With our proven track record and more than 15 years’ experience in assisting distressed businesses it is no surprise that CPM is a market leader when it comes to the rehabilitation of ailing businesses.
Under the leadership of Pat Pattinson we are skilled in using the formal Business Rescue procedures set out in Section 128 of the Companies Act, as well as more informal approaches to business turnarounds.

CPM are the pilgrims of business rescue; many now follow road we helped pave. This is clearly evident form our more than 95.% success rate of all plans published by CPM.

WHAT WE DO
Business Rescue facilitates the rehabilitation of financially distressed organisations. CPM has a proven track record in the field of business rescue and can aid all types and sizes of organisations with this process.
An interim director is an individual who assumes the role of a director, where the current director is not able to continue in their role, due to incapacity, suspension or dismissal. CPM Services has the experience and knowledge to assist.
Exit planning is not an attempt to camouflage problem areas, nor to enable a new broom to sweep clean. Rather, it is a process of organising the truth in a presentable manner. CPM Services can assist you to create an exit plan for every eventuality – not just for the sale or closure of a business.
CPM Services has built an exceptional reputation in the field of turnarounds and they have assisted clients in all forms of turnarounds – need to reinvent, reorganise, prepare for a sale or in financial difficulties? CPM can assist.
The CPM Services approach allows for the prompt evaluation of the corporation and the viability of cost-cutting in areas of possible overspending or wastage. This process allows for costs to be reduced where needed – and not necessarily where easiest.
Need help getting your business back on its feet? We can help.
