Restructuring is the corporate management term for the act of reorganizing the legal, ownership, operational,
or other structures of a company for the purpose of making it more profitable, or better organized for its
present needs. Other reasons for restructuring include a change of ownership or ownership structure,
demerger, or a response to a crisis or major change in the business such as bankruptcy, repositioning, or
buyout. Restructuring may also be described as corporate restructuring, debt restructuring and financial
Executives involved in restructuring often hire financial and legal advisors to assist in the transaction details
and negotiation. It may also be done by a new CEO hired specifically to make the difficult and controversial
decisions required to save or reposition the company. It generally involves financing debt, selling portions of
the company to investors, and reorganizing or reducing operations.
The basic nature of restructuring is a zero-sum game. Strategic restructuring reduces financial losses,
simultaneously reducing tensions between debt and equity holders to facilitate a prompt resolution of a
distressed situation.
Corporate debt restructuring is the reorganization of companies’ outstanding liabilities. It is generally a
mechanism used by companies which are facing difficulties in repaying their debts. In the process of
restructuring, the credit obligations are spread out over longer duration with smaller payments. This allows
company’s ability to meet debt obligations. Also, as part of process, some creditors may agree to exchange
debt for some portion of equity. It is based on the principle that restructuring facilities available to companies
in a timely and transparent matter goes a long way in ensuring their viability which is sometimes threatened
by internal and external factors. This process tries to resolve the difficulties faced by the corporate sector and
enables them to become viable again
