Hilco Global: Asset Smarter
Hilco Global 
Gary C. Epstein
EVO Chief Marketing Officer
gepstein@hilcoglobal.com

Over its 28 year history Hilco Global has transformed itself from what began primarily as a disposition business to today’s broad platform of financial services which include acting as an advisor, an agent, and often a principal, with respect to every asset category on the left-hand side of a balance sheet. Hilco Global has become relevant to virtually every investment-grade company and certainly across the gamut of distressed situations that are out there today. Hilco Global adds real value in helping companies around the world and their lenders and investors evaluate and maximize the value of all of their assets including tangible and intangible, real property and personal property, all items that may exist within its core ongoing businesses, discontinued operations, or orphaned subsidiaries which were relevant before, but may no longer be relevant. Hilco Global has an international team of executives in 11 countries around the world, with nearly 500 direct employees providing extensive solutions through 20 integrated business units.

For more than forty years, AlixPartners has helped businesses around the world respond quickly and decisively to their most critical challenges – circumstances as diverse as urgent performance improvement, accelerated transformation, complex restructuring and risk mitigation.

These are the moments when everything is on the line – a sudden shift in the market, an unexpected performance decline, a time-sensitive deal, a fork-in-the-road decision. But it’s not what we do that makes a difference, it’s how we do it.

Tackling situations when time is of the essence is part of our DNA – so we adopt an action-oriented approach at all times. We work in small, highly qualified teams with specific industry and functional expertise, and we operate at pace, moving quickly from analysis to implementation. We stand shoulder to shoulder with our clients until the job is done, and only measure our success in terms of the results we deliver.

Our approach enables us to help our clients confront and overcome truly future-defining challenges. We partner with you to make the right decisions and take the right actions. And we are right by your side. When it really matters.

Over the past 15 years, SWC has re-defined the landscape of distressed business solutions outside of bankruptcy or legal arenas. Having pioneered a reorganizational path that preserves business value, Second Wind creates a win/win that benefits owners, creditors and jobs as an alternative to bankruptcy. As a strategic partner for direct business investors and intermediaries, Second Wind Consultants specializes in preserving and extracting enterprise value when business debt would otherwise mean a business is untransactable or uncapitalizable. Reorganizations performed via Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code fully resolve distressed business assets of all previous liabilities, while preserving core enterprise value, opportunity and jobs through business re-launch. Second Wind has performed 1000s of Article 9 reorganizations which offer unprecedented value to distressed owners, business investors, intermediaries and creditors alike. Distressed entities are reorganized into new, unencumbered operating entities in 45-60 days, without the inefficiencies, costs and time associated with judicial processes.

The preservation of value afforded by a Second Wind reorganization offers:

  • successful exits for owners without bankruptcy (which by result, incentivizes PEG/purchaser LOIs)
  • maximum recovery value for secured creditors
  • highly attractive entry costs for PEGs /purchasers seeking enterprise value at liquidated asset costs
  • streamlined M&A activity without regard to debt on the balance sheet
