The Key To Business Profits In A Difficult Economy

The phrase “cash is king” is widely recognized because it is true.  When you solidify cash flow you solidify your business.

Cash of course can be borrowed. For  many companies, traditional sources of financing are nearly non existent.  Lines of credit are being tightened and there is little or no room for  loan covenants variations.  In this and all situations, the sooner management accepts responsibility for  the state of their business, the sooner they are in a mindset for moving the business forward.  What are the primary options for restructuring a business facing these circumstances?  The primary alternatives are:

1. Secure a lending facility from a source that is not a traditional bank.

2. Negotiate a new note with your existing bank – very unlikely right now.

3. File a restructuring plan under Chapter 11 of the US Bankruptcy code – an action of last resort and very costly.

4. Sell the business: viable if your business is attractive to a strategic buyer. You will need a creative contract if you expect to get much more than having your personal guarantees removed from the debt.

5. Close the business and do something else. You may feel you may want to do that but be careful since if your business assests upon liquidation do not cover the senior debt, your personal assets may be at risk. In this environment institutions are taking homes .

You may be thinking the above is written for a business experiencing losses in market share and profits.  Companies with bright pictures being painted are experiencing the impact of banks not lending. The money channeled to banks from the government is not flowing through to  companies deserving loans.

For this reason, alternative sourcing of funds is often needed.  A lot of time and energy can be spent finding the right deal or you can select a firm with the contacts that will get this done quickly on your behalf.

Last week I was in a meeting discussing options, strategies and pricing for services. It is very common for owners to begin calculation how much money firms make when a deal closes. This money is commonly called success fees. I explained that success fees are in proportion to the solution delivered.  The right professional firms have the experience and the contacts to move quickly and get results. How valuable is that when considering the alternatives?

Sharing with all my readers the energy of peace, happiness and abundance

Reorganization Under Chapter 11 of The Bankruptcy Code – A Last Resort


All Business Crisis Management and Business Turnaround consulting work is done with the direct involvement of Steve Pohlit, President of International Busines Consulting Resources.

I follow the five step process outlined on the main page my business crisis management site -click here. I will do everything possible to avoid a legal reorganization under the Federal Bankruptcy code. When that vehicle is necessary to protect your business, it must be a last resort. The reason is that the administrative costs of reorganization under Chapter 11 of the US Bankruptcy Code are huge. There are attorney fees, administrative fees of the court, trustee fees and professional accounting fees. All of these costs must be paid by the assets of the business or from concessions made by creditors. If your business is struggling, the sooner you call so we can begin addressing your core weaknesses the better.

My experience includes very successful business  turnarounds outside of bankruptcy court, successful turnarounds with the protection of the US Bankruptcy court and failures within the US Bankruptcy Court. I have turned around my own business that I purchased and was failing. I have worked with small and large companies, public and private. If you are concerned about the strength of your business you want someone who has personally been through the process as a business owner as well as an advisor. My business experience is extensive. If your business can be turned around, we will do it.

Business Crisis Management by Business Turnaround Specialist

If your business is in a crisis there are several compelling reasons why you should call a Business Crisis Management Specialist. However before you do, please review the following and download your detailed report on The Exact Steps To Business Turnarounds.  It is possible you can do this yourself. However, it is likely to be in your best interest to use a business turnaround specialist.

How do you know if your company is in trouble? (For a complete presentation please visit Business Crisis Specialist )

Here are key indicators:

  • Do you worry about running out of cash?
  • Has your financing bank or lender reduced your line of credit or, even worse, called your loan?
  • Do most of your key vendors have you on COD?
  • Have any checks issued by your business bounced?
  • Are you delinquent paying taxes or benefit insurance?
  • Are revenue trends decreasing and accounts payable increasing?
  • Have your valued employees left for a “better opportunity”?
  • Are you spending all of your time fighting fires?
  • Do you wake up at night fearing you will be out of business?
  • Do you fear you will not have enough cash to meet your next payroll? What about the next?
  • Are you thinking or have been advised that a reorganization of your business under Chapter 11 of the US Bankruptcy code may be the answer?
  • Do you feel you are at or near crisis stage?

“If you answered yes to more than one of these questions, then you need to call me, Steve Pohlit,  at 727-587-7871 Right Now. That is my direct line.
