Businesses and Buyers of distressed Opportunities

May 16, 2011: by Bobby Guy – (Hardcover)

Distress to Success is written for the business leader struggling to return a company from the “red” into the “black.” It is written for the savvy buyer straining to find acquisition opportunities in an unrealistic market. If you are one of these two kinds of people, it is written for you.

For the struggling company, Distress to Success is a roadmap to early intervention when good options are still available. It presents business executives with a new paradigm for thinking about financial distress, takes them on a crash course through what to expect, and then arms them with strategies for achieving a confident recovery.

For the distressed investor, Distress to Success outlines the complex strategies that arise in the ever-evolving landscape of insolvency, and provides buyers with tactics for achieving success in the pursuit of exciting undervalued opportunities.
