Uniquely focused firm announces official entrance in Houston with Fred Zeidman
HOUSTON, Feb. 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — After a year working behind the scenes in Texas, New York-based investment bank Gordian Group is concentrating more resources on the Houston market and companies feeling the capital structure stress that falling prices have brought. With a Texas nexus due to its Chairman, Fred Zeidman, being resident in Houston, Gordian brings its unique focus on shareholders and old equity, a conflict-free approach that sets it apart from other financial advisory firms that advise both shareholders and creditors and thus provides great comfort to boards of directors seeing optimal advice and safety.
Recent transactions, such as the Transcoastal debt for equity swap and the Quicksilver bankruptcy 363 sale, are powerful evidence that the shareholder-centric approach of Gordian Group is important and not being addressed by others in the marketplace – in both situations shareholders were completely wiped out.
Zeidman is a well-known Houston community leader who has Gordian Group seeking to support small and global businesses in complex, distressed financial situations in Texas. Zeidman has had great success in both the oil and gas sector and healthcare.
“Our team has been in business for more than 25 years and in that time has successfully completed nearly 300 engagements, wresting value for shareholders in difficult situations and protecting boards of directors in the toughest of times,” said Fred Zeidman, Gordian Group Chairman. “The sophisticated judgment and relentless commitment we bring to clients will be of great benefit to companies in Houston undergoing financial hardship and requiring critical decision making for the future of their organizations.”
With a proven track record and a team that consistently ranks among the top 10 investment bankers in the field of restructuring and M&A, the boutique firm provides services such as financial restructurings and reorganizations, mergers and acquisitions, public and private financings, and expert witness and litigation support.
“Our expertise is relevant to so many different companies in and around the Houston area, particularly within the oil and gas industry given current economic conditions,” continued Zeidman. “These companies need unconflicted advice from an advisor they can trust who is dedicated to finding creative solutions to their financial problems. We have plenty of ideas about how to benefit shareholders and protects boards even in this down pricing market. That’s the epitome of what we do here at Gordian Group.”
