and ultimately sell the new business as a going concern.
