Managed Liquidations

There may be time when a Managed Liquidation is the alternative to take when winding-down a business operation. A Managed Liquidation is appropriate when corporate operations are relatively straight-forward and the balance sheet is not overly burdened with complicated debt arrangements. If these situation occur, a Managed Liquidation may be more attractive than a formal bankruptcy filing or Assignment for the Benefit of Creditors (ABCs). It also may be an alternative, when an owner or board decide the company has run its’ course and it is time to close.

We Simplify the Liquidation Process

Our goal is to simply the process of liquidation and maximize the outcome for the owners, investors and creditors of the company. Often, when Sherwood Partners steps in, to a managed liquidation…we find that employees are tense, unpredictable, creditor relations are strained, customers are uncertain and management is overwhelmed with the every day critical issues or knowledge how to fully monetize the assets.

We restore organization and calm to the chaos.

By methodically and efficiently tackling the key stress points as well as stabilizing the main assets in the company, Sherwood Partners’ professionals can provide an orderly process to wrapping up the corporate operations and efficiently and fully monetize the assets.

Simplify the Liquidation Process

The concept of Managed Liquidations is similar to an Assignment for the Benefit of Creditors (ABCs), with the exception that it is not a legally outlined process. Therefore, there is not the same protection from creditors. However, in the proper circumstances these liquidations are the optimal solution.
