Investment Recovery Services

Investment Recovery Systems® Global Supply Chain Life Cycle Management for 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 and environmental concerns dictate that investment recovery services must be handled by seasoned—practiced—experienced professionals who possess a keen appreciation of the legal exposures, environmental risks, and lender 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. Our distressed asset specialists are practiced artists that provide secured creditors with the professional alternative.

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

Our comprehensive commercial loss mitigation and investment recovery services include 24/7/365 Receivers/Keepers, 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 Investment Recovery Center, the Port of Slidell in Slidell, Louisiana (Greater Gulf South, USA). Our investment recovery technicians are specifically trained in machinery and equipment removal, and our practiced methods and procedures serve to protect and enhance the value of our client’s assets, unlike lesser, Velvet-Elvi’, equipment maulers so often associated with such activities.

Our 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 on-site or from one of our strategically located Investment Recovery Centers of America® venues.

The choice is yours… PICASSO OR VELVET-ELVIS…
