Rebuilding Companies

Our experience shows us that companies tend to act "too little & too late" when facing crisis symptoms. The digital and sustainable transformations are impacting all businesses and responding too late and too little to those new challenges can endanger the profitability and liquidity of companies until a point of no return. 
At RSQ, we help businesses to react on time and with enough effort to those challenges. For this, RSQ has built an integrated offering for helping companies adapt and take advantage of these changes to create sustainable long-term value.

Process

The RSQ Investors approach includes 4 key steps: a quick scan before the investment, the structuring and closing of the transaction, the development of a transformation plan and ultimately its implementation by our core team, leveraged by our network of experts and investors.
Our value proposition: transform your company towards a more sustainable future.
Our long-term perspective and hands-on approach differentiate us from traditional private equity companies as we believe it takes time to rebuild companies and deliver significant value for all stakeholders.
