- CVA Rescues
South East based training college
As we have now finalised the CVA for ********************* Limited I just wanted to drop a mail to say thank you to all of you and your extended team for all your support in the last 6 months.
I especially wanted to thank Marie. I am sure she has been pulling her hair out with me at several points during the process but she has remained very supportive and professional throughout.
It has been a very difficult time for me but I have learnt a lot during this process, but in a nice way I hope I will never have to use this service from KSA Group ever again!!!
I would highly recommend KSA Group to anyone in the future that may require this type of service.
Again thank you to the whole team

"Having tried and failed to negotiate a time to pay agreement with HMRC, we got in touch with KSA group in order to discuss our options on restructuring the debt we had. As a Managing Director responsible for the livelihoods of a group of people I'd spent years working with, this period was fraught with stress, worry and uncertainty. Finding the right partner to help us get back on our feet was singularly the most important decision in our Company's history- and undoubtably by selecting KSA one we got right. Their experience and depth of knowledge of the CVA process was apparent from our first formal meeting, and they were able to deftly guide us through the process. Their people were responsive to our queries, empathetic with the situation we were in, and critically able to develop a document for presentation to creditors that undoubtedly made the difference between failure and success.
On a personal note, being able to trust your advisors to 'handle it' allows you to focus on the business- critical to getting out of the situation. I know first hand the emotional turmoil and stress caused by the threat to your business, and if you are reading this and fancy a pint with someone who has been there and come through it, get in touch with KSA Group and I'd happily meet up for a chat."

“I have worked with Keith on a number of CVA cases during the past few years. Keith works with the client's best interest at the fore - he is extremely knowledgable and his expertise and success rate in turn around situations is without question. Keith has the support of a very skilled and professional team who have enjoyed a very high success rate with CVAs. I have enjoyed first hand experience of a company being rescued at the '11th' hour by Keith and his team to offer them the opportunity to survive and ultimately prosper.”

- Restructuring Advice
After a previous restructuring which made it very difficult for the company to proceed in a profitable manner, the board asked KSA Group and others to summarise and review our corporate situation. The plans laid out by KSA Group were clear, professionally presented and in a sympathetic manner for management to understand. It was unfortunate in hindsight that the board decided to work with another insolvency practitioner but it soon became obvious that KSA had a better approach with more reasonable fee structure and a much stronger ethic to succeed.
The result is a company now able to return to profitability and provide the creditors with a reasonable chance of receiving a dividend. Because it is now free of short term cash flow problems management are able to focus on rebuilding the business.
Any insolvency or CVA procedure is fraught with emotion and difficulty but at the end of the day the approach by KSA Group was superb. We did experience many technical difficulties but the calm manner and expertise with which the whole KSA team dealt with them was excellent.I would thoroughly recommend them.

- Liquidation of an IT company
I just wanted to thank you and the team for helping me and indirectly my family through what was a very difficult time, both emotionally and financially. Wayne was fantastic at putting me at ease and throughout the whole insolvency process, it was less stressful than I had first anticipated; many thanks Wayne.
I must say the the professionalism and personal touch of the whole team was exemplary. From the first introductory meeting all the way through the final insolvency process. What was a significant factor in my decision to assign KSA Group was the feedback given by previous clients and the sensitive way in which my case was dealt with because the circumstance leading up to the difficult decision to apply for insolvency were extra ordinary. My deepest thanks to everyone and as promised I will ask the wife to bake some special KSA Group class cupcakes for the team to enjoy which I will deliver personally.
Many many thanks...

- Financial Controller of North West Social Care Company
I'm just writing to thank you for your help and support last week at our meeting. It was a most honest and informative meeting where we discussed a number of both suitable and unsuitable solutions to our current dilemma.
Indeed it was refreshing to receive impartial advice without the fear of the "hard sell" and Hugh's manner and presentation was both open and professional as well as courteous and friendly. In the end the decision we all came to was one which sadly led to little potential for your company's immediate involvement but one which gave us hope for the future as we now recognise the need to dig in deep and face the turbulent times ahead without the requirement to enter the legal framework of liquidation or similar.
Your honest approach has been warmly received and recognised and should the need for more involvement arise in the future then the relationship started here may well yet come to fruition. Thank you once again for the time and support you gave us.

