The Execution

  • Structured the Company’s forbearance agreement and streamlined construction, finance, and portfolio management operations – improving efficiency and profitability which resulted in $30M of savings.
  • Stabilized the Company’s $275MM loan portfolio, however, due to significant debt obligations, a decision was reached to restore value to stakeholders via a bankruptcy filing and §363 asset sale.
  • Worked closely with the primary secured lender (RFA), Houlihan Lokey, and legal counsel to enter into Chapter 11 proceedings while pursuing potential buyers.

The Results

As financial advisors, CRO, COO and CFO, our team was able to stabilize the Company’s loan portfolio and capitalization and spearhead the successful sale of assets to Diamond Resorts International.
