Duff & Phelps provides real estate consulting and restructuring services to companies with real estate holdings that are financially distressed.
We serve as a financial advisor to companies, financial sponsors, lenders, creditors and other interested parties in distressed situations. A restructuring transaction may involve:
- Chapter 11 (or in-court) process
- Out-of-court workout
- Distressed mergers and acquisitions (M&A)
- Special situation transaction, such as an exchange offer, debt-for-equity swap or other negotiation with creditors or interested parties
Companies, their creditors and other interested parties typically will seek a financial advisor when they renegotiate loan covenants; renegotiate with current lenders; raise new money or refinance existing debt; are in danger of defaulting on debt; need to sell assets; have weak operational metrics; experience a downgrade in corporate and debt ratings or price weakness in issuer's securities; or receive a going-concern qualification in the auditor's opinion. We will work with the interested party to find the appropriate solution to any of the potential issues above.
