Many otherwise successful businesses face challenges that make it difficult to meet certain debt obligations. Despite this, business owners have options and should pro-actively address the situation and initiate discussions with stakeholders. One of the keys to these negotiations is arriving at an appropriate valuation for the business. The alternatives we may assist clients with include:
- Negotiating with existing lenders;
- Refinancing existing debt;
- Selling non-core assets:
- Raising new debt or equity; and/or
- Pursuing court protection/bankruptcy.
The ultimate goal is to leave the business with an optimized capital structure that supports future growth with realistic and manageable debt obligations while maximizing value for our clients.
