Houlihan Lokey is the No. 1 global investment banking restructuring advisor. With nearly 150 professionals worldwide, our team responds quickly in complicated situations. Every assignment is staffed with professionals who facilitate prompt completion of due diligence and analysis. In 2011, we were awarded Global Restructuring Adviser of the Year by International Financing Review and we were also recognised as EuroWeek’s Best Loan Restructuring Adviser.
We advised in many of the largest, most complex distressed deals over the past decade, including numerous cross-border transactions in Europe. During this period we advised on almost 900 restructuring transactions with aggregate debt claims in excess of $1.5 trillion, including four of the five largest of all time: Lehman Brothers, WorldCom, General Motors and CIT Group.
A listing of our services includes:
•Restructuring existing debt and equity
•Representing buyers and sellers of distressed companies, divisions and assets
•Bulk sales of assets
•Sales of performing and nonperforming loans
•Business and securities valuation
•Structuring and negotiation of plans of reorganisation

I believe that this will better the company's positioning with the 'new deal' with Roust Trading; however, I hope this third-party doesn't work too hard for CEDC and scare off a debt deal.
