Turnaround and Restructuring Services

Access the right support during hard times. 

Five years ago, Amplēo merged with Guidepoint Management, a regional turnaround and financial restructuring firm.  Combined under a unified brand, Amplēo is now the premier turnaround and restructuring firm in the Western United States.

Amplēo’s team of highly skilled turnaround consultants help distressed businesses recover.  Amplēo works with, or in place of existing management in urgent and high-impact situations.

Amplēo is skilled along the entire insolvency continuum including turnaround management, out-of-court restructurings, receiverships, and bankruptcy court proceedings.  We represent both debtors and creditors,  and often act as court-appointed fiduciaries.

Our staff includes several Certified Turnaround Professionals (CTP) and Certified Insolvency and Restructuring Advisors (CIRA).  We are often retained by business owners, boards of directors, and trustees on the advice of creditors or attorneys.  In some cases, our retention is ordered by a court of law.

 

FOR BUSINESS OWNERS

Sometimes, companies face a liquidity or solvency crisis. If your business is failing, our experienced consultants will guide you through the process of restructuring your debt and analyzing and making crucial decisions to get your business back on track.

Our three-step approach includes:

  • Stabilizing to help calm creditors
  • Preparing a turnaround or recovery plan tailored to your company’s needs
  • Communicating and implementing the plan

As innovative problem solvers, we implement sustainable improvements in operations, sales, expense control and management practices.  We create measurement tools to help ensure long-term success.

Working with competent legal counsel, we will advise your business regarding the bankruptcy code, receivership statutes, and other available options. Let us show you how we can help save your business.
