13 Nov Distressed M&A
The mantra “buy low, sell high” will never die. There is no better example of opportunities to get assets on the cheap than during times of distress and duress. This is only ideal if you are the company buyer, not necessarily the target. Targets of distressed M&A can certainly be exploited and financiers have all-to-often been branded as corporate raiders during times of distress when hostile takeovers or fire sales occur.
Distress does not necessarily mean the end of the road for your business. For instance, many companies in distress, with the right partner, can find unique, creative and long-lasting ways to restructure, reorganize and regroup to ensure the business and its profits last for years to come. With contacts within our network of advisors, we work with strategic private equity, venture capital and hedge fund management to find the best route for a health salvation of the business and its assets, especially during times of immense crisis.
Here are a few basic examples of the services we provide which could mean the difference between survival and a quick fire sale.
- Restructuring with Chapter 11 bankruptcy
- Profit & Loss Statement improvements
- Debtor-in-Possession (DIP) and exit financings
- Complete corporate recapitalizations

A business in distress is akin to a sick body. Without the proper care and even with invasive surgery, the quality of life can be improved and lengthened for significant amounts of time. Businesses in distress is never the ideal, but if restructuring is properly executed with the right partners then companies can find themselves on the right path going forward.
