HOW WE DO WHAT WE DO
At Blue Ocean Capital, we operate in our own ‘blue ocean’, far away from the sometimes shark infested waters where conflicting interests, adverse publicity, high fees, and robust but formal and often inflexible processes can quickly combine to erode stakeholder value.
We make it our business to help our clients by creating unique and effective strategies, after all options have been explored and informed decisions made. We then commit ourselves to implementing these strategies and achieving agreed outcomes.
Our team are experts in the corporate advisory and restructuring field, with all the necessary qualifications and experience to offer the full suite of specialist services offered by others in these fields.
But we have deliberately chosen not to offer many of these services. In fact we do not actively seek out formal engagements in our trained field (ie as administrators, liquidators, receivers of troubled companies).
Instead we assist our clients in the creation of effective strategies for:
- structuring complex or challenging transactions and
- investing (or protecting existing investments) in distressed business or asset situations.
We use our unique blend of skill sets, our relevant industry knowledge and contacts and we instead offer a new, unique service.
We do not seek to replace or replicate the role of other professional advisers such as accountants and lawyers. We work as an objective advisor (and in a sense “right hand man”) to our clients, alongside existing professional advisers and other stakeholders. We use our expertise and past experience to identify and more often than not create opportunities within complex transactions or challenging situations to add (often substantial) value and to ensure desired outcomes are achieved.
We draw upon our many years of experience working with several of Australia’s leading corporate advisory, investment and restructuring firms and we have overseen, negotiated, structured and managed literally thousands of corporate transactions.
How do our flexible “no cost”* fee structures work ?
Our interests are completely aligned with those of our clients. We are completely flexible with our cost structures and we offer no (net) cost solutions, along with success-based fee structures based on achieving certain outcomes. In doing so we share the risk and we align our reward with achieving successful** outcomes for our clients.
* We guarantee that whatever arrangements we may agree for our services, the value that our clients derive from our services will outweigh the cost. A cost effective “no cost” win win situation.
** Successful – We measure success by our ability to achieve (client agreed) better outcomes.
