Falcon provides industrial solutions throughout the execution phase to corporate and financial institutions facing complicated and strategic business decisions

About Us

The Falcon team consists of international business leaders focusing on enhancing values in underperforming companies, in addition to support value creation for growth companies. The team aims to capitalise on vast international Management/Board experience from more than 60 various companies worldwide in a range of industries.

Executing restructuring of non-performing companies and realisation of non-core business divisions varies significantly from management the day-to-day operations in an organisation. To minimize risk and maximize stakeholder value in such situations requires unique skills, to avoid the interruption of the going-concern business. 

The team has extensive experience in taking underperforming, distressed and non-core businesses through challenging periods.  Experience shows that underperforming and non-core businesses frequently take a large part of a company’s management attention, energy that is often better utilised on value creation in the core business of a company.

Further, Falcon has access to capital for investments if projects requires external financing. Capital is available for both recapitalisations and growth purposes.

Our clients are typically banks, private equity companies, financial institutions, international stock listed conglomerates, private companies and investors. The Falcon team operates out from Oslo, Norway.
