EDS Special Situations Investment Banking/Distressed M&A Advisory

Wall Street Smarts… Main Street Sense

Special situations investment banking refers to the practice of providing financial and strategic advice to companies or assets that are undergoing special situations such as mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, or other types of corporate transactions. Special situations investment bankers typically work with companies that are in financial distress or undergoing major changes in order to help them navigate these complex situations and optimize their financial outcomes.

Some of the key activities of special situations investment bankers include:

  • Identifying and evaluating potential acquisition targets or divestiture candidates
  • Advising on and executing complex financial transactions, such as mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures
  • Assessing and managing risks related to a company’s financial distress
  • Providing strategic and financial advice to boards of directors and management teams
  • Raising capital for companies facing financial distress

Special situations investment bankers typically have a deep understanding of the industry and the specific companies and assets that they are working with, and are able to provide valuable insights and advice on how to navigate and capitalize on complex situations. They also have to be familiar with the regulatory environments and be able to work with lawyers, accountants, and other professionals to ensure that the transactions are executed smoothly and in compliance with the laws.

Special situations investment banking is considered a high-risk, high-return business and is usually less active than the traditional investment banking activities.
