Alandia Industries works with the management team
Our goal: lead a successful turnaround
investment in France together
Alandia Industries builds systematically the turnaround investment
business plan with the management team.
Any turnaround of a distressed company requires the execution of a disruptive strategy in a very short time. Alandia Industries can only carry out such a project with the support of the entire management team. Alandia Industries does not invest in a distressed company in which its approach and strategy would not be supported by the management team.
« Alandia Industries initially led an exemplary financial restructuring in close link to the creditors, which allowed Lansay to restore the solvency of its balance sheet. Their experience and operational involvement – throughout their investment – was key in significantly improving Lansay’s business model. Nicolas de Germay is a trusted partner with whom we will not hesitate to consider new opportunities for the future. » Serge Azoulai, President, Lansay
Alandia Industries provides operational support to the management team in the implementation of the turnaround plan
Alandia Industries brings not only its financial resources but also its expertise in business turnaround The successful implementation of a turnaround strategy requires not only industry expertise provided by the management team but also the experience and methodology adapted to these special situations. It is common that a management team, even experienced and very willing, is not prepared to treat extraordinary difficulties. One of Alandia Industries’ partners intervenes full-time until the end of the turnaround (6-18 months) in support of the management team to carry one or two strategic projects. This temporary contribution of skills accelerates the transformation of the company and allows it to break even faster. At the end of its mission, the partner involved with the company in its financial and / or operational restructuring will continue to sit on the Supervisory Board to provide insight and knowledge of how the company and its employees operate to other members of the Supervisory Board. More rarely and in the event of a managerial vacancy, it has happened that the partners of Alandia Industries (who have all been business executives) temporarily overtake the management of the company.
