How we can assist:
Turnaround and restructuring: EMA Group’s services in this area are designed to provide positive solutions with the executive teams and stakeholders of companies in financial crisis, no matter the circumstances. Ultimately, resolution of these matters can be a drain on time, resources, emotions and morale. Our expertise allows us to work with companies and drive the restructuring process forward, empowering the work force, and enabling management to focus on the day-to-day business.
Chief Restructuring Officer (CRO) services are frequently the result of outside parties losing trust in management for any number of reasons. The secured lender or other parties-in-interest may require that we serve as the CRO. Additionally, the board may feel bringing in a CRO is important in order to fulfill its fiduciary duties. As chief restructuring officer, we can have a much more impactful role than serving as an independent board member. As CRO, we frequently assume an active role over all financial and global operating issues.
Performance improvement: Our performance improvement services focus on helping clients to address the challenges resulting from broken economic models and ineffective processes that are no longer successful or no longer produce wanted results. We improve performance by implementing changes in business workflows and management processes. Conditions that necessitate performance improvement include continual shortfalls in operating results, slowdowns in revenue growth, issuance of new debt or the need to refinance, declines in operating margins, and the restructuring of balance sheet obligations.
Interim management: As a group, we are experienced executives from several industries accustomed to filling a variety of roles during difficult transitions.

Working as senior management—whether as a CRO, CEO, COO or CFO – we take on the appropriate roles to maximize the chances of a successful restructuring.
