Reshaping Results

Providing trusted leadership in urgent, critical and complex situations to rapidly solve business challenges, sustainably improve results and help you reshape for a better future.

We work closely with clients motivated to transform financial and/or operational performance through value creation, value preservation or value recovery; and where a sustainable outcome is desired.

All sectors are facing disruption. Certain trigger events cause disruption to become business critical issues. Companies must build resilience to prepare for, and respond to, these trigger events before options evaporate and the risk of losing control increases.

Reshaping Results is SGV/EY’s set of solutions to help stakeholders facing these trigger events. It is a broad experienced capability that we bring to clients, and which is underpinned by a variety of competencies working in collaboration on delivery.

We provide strategy and execution support to clients seeking to sell, merge or divest their business or selected assets as part of our sell-side advisory services — from exit readiness, investor search, due diligence coordination to negotiations and closure.

On the buy-side, we provide strategy and execution support to clients seeking to increase their business services, scale of operations, access to new markets, diversifying their product range, and investing excess cash — from target search, due diligence, bid preparation and submission, negotiation and closure.
