Special Situations M&A

Extensive Experience Helping Distressed Companies Preserve Their Businesses


Most businesses find themselves in problematic situations at one point or another. Some of these challenges are tougher than others and lead to a flurry of questions:

  • What happens if we have to declare bankruptcy?
  • Is new financing an option or available for our business?
  • Will we need to find a buyer?
  • How do we survive long enough to find new money?
  • How do we satisfy creditors and maximize recovery for everyone?
  • How can we preserve jobs and the founder’s legacy?
  • What about my personal guarantees?

None of these are easy questions to answer but having the right partner on your side will get you to the best and most effective resolution. In the most trying times SC&H Capital’s Special Situations team partners with businesses in the most trying times to provide indispensable insights and a proven process that produces a path forward quickly.
