Nola Capital Corporation
Distressed capital is a reasonable, prudent from of debt financing and/or equity investment based largely on the
liquidation value of accounts receivable, inventory and fixed assets rather than cash flow and profitability. We have
38 years of experience in this arena. We understand that many distressed situations are not the fault of the
Terms are different than in conventional financing because of the higher risks and shorter duration of the loan or
investment. Most distressed capital is intended to be in place for only a few months to a few years. It is not
uncommon for distressed lenders and investors to become involved in the operation or oversight of a client until
certain milestones are reached in the improvement of its financial situation. After the client's situation has been
stabilized, it is normal for the distressed capital to then be taken out when the company is recapitalized with
long term, stable funding in order to continue normal operations.
Operating history, previous profitability, industry trends and other criteria are carefully analyzed. Financial projections
and an analysis of a project’s balance sheet are also critical. Reputable, reliable valuations of all assets is a key
component of distressed funding.
A large number of distressed situations have recently been created in the energy, mining and real estate sectors.
Erratic commodity prices and a slowing economy are creating extreme hardships and we work with companies that
need to be rejuvenated and resurrected with fresh injections of equity and/or more livable debt facilities.
