We have successfully restructured and transformed some of the largest companies and financial institutions. Below are some examples and success we achieved:

Financial services

- Largest Greek Bank

Success achieved:

The restructuring of a leading international bank. We addressed around 80% of its liabilities, lead the disposal of non core assets, and identified and managed acquisitions. This allowed our client to double in size in a 24 month period, and repositioned them as market leader, successfully managing to raise an additional 10% of capital.



- Largest Global Independent Refinery Operator
- GATE Alternative Energy

Success achieved:

A large petrochemical conglomerate with a turnover in excess of 20bn USD (500m USD EBITDA). The engagement required a radical change of market focus, the break up of the group, alongside the repositioning of various parts and the wind down of their non-core entities. The total value created was 20% of initial base value (100% to 120% after restructuring).



- Pharma distribution
- Pharma track & production

Success achieved:

We lead the acquisition and turnaround of a large pharma business.
This included the split in monolines and disposal od monolines at a 50% profit of purchase costs.
