AEG Partners was recently retained by a senior lender group to assist in the restructuring of an operator in the food service sector. Facing a sharp decline in revenues due to COVID 19 combined with needed capital investment to meet the market requirements of its customers, the Company had a severe liquidity crisis looming. Working with management and the capital constituents, AEG led the negotiation of a consensus driven out-of-court restructuring, attracting new financial commitments from both the private equity sponsor and the senior lender to allow the Company to manage through this challenging period.
