Debt Restructuring

SOS.BIZ, in partnership with its Practitioners' Business Network, offer top notch competencies and specific professional experience to secure a definitive solution pattern for financially distressed firms. We, in particular, apply a full Feasibility Analysis and Asseveration of Debt Restructuring Plans as per recently Italian renewed restructuring procedures on Private Transactions and Bankruptcy Provision, i.e. "Law n.134/2012".

Specific applications on following transactions: ex. art.67 (out of the Court), ex. art.182 bis and art.161 (in the Court).


SOS.BIZ assess your industrial plan and financial restructuring to secure full adherence with your creditor expectations as well as to make sure your future performance is a feasible proposition.

SOS.BIZ offer you the capability to translate into operational terms all performance KPI's (including the financial covenants) of your industrial plan through a very articulated, yet simple to absorb, deployment and monitoring process architecture.

3.a Break-down plan strategy and KPI’s metrics into operational terms:

  • Economics (Revenues, Costs, EBITDA, EBIT, Net Profit A/T)
  • Financials (Net Working Capital: DSO, DPO, disbursements, inventory, etc.)

3.b Benchmark all critical KPI’s objectives towards three targets:

  • Base Plan Target (by Restructuring Plan)
  • Minimum Distressed Target (by stress/sensitivity analysis)
  • Default Target (by stress/sensitivity analysis)

3.c KPI Scorecard is structural element of Master Plan:

  • Allocate Contingency Plans into Economics (reserves) based on Stress/Sensitivity Analysis
  • Assign all (100%) actions listed in the Restructuring Master Plan to “named” responsibility and accountability (including contingencies)
  • Assign frequency of measuring to each selected KPI (weekly, monthly, quarterly) within the Gap Analysis process
  • Institutionalize the Gap Analysis Schedule for a strict and rigorous business review and action plan re-assessment (all based on DELTA’s)
