Where can I learn about how to save my client’s businesses?

KSA Group Seminars!! At KSA Group we are passionate about saving companies and feel that education is the key for business people and their advisors to ensure that good viable businesses are not thrown away. There is much ignorance about the rescue mechanisms available, such as informal turnaround, or company voluntary arrangements, and it is often the case that business people leave it too late to act to solve cashflow problems.

What is more, saving a viable business should be an aim of many company’s advisors. Many of these seminars are aimed at advisors that will learn that they can keep a client and be renumerated for helping to bring about the turnaround.

We have already held seminars in London, Edinburgh, Birmingham, Nottingham and Crawley to spread the word. If you want to attend any of these events and would like to have details of the next one then you should get in touch.

Upcoming Seminar is to be held in Leeds on the 20th of June. CVA’s explained and debated. Please get in touch with if you want to attend

Next Seminar is Turnaround from a Local, National, and International Perspective to be held in Reading on June 12th.

Latest Seminar to be held was CVA versus Pre Pack debate on the 8th May 2013 in London. Read the review of the event published in

3 Seminars that we held in Birmingham, Crawley and Bristol were a great success.

Seminar Edinburgh 19th February 2013

The meeting was addressed by a lawyer, a funder and a turnaround professional, who – drawing on their considerable experience in the field of restructuring – explained some of the options available to distressed companies in order to survive in the current tough economic conditions. The event was a sell out

KSA Group are keen to explain the benefits of the CVA mechanism to as wide a range of people as possible. As such, we were presenting at the Turnaround Management Association in Birmingham which was attended by 43 people. You can see the video of Keith Steven presenting below.

We also aim to bring the CVA mechanism to the attention of professionals in Scotland. We held a seminar in Edinburgh on the subject which was well attended. In 2011 there were a total of 14 CVAs done in Scotland compared to 765 in England and Wales….Recent statistics out has shown that only 1 CVA was approved in the first quarter of 2012.There are some legal issues as to why it is harder to get a CVA approved in Scotland but the differences do not account for the huge disparity.

Mercian Cycles To Go Into Liquidation

Derby based Cycle builder Mercian Cycles has gone into liquidation.  The firm specialised in making high quality steel frames with hand made decorative joinery ("lugs" in bike parlance).The company confirmed thr news to the publication saying: "Mercian Cycles Ltd has ceased to trade, and we have instructed an Insolvency Practitioner to assist us with taking the appropriate steps to place the Company into Creditors' Voluntary Liquidation."Opus Business Advisory Group have been appointed liquidators and said "we will be working closely with the company to help manage a controlled wind down of the business and a smooth transition for stakeholders".The bike company was founded in 1946 and was seen as quite eccentric with its lugs and flamboyant colours.  The firm had quite a cult following in the UK and the USA.However the cycling industry has had a hard time of late due to over capacity following the pandemic when everyone suddenly started to spend money on Bicycles.  Unfortunately, this new found enthusiasm did not last.
