A North Wales based family operation that at the time of referral had had all further lending frozen and was awaiting a Grant Thornton report to the Bank, prior to being referred to Special Situations. Not waiting for the Grant Thornton report, which we disagreed with in any event, Global Advisory Group set about raising cash quickly to both reduce creditors and provide working capital. Having successfully disposed of one park, plus two cottages and an unwanted piece of land, matters were stabilized and funds released to complete the development of a luxury lodge park and a High end holiday cottage.

The company is now trading profitably, all creditors have been paid and negotiations are under way to expand into a fifth park. All current bank loans are now being reduced annually and the group will be debt free in a maximum of fifteen years.

The above company has not been named, due to client confidentiality.
