What is a restructuring concept with a going concern forecast?
If a company runs into acute economic difficulties, drastic restructuring measures must be taken to save the company.
In such situations, commercial banks and other providers of capital usually demand a restructuring concept with a going concern forecast from the management. Such a reorganization expert opinion must meet the legal requirements (relevant BGH rulings) and should comply with the recommendations of the IDW S6 standard.
The restructuring concept should first provide information on which crisis phase the company is in: Liquidity crisis with risk of insolvency or bankruptcy, earnings crisis, sales crisis, strategy/structure crisis, shareholder/stakeholder crisis. From this section, the need for remediation should become comprehensibly apparent.
The concept should also clearly identify the causes of the crisis. Furthermore, the paper should identify concrete conceptual approaches with which the company can be restructured, if necessary, and make a clear statement on its ability to be restructured (ability to continue as a going concern). An action-oriented implementation guide is recommended.
Finally, the reorganization concept should identify essential conditions for successful reorganization. These primarily include contributions from shareholders, commercial banks, suppliers, customers and employees.
What is IDW S6?
The Institute of Public Auditors in Germany (IDW), headquartered in Düsseldorf, promotes the work of public auditors. To support auditors, the IDW publishes so-called pronouncements, which include standards (S).
One of these standards of the IDW is the “S6” for the preparation of restructuring concepts. IDW S6 has become a generally accepted recommendation to which restructuring concepts should be oriented.
