Value Recovery Through Restructuring

Value Recovery Through Restructuring

Dan Tamkin

Chief Technology Officer

Restructuring and reorganization are two different things. However, in some cases, if you don’t do the former, you may have to succumb to the latter (reorganization) through bankruptcy. If your business is stagnant, showing little or no signs of growth with no obvious way forward, restructuring may be just what the doctor ordered. Dan Tamkin is the managing director at Resurgent Ventures, as well as the chief technology officer at Transdev, with a depth of experience as a corporate developer and venture capitalist. Dan returns for his second visit on “Deal Talk.” On this visit, he talks about what restructuring really is and how it can help to revitalize a company looking to heighten its value.
