RSM EquiCo Capital Markets Adds New Restructuring Service

COSTA MESA, CA--(Marketwire - May 14, 2008) - Global investment bank RSM EquiCo Capital Markets LLC has added a new practice to its growing list of services: restructuring.

The firm's restructuring experts advise companies with underperforming assets and those experiencing financial distress, working with both debtors and creditors to develop tailored solutions suitable for virtually any financial or operating situation. RSM EquiCo assists middle-market companies in areas such as corporate renewal, turnarounds, balance-sheet restructuring, distressed M&A (including out-of-court transactions and Chapter 11 Section 363 sales) and capital raising.

"Capital market shifts and economic turbulence can challenge even the best run companies," said Jay Sherwood, the senior managing director who oversees the new practice. "Our emphasis is on moving quickly to preserve enterprise value and perhaps even prevent business failure. The exact approach will be unique to each client."

Hector J. Cuellar, president of RSM EquiCo Capital Markets, commented: "We are leveraging the firm's proven capabilities in M&A and capital raising to provide our clients an array of complementary solutions. The restructuring practice is a natural addition to our growing suite of services."
