CRS Capstone Partners Leads an Ethanol Producer in Corporate Restructuring

Industry:  Ethanol Production and Sales

Challenge:  The Company was facing a period of prolonged negative margins due to rising corn costs stemming from a drought in the Midwestern US and was rapidly running out of cash.

Solution:  Idled the facility, rationalized costs, and conducted a full sale process through a §363 asset sale.

Results:  Successfully sold the asset, which ultimately received funds necessary for retrofitting the facility, thereby improving its efficiency and enabling it to resume operations outside of bankruptcy proceedings.
