Regional Commercial & Residential Waste and Recycling Service Provider: California
MCA was retained by management pursuant to a forbearance agreement with the company’s lenders to oversee operations and assist with a refinancing, or sale, of the company. MCA worked with the leadership team to divest unprofitable subsidiaries, manage cash flow in times of cash constraints, and formulate an exit strategy that would benefit the Company’s ESOP shareholders while operating within the lender imposed time constraints. MCA ultimately helped the company complete a sale transaction that repaid all creditors and resulted in a favorable share price.
SERVICES & FRANCHISING
Pet Cremation Services
MCA Financial’s expert knowledge and depth of experience working on M&A transactions were essential to delivering exceptional results and exceeding our client’s expectations. This engagement was particularly noteworthy since the original buyer was unexpectedly acquired by its largest competitor in the middle of the sale process, resulting in wholesale change in the identity of the buyer. This unforeseen development created new and unique issues to overcome, including an entirely new due diligence review process and renegotiation of previously agreed upon deal terms. Irrespective, with MCA Financial’s advice and guidance, the sale closed on the terms originally agreed to between MCA’s client and the original buyer.
Restructuring & Turnaround
3PL Supply Chain Services
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.
Restructuring & Turnaround
Cheese and Cheese Product Manufacturer
MCA was the court appointed receiver for a group of companies with locations in Ohio, Nebraska, and California who provided blending, packaging, and production of real dairy and dairy substitutes. The company was over-advanced on its line of credit and out of cash. Significant vendor issues existed.
