AEG recently assisted a second lien lender to a consumer products company operating in the multi-level marketing space. Leveraging AEG’s prior experience with distressed firms in the industry, AEG provided unique insights into expected recoveries stemming from a product wind-down strategy, the value of the company’s consultant network, as well as intangible assets including the brand name. In addition, AEG was able to preserve a series of assets that allowed the lender to enhance its position among the capital constituents.
AEG recently teamed with the Thompson Coburn Law Firm and Stifel Financial to discuss issues facing distressed higher education institutions. Craig Dean, Managing Principal, who has worked on many aspects of school restructurings, participated from AEG. Discussions covered a range of issues relevant to today’s environment, including internal restructuring actions, merger and acquisition strategies as well as more drastic measures such as orderly campus closures. Thompson Coburn Education Practice Head Aaron Lacey led the panel, which also featured Brian Dietze, Head of the Education Investment Banking Group at Stifel Financial.
