I had worked with a team that had to take an old application written completely in cobalt and have it updated to C.

Since we had the original source, the developers had an easier time producing new code using the same logic from the old code.
It is massively easier then having to reverse engineer the entire application and start from scatch.

For example, when reverse engineering malware, it is much more challenging then just writing a program from scratch, since you have to try reverse engineering it and try to understand the logic that the original developer used when creating it.
