Wall Street Smarts … Main Street Sense™Court-Appointed Liquidator Services

Skillfully and judiciously maximizing value for all stakeholders.

A Court-Appointed Liquidator is an individual or entity appointed by a court to oversee the liquidation process of a company or organization. Liquidation involves the sale of assets to pay off debts and distribute the remaining funds among creditors and shareholders.

When a business faces financial distress or insolvency, a court may intervene to protect the interests of creditors and ensure a fair and orderly distribution of assets. The court appoints a liquidator to manage the liquidation proceedings, and this individual is responsible for identifying, valuing, and selling the company’s assets.

The role of a Court-Appointed Liquidator is to act impartially and in accordance with the legal framework governing liquidation. They are tasked with maximizing the value of assets for the benefit of creditors and stakeholders. The appointment of a liquidator by the court is often part of insolvency or bankruptcy proceedings.

For over 40 years in hundreds of assignments across industries and asset classes throughout the country, EDS has skillfully and judiciously served as Court-Appointed Liquidator for creditors, attorneys, investors, and all stakeholders to handle the disposition of troubled assets, real and moveable, tangible and intangible, in business disputes, commercial foreclosures, probate, divorce, bankruptcies, and myriad other legal proceedings.

TESTIMONIALS

The actions undertaken on behalf of Signal Capital have established a level of confidence that has resulted in EPA allowing Signal to dispose of movable property on the facility in a way that most secured creditors would ordinarily not enjoy. In fact, I know of no other analogous situation where the EPA Region 6 Removal Program has cooperated with a secured creditor to the extent it has due to your efforts.

Senior Attorney

USEPA, Region 6

TESTIMONIALS

Such a relationship generally does not develop whereby EPA would permit a secured creditor to liquidate uncontaminated movable property due to the realistic concern that such actions would aggravate existing environmental problems or would interfere with EPA’s removal action. It is not at all unusual that in EPA’s proper exercise of its CERCLA responsibilities such accommodations are flatly rejected.

Senior Attorney

USEPA, Region 6

TESTIMONIALS

Notwithstanding that general approach, you have demonstrated a level of responsibility and credibility that has warranted a different approach for EPA in this matter.

A Court Appointed Liquidator is a professional appointed by a court to manage and liquidate the assets of a company or individual in a legal proceeding. This can include bankruptcies, receiverships, and other types of financial restructuring. The Court-Appointed Liquidator’s role is to collect, protect, and preserve the assets of the company or individual and to distribute those assets to creditors or other stakeholders in accordance with the law.

The Court-Appointed Liquidator’s responsibilities may include:

  • Assessing the company’s or individual’s financial status, including identifying and valuing assets and liabilities.
  • Managing and liquidating assets, such as selling property or inventory, to repay creditors.
  • Investigating potential fraud or mismanagement by the company or individual and reporting this to the court.
  • Communicating with creditors and other stakeholders, such as shareholders, to inform them about the liquidation process.
  • Preparing and submitting reports to the court on the progress of the liquidation.

The Court-Appointed Liquidator must be neutral and impartial and be subject to oversight by the court to ensure that they act in the best interests of creditors and other stakeholders.

PICASSO OR VELVET-ELVIS…

Today’s business climate and environmental concerns dictate that Court-Appointed Liquidator services must be handled by seasoned—practiced—experienced divestiture professionals with decades of courtroom experience who master the facts and are able to present clear, objective, and compelling findings to judges and juries.

It is often said that liquidation is an art ’ and ‘art is in the eye of the beholder’. Think of a Picasso and a gas station corner vendor selling  Velvet-Elvis’. While both are appreciated by their respective audience as ‘art’—in both appreciation and value…they are worlds apart. To appreciate EDS’ artistry as a Court-Appointed Liquidator is to appreciate the difference.

To best understand who we are and how we can help you, it is best to understand and appreciate who we are not. We are not dot-com auctioneers, used equipment jockeys, or two-bubba’s-with-a-truck. Our Court-Appointed Liquidators are highly practiced artists who provide a professional alternative to creditors, investors, and all stakeholders.

Our practiced commercial loss mitigation, replevin, and asset recovery methodology and techniques are commensurate with the client’s best interests.  Our fee structure is incentive-based and promotes results that often exceed our client’s established goals. This ensures the highest and best values for our clients in converting their special assets and special situations to cash and relieves them of the frustrations, limitations, and especially the risks associated with such questionable Velvet-Elvi’.

EDS’ comprehensive commercial loss mitigation and Court-Appointed Liquidator services include 24/7/365 onsite crisis/interim management, dismantling, shipping, storing, maintenance, repair, and remarketing. We are particularly skilled at handling marine-related machinery and equipment, land-based and floating assets, e.g., inland vessels, work-boats, barges, cranes, drilling equipment, marine equipment, and cargoes along the Greater Gulf Coast of the United States at our flagship Asset Recovery Centers of America® venue, the Port of Slidell in Slidell, Louisiana (Greater New Orleans, USA). Our asset recovery technicians are specifically trained in machinery and equipment removal, and our practiced methods and procedures protect and enhance the value of our client’s assets, unlike lesser, Velvet-Elvi’—equipment maulers so often associated with such activities.

Our remarketing efforts are handled by our polished global market-makers who are particularly skilled in building markets and seeking out and identifying end-user purchasers, not middlemen nor dealers, for secure private-treaty sales. These efforts translate into significantly greater returns for our clients. Remarketing can be accomplished on-site or from one of our strategically located Asset Recovery Centers of America® venues.

The choice is yours… PICASSO OR VELVET-ELVIS.
