WHAT WE DO

-SERVICES-

CAPITAL

To help provide immediate liquidity and critical time for more strategic decisions, Onyx has the ability to deploy significant capital for a single transaction, pre-fund disposition activities, an outright multi-asset purchase across a broad range of asset classes or provide DIP financing. This ability allows us to work flexibly with our clients as both a strategic and financial partner.

DISPOSITION

In order to get the highest recoveries for our clients, Onyx utilizes customized disposition strategies and multi-channel formats ranging from immediate liquidity through outright asset purchase, private treaty / negotiated orderly sales, supply chain redirection, on-site and web-based public auctions, to monetization through discrete channels.

ADVISORY

We work extensively with Attorneys, CRO’s, Financial Advisors, Assignees, Trustees/Receivers and other restructuring professionals to advise them on the best strategy to monetize assets. The Onyx team has over two centuries of experience and expertise in structuring and executing orderly disposition strategies, capital investments, reorganizations, online auctions and valuation projects across the globe.

Valuations

In the distressed space, one often needs a true sense of value to help see the best course ahead. The Onyx team has performed thousands of appraisals and reviewed and advised on countless more. Our team includes the founder of one of the country’s leading technology valuation firms, the CTO of the Global Electronics Services Group for GE Capital, as well as a former Chair of the International Board of Examiners of the American Society of Appraisers.
