Stressed & Distressed Transactions and Advisory

Financial solutions to help regain stability and maintain control of your business

Have you recently asked the bank to waive covenants or amend terms? Are you feeling pressures from your key suppliers, or other stakeholders due to cash-flow or other financial challenges? Have you been asked to sign a forbearance agreement or has your account been sent to special loans group at the bank? If so, the time to act is now.

Decisive and swift action is required to survive and maintain control of your business, and a specialized and collaborative approach is the only way to respond to these challenges.

Helping you on both sides of the equation

Act quickly when you see the early triggers of financial distress—including cash flow problems, shrinking profit margins, eroding customer base or market share, and expressions of concern or pressure from bankers and suppliers.

Whether you need debt financing expertise, restructuring support, or both—immediate action buys you the time to formulate a plan and minimize the perception of desperation.
