We want to help companies recover from major negative financial events. When that’s not possible, we help to maximize recoveries for all stakeholders.
Our Philosophy Is Straightforward
We draw on our technical skills and real world experience to help our clients manage through challenging processes and complex risks. We do this with open and direct communication and the highest level of professionalism and integrity.
Our Process Is Pragmatic
It is an unfortunate reality that some middle market businesses will experience events that result in negative financial consequences. These could include the loss of a major customer, an operational issue, a problem with a supplier or even a major lawsuit. Depending on the severity of the issue, it could have a significant impact on liquidity, banking relationships, or even a company's survival. During these times, customer and vendor communication is critical - and bank lines need to be kept open - all while a plan to fix the problems is developed, implemented, and monitored...
We formed Calderone & Light, LLC to help middle market companies facing complex, extraordinary financial situations. We are a business advisory and litigation support consulting firm that brings together years of consulting, accounting, finance, operations and banking experience. Our professionals possess the special skills and experience for these situations that are not common in most middle market management teams. Our team has worked successfully with hundreds of companies across North America in a wide variety of industries to address these types of situations. Our experience can help.
While every situation is unique, each requires the basic steps of assessment, prioritization, plan development, implementation and monitoring. Our communication is direct about the severity and reality of the situation. We then draw on our industry and practical experience of what works and what doesn't to develop a plan. Whether it is determining the value of a business (certified valuation experts), dealing with a bank (deep experience managing a loan workout team) or investigating fraud (certified fraud examiners), our team can develop creative solutions that allow clients to address difficult situations. Once we develop, identify and assess the risks of a particular strategy, we assist in implementing, monitoring and adjusting it as appropriate.
Facing these challenges is difficult because they are not a part of everyday business. Facing them alone only increases the pressure and probability of failure. The professionals at Calderone & Light, LLC have experience in dealing with customers, creditors, bankers and other stakeholders during distressed situations. Our technical skills uniquely qualify us to assess the issues at hand and develop customized strategic responses. We are here to help.
