What does restructuring mean?

Restructuring or reorganising your business is often necessary to make the firm more profitable, and doing so can also make it run more efficiently. Alternatively, it may be something that needs to be done if the owner is planning for a future exit.

In addition, restructuring may take place if the owner of the business is planning for succession or bringing in new shareholders - it can also occur when a business is experiencing financial difficulties.
