Companies periodically assess and deliberate ways to improve their financial results, and one way of achieving this may be through a successful corporate restructuring exercise, undertaken pursuant to the applicable laws.

A corporate restructuring exercise may involve the acquisitiondisposalconsolidation or amalgamation of assets or shares. Other reasons that may compel a company to restructure may be to prepare the company for a salemerger or management buyout. In almost all cases, legal and financial reasons will dictate the approach and outcome.
