Investment Recovery Services

Investment Recovery Systems® provides capital asset redeployment and disposition services to multinational corporations throughout-the-world. 

Our investment recovery corporate services programs capture the highest value of both real and movable assets by redeploying, repurposing or converting surplus, overlapping, nonessential, nonperforming and other such assets to cash and returning these dollars to the company’s treasury. Our programs and services have generated billions-of-dollars for our clients throughout-the-world.

EDS’ award-winning investment recovery programs and services have earned us the distinction of being the only company of its kind that the USEPA allows to conduct such services on active Superfund Sites. We believe that this and our investment recovery body-of-work for such giants as Merck, Pfizer, GE, and many others throughout-the-world speak to our expertise and the level of confidence placed in us.

We specialize in handling all efforts related to the environmentally responsible disposition of industrial, manufacturing and distribution-related plants and facilities and all capital assets through corporate consolidations and restructuring transactions.

For companies seeking flexibility through liquidity, we perform outright asset acquisitions across all asset classes and industries.

Financial Guarantees
To provide certainty and liquidity to our global clientele, we offer financial guarantees for many of our services. Our creative, guaranteed solutions, minimize risk and realize cash quickly. As a result, our clients have the capital to achieve their objectives. We leverage our own balance sheet with up-front capital, either as an outright purchase or a unique structured arrangement with participation on the part of the client.


Today’s business climate dictates that investment recovery activities must be handled by seasoned—practiced—experienced professionals who possess a keen appreciation of the legal exposures, environmental risks, and corporate responsibilities that surround these activities.

It is often said that ‘liquidation is an art’ and that ‘art is in the eye of the beholder’. Think of a Picasso and a 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 in investment recovery—is to appreciate the difference.

We are not dot-com auctioneer’s, used equipment jockeys nor two-bubba’s-and-a-truck. EDS’ specialists are practiced-artists that provide corporates with the professional alternative. Our practiced investment 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 the redeployment, repurposing or conversion of surplus, overlapping, nonessential capital assets to cash, and it relieves them of the frustrations, limitations, and especially the risks so often associated with such questionable Velvet-Elvi’.

Our technicians are specifically trained in machinery and equipment removal and our practiced methods and procedures serve to protect and enhance the value of our clients’ assets unlike equipment maulers so often associated with asset recovery activities.

Asset remarketing efforts are handled by our polished global market-makers who are particularly skilled in building markets and in 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 either onsite or from one of our strategically located Investment Recovery Centers of America® venues. EDS owns/operates strategically located multipurpose venues for the storage and remarketing of recovered assets. Our full-service Recovery Centers fulfill EDS’ unique capacity to immediately marshal our clients recovered moveable assets, air, land, and marine to our secure facilities for disposition. Our flagship Recovery Center is Investment Recovery Centers of America® in Slidell, Louisiana (Greater Gulf South, USA).

The choice is yours… PICASSO OR VELVET-ELVIS…
