Financial Distress Q&A for Private Equity Firms & Portfolio Companies

About the Private Equity Series

There is a whole new generation of private equity professionals who, heretofore, have known a business and economic environment where the living is easy: economic growth; artificially low interest rates; fawning lenders competing for their firm’s patronage and, relatedly, covenants that are incredibly generous. Things have changed fast and private equity firms need to pivot.

If your porfolio company is experiencing financial distress or the prospect thereof is keeping you up at night, you’ve come to the right place. We've published a series of articles to give straightforward answers to questions company directors and officers have – or should be asking.
