Six Months on from Talbot Hughes McKillop’s MBO

on .

In the six months since Talbot Hughes McKillop (THM) secured its independence, the turbulent economic environment has continued to escalate and even quality businesses are beginning to suffer from the combined impact of recessionary pressures and over-leveraged capital structures.

Default rates are predicted to increase from 0.6% (2007) to over 13.5% in 2009. Covenant and cash flow issues are forcing businesses to enter into negotiations with cash constrained lenders. Getting deals done has become tougher and is often taking longer.
