Competitive forces with the unleashing of the liberalization policieshave made corporate restructuring a sine quo non for survival andgrowth. Operational, financial and managerial strategies are employedto maintain competitive edge and turnaround a sickened performance.Financial restructuring involves either internal or external restructuring(i.e. Mergers and Acquisitions).
