Strategic Corporate Structuring Advice – GCC

Office: Horwath HTL UK

Overview: Horwath HTL was appointed to comment on and assist with the proposed restructuring of the hotel development and hotel holding divisions of a major sovereign wealth fund and to advise of the consolidation of their assets.

Solution: The Client was planning to transfer a number of existing hospitality assets and projects into a hotel subsidiary. The Client had already retained the services of another company to advise them on the corporate finance aspects but later on approached Horwath HTL in order to assist with the hotel specific aspects of this restructuring. Our focus was on working closely with the client to help them identify the optimum corporate holding structure and provide recommendations with regards to an appropriate management structure and key executives for the future company.

Implementation: The client completed its restructuring, creating a new hotel operating division in the process and clearly delineating the investment, development and operating functions.
