Liquidation Case Study North East Recruitment Company

20 February 2012

Did you know the recruitment sector has the highest percentage of business failures of any business sector in the UK?

Again a recruitment group approached us via this website and asked for immediate assistance, always good when people act quickly in our view!

A group of three companies had lost a major contract with a multi-national accounting firm. Sales fell from £4.5m to £2.5m overnight. The board hung on to staff and fixed costs thinking they would either win the work back or replace it. Neither happened of course but the directors simply did not know what powerful company restructure mechanisms were available.

The group is now reduced to one much smaller company using a CVA to control the deal. Two companies were liquidated one rescued with CVA.
