Paving the Path to a Distressed M&A Acquisition

A business experiencing financial difficulty (a “distressed” company) is often a great target for purchasers to acquire a business or its assets at a discounted price. While many are loath even to dip a toe into the murky waters of distressed deals for fear of unknown liabilities, others jump in because, if done right, acquiring the assets of a distressed business can yield a significant return for only a modest price. 

Please join McDonald Hopkins' Marc Carmel, Christal Contini, and Scott Opincar for a business hour that will detail the opportunities in purchasing distressed assets or businesses.
