FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

LEADING RESTRUCTURING FIRM BRANCHES OUT INTO CORPORATE ADVISORY 

 

-Mackay Goodwin expands its offering to corporate advisory services- 

 

Leading Corporate Restructuring Advisory firm Mackay Goodwin announced it is expanding its service to include corporate advisory services to help clients grow their business. 

 

The move comes after CEO Domenic Calabretta identified a real need to help businesses navigate some of the economic challenges that have presented themselves during COVID and succeed despite the economic pressures of the last 12 months. 

 

Says Calabretta: Mackay Goodwin has always specialised in helping businesses recover from economic challenges. Over the last year, it has become very apparent there are also some fantastic organisations, both listed and unlisted, as well as start-ups, which require specialist corporate advice about the most suitable business structure, growing their operations organically, how to secure funding or attract new investors, and how to execute mergers and acquisitions.

 

While we will continue to help businesses to restructure, it is imperative for our economy that new businesses can emerge, with a solid foundation for success, and the team at Mackay Goodwin is passionate about helping them to flourish,” he continues.

 

Mackay Goodwin has appointed two Joint Head of Advisory to head the new team.

Anthony Lucic has more than 15 years of insight and experience advising business and government organisations. Anthony has worked closely with numerous Fortune 500 companies as well as international governing bodies, in particular throughout the Asia-Pacific region. His experience directing multiple business units simultaneously, maximising investment outcomes, driving commercial initiatives, mitigating risk and ensuring advisory expectations are met, offer a breadth of knowledge for Mackay Goodwin’s new Advisory division. 

Michael J. Bogue (BCom) is a lateral thinking M&A practitioner and senior business executive with more than 25 years’ top tier experience across numerous industry sectors. He has worked in both large and boutique style M&A practices most notably within JPMorgan Chase & Co’s investment banking unit as Co-Head of Mining & Metals for Asia Pacific and Australian Oil & Gas. He has held a variety of senior executive management positions within ASX and internationally listed corporations. His experience ranging from large-scale cross border M&A transactions through to start-ups makes him ideally placed to advise businesses on scaling, debt and equity capital raisings and moving towards ASX listing.

“We are thrilled to have two such strong candidates to launch our advisory business, especially as their combined skillset allows them to work across all business sizes, geographies, and industries. We welcome Michael and Anthony to the team,” says Calabretta. 

 

The team is passionate about helping entrepreneurs and corporates to meet their business objectives and prosper in these challenging times. Navigating business set-up and structure, and securing finance, even as banks have tightened lending criteria, is critical for Australias economic growth,” he continues.

 

The move into a corporate advisory service offering is just the first step, with the company also announcing the launch on a free online Business Health Check assessment tool to help businesses at all stages of their life cycle. 

 

“Our online Business Health Check tool is a comprehensive way for businesses of all sizes to assess what they are doing well and where there are gaps,” says Calabretta. “In keeping with our new business advisory focus, the Online Business Health Check covers different areas which help define business success, including sales and marketing, IT systems, as well as financial health,” he concludes.

 

The Business Health check is free for businesses to use and can be accessed here.
