Recessions - credit crunches - shlfting markets - new technologies - strikes -
fires-environmental issues - product recalls - over-regulation - death and taxes ...
All these events - and many others - can quickly turn and otherwise healthy
business into a "Fallen Angel."
Predictable problems then follow:
· Management's focus is diverted from the business to deal with repeated crises, worried creditors and chronic cash shortages.
· Lenders suspend vital advances and demand scarce cash reserves.
· Vendors require C.O.D. and catch-up payments.
· Customers postpone needed orders.
· Confidence evaporates, morale slips and key employees bolt.
· Long-term profitability and growth are sacrificed for liquidity and near-term survival.
· And a formerly healthy business slips toward bankruptcy and eventual liquidation.

Enough new cash to buy the time needed to fix the basic problems and frequently
Temporary help from seasoned crisis professionals - So management can devote its attention to strategic issues, while the "doctors" treat day-to-day crises.
