Company Restructuring & Software Licencing

Since the start of the COVID-19 crisis companies in the aerospace design and manufacturing sector have been particularly affected by the economic impact of the disruption to worldwide economies. Some have seen their orders and revenues drop immediately by sometimes 50% driven by the reduction in production of new aircraft.  

These companies have had to quickly reduce costs and take advantage of any state support.

However, those with low cash reserves have seen the need to restructure through some form of merger, sale or even some type of insolvency process.
