Leveraging our wide-ranging experience, we deliver successful outcomes in the challenging arena of corporate restructurings. From preparing an unbiased assessment of the current state of a business to supporting a company through a complex Chapter 11 bankruptcy, and everything in between, we are deeply involved but remain clear-headed and objective.
A thorough understanding of the intricacies of the restructuring process, both in and out of bankruptcy court.
Deep knowledge of complex capital structures, cross-collateralization, owner/shareholder/ fiduciary conflicts of interest, and other challenges.
Extensive hands-on experience that allows us to quickly stabilize a crisis situation and evaluate a company’s key business drivers, operating infrastructure, and competitive landscape.
Proven strategies that reduce losses, increase liquidity, and improve performance.
A collaborative approach to working closely with management teams, boards of directors, and investors to develop and implement turnaround plans that deliver.
Restructurings are not the time to climb the learning curve. We have been tested many times, across a wide range of businesses and industries.
We gain a holistic understanding of each business to build a tailor-made – often creative – restructuring strategy.
We reduce friction
The process is often contentious. We understand the stressful and adversarial reality debtors face and help to prepare our clients for hazards, reduce friction between parties, and devise productive solutions.
We are partners who bring together deep domain expertise and proven industry methodologies with a passion for focusing on outcomes. Our clients are the heartbeat of our business — we live their challenges every day, and problem-solving for them takes center stage in everything we do.
Roles We Play
Our wide-ranging experience translates to success in the following corporate restructuring roles.
Debtor Financial Advisor
We support the full lifecycle of a Chapter 11 process – negotiating debtor-in-possession financing, executing asset sales, confirming a plan of reorganization, and providing analytical support, strategy, and expert testimony.
Chief Restructuring Officer
Boards hire Force 10 as their CRO when the company’s officers have conflicting fiduciary obligations, a restructuring plan is off track, or to keep management focused on operations.
Creditor Financial Advisor
Force 10 also represents secured creditors and creditor committees. Intimately familiar with debtors’ Chapter 11 strategies, we know how and when to leverage negotiating strengths and mitigate any weaknesses in a creditor’s position.
Turnaround & Crisis Management
Leveraging our financial and operational expertise, Force 10 provides companies in turnaround/crisis situations with an unbiased view of the current state of the business.
