Crisis & Recovery Consulting Demand Driven by Local Debt Issues

Kennedy Releases New Intelligence Identifying Opportunity in C&R Services

PETERBOROUGH, NH--(Marketwire - Aug 29, 2011) - According to research from Kennedy Consulting Research & Advisory, significant new demand for Crisis & Recovery Consulting (C&R) is from local, state and sovereign entities faced with myriad debt issues and exiting distressed investments.

"These issues will not be simple to resolve, and it is also not clear how voters and bondholders will react to typical C&R fees for work with these entities," according to Erick Burchfield, Senior Director of Research Management for Kennedy Consulting Research & Advisory. "Still, there is tremendous potential for demand from the public sector going forward."

While the dramatic overall spike in demand for Crisis & Recovery services that occurred during the global economic crisis is all but gone, Kennedy has identified other pockets of opportunity in addition to corporate debt refinancing. Among them are: near-term regulatory and lending changes in small and developing markets; the increased use of prepackaging and shortened bankruptcy durations; and post-downturn "second wave" issues, such as supply chain failures impacting clients who are otherwise well-prepared for adversity.

Crisis & Recovery Consulting Market Forecast is part of Kennedy Consulting Research & Advisory's comprehensive analysis of the financial consulting market. It details the key trends impacting client demand for Crisis and Recovery consulting services, and provides market size and growth estimates across four service segments: debtor crisis resolution, creditor advisory, turnaround advisory, and non-financial crisis services, plus in-depth sizing and forecasts across geographic regions and client industries.
