Business Review and Liquidity Review

What we do

We work with financial stakeholders to conduct a review of the liquidity and related cash flow forecasts of borrowers to understand and analyse drivers of cash flow. For example, trading performance, working capital, restructuring costs or provision payments. This work requires us to assess amongst others, intra month peak requirements, vulnerabilities and potential upsides. This provides lenders with an independent view on whether its borrower has adequate liquidity to continue operating normally, thereby allowing time for the lenders to consider their options.

How we can help

We conduct high level ‘stress tests’ and analysis of the borrower’s business plan. We can help lenders take a view as to whether the business plan provides a reasonable basis to determine the debt capacity and to make future lending decisions, by taking the following steps:

  • Carrying out a review of track record plus normalising one-off exceptions, in order to provide a basis to test and challenge the management’s business plan.
  • Assessing revenue, costs and cash conversion assumptions included in the plan, and commenting on their reasonableness; and the use of specialist Deloitte resources to review specific aspects of the plan. For example, prevailing market assumptions, operational metrics / improvements, pension and tax.
