Los Angeles, California- Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Consultants Capital Restructure Group announced today they have negotiated a $5M debt restructure and $300,000 funding to complete construction on a 10,500 square foot commercial real estate property in Manhattan Beach, CA. The debt restructure was accomplished through a negotiated settlement that enabled the property owner to avoid filing for chapter 11.
The projects’ construction loan came due and the bank called the loan and threatened to record a notice of default and foreclose on the property when Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Consultant Capital Restructure Group was contacted and retained as a pre-bankruptcy consultant to negotiate with the bank and to pre-package a chapter 11 in the event the negotiations did not succeed.
Capital Restructure Group informed the bank that through a chapter 11 bankruptcy plan it was preparing, the property owner could file chapter 11 bankruptcy, restructure the banks debt over the banks objection, and fund the $300,000 needed to finish the project by subordinating the banks debt to the new loan. The bank acquiesced, funded the $300,000 to finish the project and extended the loan for 18 months. Capital Restructure Group is a Bankruptcy Consultancy firm consisting of businessmen whose focus is the restructure of corporate and real estate debt both in and out of chapter 11.
The Capital Restructure Group principals have unique expertise in the complexities of modifying and restructuring corporate and real estate debt and have a client list of real estate developers and business owners nationwide. The focus of the Company is to take the business issues that make up a chapter 11 bankruptcy or a chapter 11 pre-negotiation out of the hands of the lawyers, and to return the business issues to the businessmen where they belong.
We are businessmen who think and act like businessmen, the only difference between us and you is we have strategized in and written over 300 bankruptcy reorganization plans and moreover, as principals have successfully restructured our own businesses and real estate projects through chapter 11: We understand every single facet of the process, and will direct the strategy for you, reduce the costs, and not let the lawyers run your life or ruin it.
A properly structured Bankruptcy or the mere threat of properly structured bankruptcy is a potent negotiating strategy that enables real estate investors and business owners to negotiate from a position of strength to otherwise hostile lenders and financial institutions. A properly structured chapter 11 bankruptcy plan or pre-negotiation makes you the 800 pound gorilla in the room and forces your lenders to deal with you honestly because we successfully move the leverage to your side of the table.
Most if not all business owners and commercial real estate investors would never have their attorney locate their business opportunity or real estate investment for them, much less analyze its return for them, negotiate its acquisition for them or obtain financing for them. Yet in many instances those same business owners and property owners find themselves turning the keys to their businesses and real estate portfolios over to lawyers who are ill equipped to run a business or to restructure debt or to strategize a chapter 11.
Allowing your lawyer to run a chapter 11 bankruptcy or a chapter 11 bankruptcy pre-negotiation is an unsettling feeling where you’ve lost control. It’s as if you are having an out of body experience and looking down at yourself as you do something that all the while you know you shouldn’t do but are doing it anyway because you feel you have no choice.
You do have a choice: Capital Restructure Group puts an end to the attorney-run process gone amuck. We quarterback the strategy of the negotiations both in and out of chapter 11 bankruptcy as businessmen for businessmen and defang the lawyers and normalize the whole process for you.
William Brown of Capital Restructure Group said, “Businessmen and real estate investors should call us. We will save them time, money, and get them back in control of their future, so they can do what they do best and leave the lawyers, the bankers and the courtroom strategies to us.”
