Special situation transactions are complex, time-sensitive initiatives that involve companies that are experiencing a liquidity crisis and diminishing value. For businesses that are under financial stress, it is important to understand that there is an inverse relationship between time and enterprise value: the more time a business remains under financial stress without a resolution, the faster the value of the business will likely deteriorate. This will likely result in fewer available restructuring options, which can ultimately result in the need for a bankruptcy filing.
The successful execution of a transaction for a company in financial distress requires highly specialized experience and knowledge of bankruptcy procedures, each constituent’s rights and remedies, and the ability to think creatively and negotiate effectively in an adversarial context.
