Special Situations Consulting

Financial strategies for distressed debtors

Addressing Capital Constraints in Non-standard Situations

BDO’s Special Situations group specializes in helping distressed debtors facing non-standard situations secure needed capital. We can help prepare you for your upcoming negotiations with Bank and Non-Bank Lenders and assist you in reviewing new credit agreements, amendments or financial restructuring agreements that can alleviate capital constraints. 

Our process begins with an assessment of your situation and your objectives. With this understanding, we will then work to prepare you to effectively negotiate debtors, lender groups, business development companies (BDCs), equity and debt funds, and other investors to present and review your business plan, financial projections and context — including industry assessment, competitive landscape, risks and opportunities. 

Once this phase is complete, we will support you through the implementation of your new source of capital — whether a new credit agreement, an amendment, or even a financial restructuring. 

We bring deep experience to special situations:

  • 3-statement modeling 
  • 13-week cash flow modeling
  • Understanding of adjustments to EBITDA
  • Working capital inputs
  • Credit agreement review for covenants and covenant calculation modeling 
  • Due diligence assessment
  • Budget and business plan review
  • Budget to actual variance analysis
  • Lender Advisory Deck preparation
