Situation

Situation

After many consecutive years of profitability, the general economic downturn in the United States caused the Company to suffer a significant loss in-season in fiscal 2008 and happened so swiftly that the Company could not downsize fast enough to mitigate the loss. As a result, the Company found itself with a large amount of excess inventory. Although profitability was restored in 2009, the Company faced lingering liquidity issues.
Solution

Solution

SSG Capital Advisors was retained to help the Company manage its existing lender relationship and seek new capital. In a very difficult credit environment, SSG helped deliver a new working capital facility that provided the Company with sufficient liquidity to continue its operational turnaround and to restore growth.
