  • Success Stories

    • MCA was appointed liquidating trustee pursuant to a confirmed plan of liquidation regarding an alleged Ponzi scheme, in which owners of a concert promotion business had perpetrated a fraud involving in excess of $50 million. MCA was responsible for preparing detailed analysis of all cash sources and uses, negotiating final asset recovery and final distribution under the plan, and providing expert witness testimony in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court, District of Arizona.

    • MCA was engaged by the lender in a non-dischargeability case against an individual Debtor for judgment of $17 million. MCA investigated historical activity and actions of the debtor, its principals and related entities, and provided expert report and testimony illustrating fraudulent financial statements and unauthorized use of loan proceeds. MCA’s independent and objective work researching the facts assisted the court in concluding that the debt was, in fact, non-dischargeable to the debtor.

    • MCA was appointed as a state court receiver over the business and operations of a subprime automotive dealer/lender that included a vehicle leasing and sales operation in Phoenix. The case relied upon MCA’s expertise in the automotive industry to investigate vehicle title transactions and movement throughout several states in order to prove fraud and other violations on the part of the company’s owners. MCA assisted in asset recovery and obtaining judgments against former owners for the benefit of creditors.

    • MCA was the lender’s advisor for a $75 million national 3PL (supply chain management solutions, logistics services, and other related supply chain driven services). The company had identified the potential embezzlement of what was estimated to be $8 million by their Chief Financial Officer. Out of cash and in an over-advanced situation with the lender, vendors had stopped shipping and operations were at a standstill. MCA helped to identify additional embezzled funds bringing the total to $16 million. MCA was appointed Chief Restructuring Officer and successfully negotiated with the lender and vendors to reestablish production and operations. With operations reestablished the bank was able to sell its note, with minimal deficiency, to a private equity buyer.