- Dear Keith and the Team at KSA
I would like to personally thank you all for your help in securing the CVA for us. It has been a difficult few months but with the professional service that you and your company have provided we have been able to give ****** a fighting chance in succeeding over the next few years. I would like to thank in particular Marie for the fantastic job she has done in dealing with our creditors and believe she is a great asset to your company, her professionalism was at the highest level and even though was bombarded with many problems at the same time reacted firmly and positively throughout this process.
It was a pleasure seeing yourself and Wayne at Tower 42 today and wish you a successful year end and year to come (hopefully no more business from me )

"Keith is a key component of the UK turnaround sector; he has a wealth of experience. I see company voluntary arrangements becoming increasingly popular in the current climate for troubled businesses as pre-packed administrations lose favour for very good reasons; namely they favour financial institutional creditors at the expense of Joe and Joanne Public Limited, your 'ordinary unsecured creditors. Keith is an expert in the field. I rate him highly." June 8, 2009

This is a short note to say thank you to you and your excellent team for helping us achieve a CVA. The service that you provide is, frankly, unbelievable! Having realised that our company was in trouble, it took me some time to work out that we needed help ... fast. A Google search for "Company in Trouble" brought up www.companyrescue.co.uk and, having clicked on the link, I ended up on your website. The information on your website is informative, helpful and comprehensive. It was with some trepidation that I decided to call – having reached one of the lowest points.
My first call was with Philippa (Samaritan!). Philippa made me feel that there was hope, that it wasn't all my fault (even though I knew that some of it was!) and that, by careful management there might be a way out. Next Hugh (Counsellor!) came to visit and, having spent several hours listening to my problems and assessing whether there was a real prospect of recovery, he recommended that a CVA would be appropriate. Ian (Master!) prepared a proposal to support our company through and into the process of a CVA. At first I felt that we had 'no option' if we were to survive (and we didn't!), but very quickly I realised that a CVA is a good thing. The CVA enables us to re-structure, to re-think and to put together a plan for long term survival that should, if followed well, make us a much stronger and more profitable company than ever before. I didn't come to this conclusion alone though – firstly there was Annette (Saint!!) who tirelessly and patiently guided me through the process. Annette gave advice, support and sometimes humour throughout the entire process and never once got bored of me asking the same question over and over, or worrying her with my woes. Annette helped me through every step of the way and was at all times ... brilliant! Finally, of course, there is yourself, Keith (King!). Your advice and support and your expert knowledge cannot, I am sure, be paralleled. It is only through your support and knowledge that we would ever have got this far.
We would never, ever have got through the last few months without the knowledge, support and guidance that KSA Company Rescue provides. Your fees are incredibly reasonable for the service that you provide and the knowledge and expertise second to none. Thank you to all of your team for being so brilliant!
If every you have anyone who wants to talk to a reference client, maybe someone who wants to know what to expect from you, or just a plain old reference, come to me – I will have no hesitation what-so-ever in recommending KSA Company Rescue as the best service for companies needing help ... anywhere!

Subject: A GREAT BIG THANK YOU....
Hi everyone at KSA,
This is just to say a GREAT BIG THANK YOU for all your hard work and dedication in getting the CVA through for all of us and the creditors of B S Ltd.
I can't put into words how much this means to me and the team. We are all delighted and now feel that we can truly focus on getting back to work with supreme confidence for the future.
The service you provide is invaluable and so worthwhile. You should all sleep very well at nights, with the certain knowledge that you are helping so many people at a time of crisis.
I really don't know what I would have done if Keith hadn't come to see me that day and spent the 3 and a half hours with me that helped to change the fortunes of the company.
You all really deserve the e-mail address of companyrescue as that truly is what you do.
Many many many thanks again from a truly grateful Trevor.
PS. Whenever I can help you with a letter of recommendation or anything to help at all. Just get in touch please.

CVA with a Hive Down of Intellectual Property (2008)
"Keith it has been an absolute pleasure paying your fees, you delivered everything you said your company would. Even though we needed to fundamentally change the plan, your team worked tirelessly to get the CVA done. The lawyers you introduced were top quality and we felt confident all along that the CVA proposal and restructuring of the IP would be accepted. Many thanks from all of us".
Paul Rowley, Berkshire.
Postscript from Keith, interested in how a hive down, like the above example,could allow a fresh start for your business with or without a CVA? If so please give me a call and describe your business problem. This method is particularly suited to companies with intellectual property, difficult contracts or high profile businesses. KS June 2008.

Subject: THANK YOU!!!
Keith, on behalf of everybody here thanks to you and all the team at KSA for all the hard work and effort in getting through what I know has been a "different" CVA to that normally experienced.
There are 23 happy families here (I hope!) secure in the knowledge that this business is a survivor and that with everyone's support going forward we can more than deliver what is expected of us.
Trust we will ALL sleep a little bit better, at least for tonight, before we really get this show on the road. It is a small word, but please take it with all the sincerity and meaning that 'thanks' can convey.
