Special Situations

SRR professionals have significant experience advising in “special situations” where a company is facing an inflection point due to liquidity challenges, debt maturities or covenant compliance issues which can result from company-specific issues or cyclical and/or secular changes. In these situations, it is often imperative that the company and its advisors respond quickly to preserve flexibility, maximize the range of alternatives available, and ultimately preserve value for the company’s constituents.

SRR has multi-disciplinary capabilities and dedicates a full team of senior professionals with special situations and industry expertise to its engagements to offer objective, unbiased advice regarding the range of strategic and capital structure alternatives that may be available.
