Corporate brochure
Debt restructuring is a complicated, but necessary process that allows a company (private or state-owned) to focus on future development and make the right decision. 

Restructuring requires a balanced and practical approach to debt issues and at the same time forecasting its future development.

In the process of providing debt-restructuring services, UNITER specialists prepare a reasonable forecast plan for resolving restructuring issues, and hold negotiations with all interested parties to achieve consensus and resolve problems. As a result, the owner receives at his disposal a comprehensive financial document (a detailed financial model for the forecast of financial and business activities), market analysis, within which the organization operates.
