September 8, 2020
Bankruptcy often presents an opportunity for qualified bidders with access to cash to purchase quality assets at bargain prices. However, it also brings a major challenge: How do you assess the value of businesses with risky strategies, dwindling liquidity, limited resources, and uncertain prospects?
Managing Director Jeff Anapolsky wrote an article to help companies understand the situations they must review before considering a distressed purchase. a prudent investor must diagnose the primary cause of distress, evaluate a target company’s overall financial health, recognize whether its operations can be saved, and if so, acknowledge the amount of time, effort, and capital required to turn a business around. While there are many iterations of ways to participate in distressed M&A, not all transaction strategies result in successful deals.
