EXM Partners is one of the Brazilian leading professional services firm, specialized in Turnaround Management and Business Reorganization. The firm was founded in 2002 by former PwC executives. Initially, the company`s main focus was to attend the SME´s market, which at the time was not well served by the “big four”. After the new Brazilian bankruptcy law came into force, in 2005, a completely new market for turnaround management and debt restructuring was opened. The firm foresaw this opportunity and pioneered this market. The firm has assigned more than 100 cases of turnaround and corporate restructuring, including mergers and acquisitions, asset sales, performance improvement, among other transactions.
