Mackinac Partners

Turnaround Management & Corporate Restructuring Advisory

Businesses face an array of dynamic challenges – from regulatory impacts and global competition to technological innovations, vertical integration, and supply disruptions. These dynamics can sometimes result in the loss of key customers, market share, or revenues, leading to liquidity and working capital issues, and broader debt and capital structure issues that require a strong plan of action. Mackinac Partners provides highly skilled and responsive assistance to companies dealing with operational and financial crisis, capital structure and debt issues, underperforming business units, or liquidity and working capital issues.

Mackinac Partners provides restructuring services to companies, equity sponsors, as well as creditors in distressed situations—a repertoire of experience that helps us address core liquidity and working capital issues efficiently. Timely analysis of the situation allows us to accelerate negotiations with lenders, bankers, lawyers, and new capital partners, as well as implement a strategic restructuring plan tailored towards future stability, improved performance, and maximum value to stakeholders and company directors.
