An IBR is a financial review based on facts and figures that provides an objective view of a company.
A thorough, customised analysis provides key insights into the viability of the business as well as recommendations on how to restore operational performance and profitability.
Your company may require an IBR, if:
Exceeding bank facility limits is a regular occurrence.
Immediate sources of funding are exhausted.
Suppliers’ credit terms are exceeded.
Failing to produce key accounting and trading information when required.
In the event that an independent assessment of the quality of borrowers’ financial projections and the feasibility of their business plans is required.
There is concern that borrowers may take excessive risks, so that their actual operating cash flows may significantly deviate from projections and be insufficient to repay and service debt in a timely manner.
There are difficulties assessing the risk of default by a borrower operating in an unfamiliar industry.
There is a need to have loan terms and conditions that reliably hedge risks.
Challenging trading / cash flow constraints.
Potential covenant breach.
Additional investment / exit plans being considered.
Level and terms of future credit support have to be negotiated.
When it comes to rescuing a business, early identification, a timely response and the right selection of resources to support and implement strategic options is critical.
