Turnaround Management Systems®


For over 40-years, EDS’ Turnaround Management Systems® Group has skillfully guided and judiciously represented secured creditors, attorneys and law firms, investors, and myriad other stakeholders in managing their distressed asset Turnaround Management needs.

From National Priority List Superfund Sites—to a decommissioned nuclear-powered aircraft carrier—to the pencils-on-the-desk, we handle it all. We have successfully managed and generated billions of dollars for our global clientele in the management and disposition of troubled assets to cash.

The impact of complex and contentious litigation in many turnaround situations can complicate, if not destroy, the secured creditor’s position if not handled properly. Non-current, non-performing, distressed, and troubled accounts present many pressing challenges. When problematic accounts facing operational and/or financial challenges occur, our experienced—street-savvy—proficient transitional management teams employ creative—proven solutions that often reverse and cure these situations immediately.

Our Turnaround Management Systems® Group marshals onsite 24/7/365 throughout the world to provide the complete spectrum of crisis and interim management and disposition services. Our teams work closely with the secured creditor and its legal representatives to preserve, protect, maintain, operate, and otherwise enhance the going-concern value of troubled businesses and/or business assets that might otherwise be lost during bankruptcies, foreclosures, restructurings, liquidations, and related actions while actively pursuing permanent solutions.

EDS specializes in providing turnaround management for secured creditors and investors with troubled accounts facing environmentally impaired assets, real and moveable. We are particularly experienced in providing transitional management, wind-downs, and the disposition of industrial, manufacturing, and distribution-related plants and facilities and highly contentious special situations.

Our award-winning services have earned us the distinction of being the only Court-Appointed Receiver in the country that the United States Environmental Protection Agency allows to provide such Turnaround Management services on active Superfund Sites.

We are pleased to serve as Keepers for the U.S. Marshals Service for federal court seizures of assets under admiralty jurisdiction.

We are very proud of these distinctions and believe that it and our body of work for such multinational giants as Merck, Pfizer, Mellon, Signal Capital, Ally Capital, and GE speak to our level of expertise and the confidence placed in us.

EDS seeks to partner with owners, managers, and secured creditors to achieve the best outcome for all stakeholders. These efforts often lead to exceptional investment opportunities for EDS’ Distressed Assets Private-Equity Investment Partners.

EDS’s unparalleled level of expertise is recognized and appreciated in boardrooms and courtrooms throughout the world. How may we be of service to you?
