The ability for a business to succeed in today’s highly competitive environment creates a unique set of challenges. Status quo is seldom the answer. Companies need to react quickly to market movements, anticipate market needs and implement outcomes designed to take advantage of market trends. Enhanced management, shedding of businesses, restructuring balance sheets and renegotiating key contracts are just some of the critical tools available to effectuate a successful restructuring.
DSI provides clients with best-of-practice advice and support in the face of significant operational, financial and strategic challenges. Stabilizing operations, improving efficiencies and providing strong leadership are just a few of the services we provide in order to achieve the optimal result with long-term success in mind. DSI’s services include:
- Crisis and Interim Management. DSI’s team of professionals is available to either enhance or fill key management roles. Immediate focus on liquidity management, business plan development and implementation, balance sheet structure and leadership are among the key steps DSI will undertake to help improve performance.
- Bankruptcy Fiduciary. Circumstances arise during the pendency of a bankruptcy case where it is in the best interests of the estate that a fiduciary be appointed to oversee and take control over the management of the debtor. Upon confirmation of the debtor’s plan, additional provisions may be made for the appointment of a post-confirmation fiduciary, such as a trustee or plan administrator who is tasked as the successor in interest to the debtor’s estate to manage the wind down of either non-core or remaining assets. DSI’s experience as bankruptcy fiduciary is significant, extensive and broad-reaching. Our professionals have served as trustee and other independent fiduciary roles in a number of large, complex cases, many of which have attracted great interest from the media and the general public.
- Committee Advisory Services. DSI has years of experience working seamlessly with creditor constituencies to ensure that maximum recoveries are achieved. The firm is able to discreetly review and provide a thorough analysis of the debtor’s financial and operational performance, comment upon the validity of business plans and financial projections, provide real-market values of assets and work with both ad-hoc and official creditors’ committees in the development of plans of reorganization. DSI will undertake all due diligence needs as well as provide monitoring of any asset portfolios.
- Monitoring Services. Once a restructuring has been successfully completed, DSI will work on behalf of the various stakeholders to monitor performance against expectations and provide appropriate guidance to ensure that the company takes full advantage of all opportunities to succeed.
