Why do companies Restructure ?

Corporate restructuring can be driven by a need for change in the organizational structure or business model of a company, or it can be driven by the necessity to make financial adjustments to its assets and liabilities. Frequently, it involves both. Companies restructure for a variety of reasons:

Internal reasons behind corporate restructuring -

  • High labour costs,

  • Unclear roles & responsibilities,

  • Poor internal communication,
