Restructures & Reorganisations
Whether you want to restructure your business’s share capital or ownership structure as part of a future exit strategy or obtain additional funding, it is important to get legal advice as early as possible. It is often tempting to try to carry out the transaction yourself with your accountant to save on fees, but this can be a false economy as restructuring or reorganising can be complicated and require a sound understanding of the rules surrounding each particular situation and a methodical organised approach. For businesses that rely on an operating licence, understanding the impact of the restructuring or reorganisation on the operating licence is of particular importance. Operating licences are not normally transferable and operators can unwittingly fall foul of the regulatory regime governing these.
Our corporate team regularly advise on:
- Solvent schemes of arrangement.
- Share capital buy-back.
- Intra-group reorganisations.
