Corporate governance, in the strict sense, alludes to the UK Corporate Governance Code, which applies to listed public companies in the UK. In the wider sense, however, corporate governance encapsulates the internal policies and procedures put in place to manage how an organisation is run on all levels.
We realise that it is not always easy for business owners to achieve a straightforward exit. We are used to advising businesses in their long-term planning and creating innovative exit strategies to ensure that exit plans are not stifled by economic constraints.
From the management of effective relationships between shareholders and directors to the implementation of rigorous risk management policies, the importance of good corporate governance in any organisation, public or private, big or small, cannot be overstated. Indeed, we are seeing an increasing focus from private equity houses and institutional lenders on uncovering good corporate governance procedures in respect of potential borrower organisations.
