Macroeconomic Factors Shaping Restructuring Market

Corporate restructuring consists of many business activities where a company requires outside or professional commentary. Some of the major reasons for corporate restructuring are financial distress, business expansion, hierarchy of management changes, and legal compliance.

Depending on the reason for restructuring, we can decide whether the particular business restructuring is positive or negative from a business point of view. For example, if the business restructuring is happening due to financial distress, it is a negative sign for the business or an investor. However, if the restructuring is happening due to legal compliance or business expansion, it is considered to be a normal course of action.

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, many companies across the world faced cash flow issues and were not able to recover fully from the same, ultimately leading to acquisition or bankruptcy. Since there was nothing wrong with the company’s business model, many got acquired by large enterprises with great discounts on their valuation.

  • Short Term (2023-2026): During COVID, many companies were able to get low interest rate loans to fund their business as both governments and banks were pushing for recovery of the economy. However, things did not go as planned and businesses were not able to recover from the shock of COVID-19, and the impact of the same was witnessed in restructuring deals.
  • Medium Term (2026-2029): Amid tight government spending and moderately high interest rates from banks, it will be easy for businesses to carry out operational activities without being profitable for a longer period.
  • Long Term (2029-2033): Rising complex business environment and stringent regulatory rules will shape the future of the restructuring advisory market. Rise in the entry of many startups across all domains will push for multiple mergers and acquisitions, resulting in more business for restructuring advisors.

The global corporate restructuring advisory market expanded at a CAGR of 5.6% during the historical period 2018-2023. The market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.3% over the next 10 years.

How Will Both Formal & Informal Restructuring Keep Service Providers Busy?

“Unfavorable Market Conditions”

The beauty of the restructuring industry is that the demand for its services is always there in the market. Any kind of business activity, whether business expansion, a new line of credit, or management changes, needs the services of restructuring advisors.

The overall business environment is currently in turmoil. Reduced government sanction/support, higher rates of interest from lenders, and drought in funding from the private equity space are forcing many companies to either get acquired by a larger company or merge with companies of the same size.

“Increasing M&A Activities”

During 2019-2020, B2B and D2C companies came into the market across different industries with deep funding from private equity and institutional investors. For some time, these companies were able to make a dent in the market share of established players. However, things did not work out as planned, and over a period, they ran out of money and most of these companies were nowhere near to being profitable.

The impact of COVID can be still seen in the funding space, resulting in many notable mergers and acquisitions and a few bankruptcies also. This has enabled an increase in the demand for corporate restructuring services.

One of the biggest notable examples is the WeWork saga, where in 2019, it was valued at US$ 47 billion and was planned for an IPO with the same valuation. Later concerns were raised by some investors/bankers, and as a result, the valuation dropped to a mere US$ 9 billion.

Indian Corporate Restructuring Market Will Witness Fastest Growth

The overall Indian economic environment has been growing steadily despite a global slowdown. In comparison to other major economies of the world, Indian businesses are reporting good topline numbers. Government undertaking companies have been going through a turnaround over the last few years as the current regime is trying to revive struggling PSUs.

Business restructuring by spinning off non-performing business units and management changes are a few of the steps being taken by the government to revive these companies. Such steps have kept turnaround advisory companies busy.

Lack of funding in private investment places has forced many private companies to restructure their current capital structure and raise money via the debt route. The Indian business restructuring advisory market is poised to expand at a CAGR of 7.1% and be one of the fastest-growing markets for turnaround service providers.

Finance is one of the most important elements of any business across all industries. In the wake of the COVID-19 crisis, many companies around the globe faced financial problems and found it difficult to run their business.

Many such companies reached out to business turnaround advisors for help. Financial restructuring consists of contingency planning, distressed M&A planning, and tax & legal restructuring, among others. We saw that M&A activity was at an all-time high in many industry verticals such as retail, consumer goods, and technology.

Out of the total demand for corporate restructuring, financial restructuring accounts for more than 30% market share, and given the complex business condition along with intense competition, it is expected that this segment will swell even more in the future.

Consumer Markets Will Demand Most of These Services

Retail and consumer goods/service companies were the most affected by the COVID-19 crisis, and its impact is still very much visible as many D2C brands have wound up their businesses due to lack of funding or less demand for their product/services.

Even established firms such as Neiman Marcus and JCPenney were not able to sustain themselves and ultimately filed for bankruptcy. Contrary to what it seems, making it a successful business is not that easy in the retail industry. Consumer and retail businesses account for almost 27% of total turnaround advisory services demand. Few of the most common services demanded by retail businesses are bankruptcy support, valuation & modelling, rescue capital advisory, and distressed M&A, among others.
