Informal arrangements

BRI Ferrier can facilitate informal arrangements for financially distressed businesses as an alternative to administration or liquidation.

Informal arrangements might include:

  • negotiation of standstill agreements with financiers
  • repayment agreement or limited moratorium between a distressed business and its creditors
  • stabilisation of business and identification of risk factors
  • assessment of management
  • compliance reviews
  • cash flow and working capital reviews
  • funding and other financial reviews
  • divestment of certain business operations or assets
  • implementing restructuring
  • developing an operational and financial restructure plan.

As informal arrangements usually don’t require third-party involvement, they can be a cost-effective option. They may, however, offer only a short-term solution.

Here is just one example of our experience in facilitating an informal arrangement:
