When To Ask For Help

It’s staggering to think how many American companies are likely to become insolvent over the next decade. What makes it worse is that most will not seek the right help early enough, even though this could save a significant number. In many cases, businesses that end up in foreclosure, receivership or bankruptcy have not heeded early warning signs and sought the right assistance at the appropriate time.

Companies must be willing to admit they need help. The earlier a restructuring/turnaround firm is engaged the more options that are available to restructure the business.
