The current economic climate is forcing companies to increasingly focus on efficiency measures to optimize financial performance, and both conserve and raise cash. Frequently these measures involve restructuring, which includes appropriate analysis, followed by operations realignment, plant closings, mothballing, or divestiture of assets and business units.
Restructuring of plant operations creates new and evolving issues for companies to address beyond normal management of plant operations. Sub-optimal planning and execution can burn through time and cash, expose the company to increased risk and result in assets that continue to drag on cash flow and be a balance sheet liability. Although plant closing rationalization presents such challenges, it also presents opportunities, particularly with environmental issues. Optimizing the decision making process can result in significant asset enhancement, budget optimization and cash generation. Addressing these issues successfully is critical in maximizing resultant value, reducing costs and delivering on planned restructuring goals.
