Distressed Asset Services
The current dynamics in the capital markets and
the economic downturn have combined to create extraordinarily challenging conditions for lenders and investors.
Lenders and investors require partners and service providers with the experience, capabilities, platform, and knowledge to successfully navigate an extraordinarily complex array of issues. Balance sheets, capital ratios, operating reserves, and long-standing relationships are strained from the difficulties of determining current asset values, regulatory scrutiny and mandates, replacing existing financing, enhancing collateral, generating liquidity, maintaining the physical integrity of assets, selling assets, and capturing market share in a tenant’s market.
For lenders, resources devoted to taking back properties, managing, leasing, and disposing of them detracts from the primary mission of making loans and serving customers. Kidder Mathews understands the importance of recovering maximum value from those assets, even though they may vary widely in type, quality and market area. The firm is equipped to assist our lender clients from the time a loan arrives on the “watch list” through foreclosure and disposition.
For investors, the focus is on retaining existing tenants and capturing additional market share, and the critical balance of maximizing cash flow while maintaining the asset. Kidder Mathews’ professionals thoroughly understand the relationship of revenue, expenses and asset value, and can develop and implement a business plan for the property that integrates market knowledge with generating transactions and capturing the highest value for each dollar of expense.
