Delivering Strategic Assessment and Plan to Maximize Company Value

Distributor (Wholesale & Retail) of Recreation Clothing and Related Products.


A specialty retail and wholesale distributor of foreign and domestic produced clothing and other products was experiencing large losses and severe erosion of value. As a result, the company was transferred to the special assets group of its senior lender. The firm and its bank requested that DWH analyze the business including related real estate, other tangible assets, and intellectual property, and develop a plan to exit the banking relationship in a manner that would produce maximum value.


DWH performed an assessment of the company and assisted them with an assessment of the value of the company’s tangible and intangible assets, and provided general advice regarding its strategic and tactical options. DWH delivered to the company and its senior lender a plan to exit the relationship in a manner that maximized the value of the enterprise. Furthermore, DWH provided a detailed cash flow forecast used to measure progress against that plan upon its acceptance and implementation. The plan was accepted by the company and the bank, with the bank assuming joint responsibility for plan implementation.
