EDS Distressed Asset Management Services involve managing assets that are under financial distress or facing significant operational challenges. These assets include businesses, real estate properties, loans, or securities. Distressed asset management typically occurs in the context of lending, where creditors seek to protect and profit from troubled assets by either turning them around or liquidating them for maximum value.

Key components of our Distressed Asset Management Services include:

  1. Identification and Assessment: The first step involves identifying distressed assets and assessing their underlying problems. This may include financial analysis, due diligence, and understanding the reasons behind the distress, such as market downturns, poor management, or excessive debt.
  2. Formulating a Strategy: Based on the assessment, a strategy is formulated to address the challenges faced by the distressed assets. This could involve restructuring debt, operational improvements, cost-cutting measures, renegotiating contracts, or seeking new sources of financing.
  3. Execution: Once a strategy is developed, EDS, the distressed asset manager, executes the plan to stabilize the asset and enhance its value. This may involve hands-on management, bringing in our turnaround specialists, implementing operational changes, or negotiating with suppliers, and other stakeholders.
  4. Monitoring and Adjustments: EDS distressed asset managers closely monitor the performance of the assets and make adjustments to the strategy as needed. This could involve reassessing market conditions, refining operational plans, or adapting to unexpected challenges.
  5. Exit Strategy: Ultimately, our goal is to generate returns for creditors and investors. This could involve selling the asset once it has been stabilized and its value has increased, restructuring the asset for long-term ownership, or liquidating it through bankruptcy proceedings or other means.

Receivership Services:

Receivership services are a legal process in which an independent third party, known as a receiver, is appointed by a court or other authorized party to take control of and manage the assets of a company or individual in financial distress. The receiver’s primary responsibility is to preserve and protect the company or individual’s assets and manage them in the best interests of the court, creditors, and all stakeholders.

Receivership services may be used in various situations, including bankruptcy, foreclosure, or other types of financial distress. They can also be used when a company is being liquidated or restructured. In some cases, the receiver is appointed to manage the assets of a company or individual on an interim basis, while in other cases, the receiver is appointed to manage the assets permanently.

The receiver’s responsibilities may include:

  • Taking possession and control of the assets
  • Identifying, valuing, and preserving the assets
  • Managing and operating the assets to generate revenue
  • Selling or disposing of the assets
  • Paying the company’s or individual’s debts and obligations
  • Preparing and submitting reports to the court or other authorized party

Receivership services can be an effective way to manage and preserve the assets of a company or individual that is in financial distress. The court or other authorized party appoints the receiver and acts as an independent third party, which can provide a measure of objectivity and impartiality to the process.

It’s important to note that the receivership process is typically court-supervised, and the receiver’s actions and decisions are subject to court approval. The receivership process may be subject to different laws and regulations in some jurisdictions.

Turnaround Management and Restructuring Services:

Our Turnaround Management Systems® and Restructuring teams marshal onsite 24/7/365 worldwide to provide the complete spectrum of crisis/interim management and turnaround services. Our teams work closely with creditors and their legal representatives to preserve, protect, manage, operate, and enhance the going concern value of troubled businesses and/or business assets that might otherwise be lost during bankruptcies, foreclosures, and related actions while actively pursuing permanent solutions.

A Turnaround Management Scenario …  A borrower in financial distress raises myriad commercial loss concerns for its creditors, including increased risk of less than payment in full of its loan, increased liabilities, additional legal costs and expenses, and greater utilization of creditor resources. When a borrower shows signs of distress, it is critical for the creditor to promptly and proactively develop a thoughtful turnaround management strategic plan to mitigate issues and identify options available to strengthen the creditor’s position in the credit facility. Doing this is an essential first step for a creditor interested in maximizing its recovery and limiting its exposure.

Our Collateral Management suite of services includes comprehensive transactional Due Diligence, Appraisals, Feasibility Studies, Deal Vetting, Credit Analysis and Analytics, Risk Assessments, Project Management, Collateral Reviews, Environmental Compliance Reviews, Account Monitoring, Independent Auditing, Field Inspections, Asset Tagging, UCC Filings, and Periodic Onsite Compliance Inspections.

After establishing goals and objectives, our lender services compliance teams prepare comprehensive due diligence protocols, develop account and site-specific strategies, and visit the client’s location(s). We meet with borrowers and site management personnel to communicate the level of compliance its lender requires courteously and professionally, leaving no room for interpretation. 

Our distinctive Distressed Asset Management, Turnaround Management, Collateral Management, and Risk-Mitigation Services reduce risk and bring our clients the safety, comfort, flexibility, and confidence to increase credit to existing customers and to seek out and book new business opportunities where others cannot.
