Liquidity concerns caused by an over-leveraged balance sheet began to distract management and threaten the Company’s ability to remain competitive.
SSG was retained with the mandate of right-sizing ConRoute’s over-burdened balance sheet. SSG assisted the Company in a financial restructuring effectuated through a management buyout. The transaction closed in May 2004.
