Forestry and forest products manufacturing has long been a cornerstone of Canada’s economy. Multiple forces are exerting downward pressure on the sector and now more than ever, companies need to consider strategies to increase cash flow.

Companies that are able to adapt to shifting industry conditions will be relying on lean operations and the strength of their balance sheets to do so. Given the maturity of the industry and the challenges ahead, opportunities abound for innovation and change. Those who have a clear strategy will be able to navigate the short term and position themselves well for the future.

Strategic options
Our Restructuring and Corporate Advisory group helps develop strategic plans. Companies can benefit from a renewed and increased focus on intermediate and near-term cash flows, consideration of possible refinancing alternatives and measures to deal with costs. Developing a robust plan can help ensure that the business is sustainable and that value is preserved while markets remain challenged. Plans address:

  • managing cash flow
  • evaluating alternatives to generate working capital
  • unlock potential value from past acquisitions
  • separation services on any potential or previously occurring divestitures.
