“Over the past 12 months, our collection agency has experienced a host of atypical business challenges. Within a 90-day period – we lost a major piece of business (approximately 10% of the total revenue) and our recent acquisition was not delivering the benefits we expected. Our CPA firm informed us of a team that they have work with for several years that would be able to assist us through these turbulent times. Accordingly, we contracted with Lakelet Advisory Group. They put together a very detailed strategy and action plan. Step by step though the process – they assisted us in executing this plan…… Now a year later, we have been able to restructure our debt and obtain more capital, jettisoned our acquisition, and are in the midst of joining a joint venture that will double our business opportunities in the next 20 months. Obviously, we extended our agreement with Lakelet Advisory Group with the goals of being SSAE 16 complaint, reduce expenditures by another 5% and organically increase revenues by 7.5% within 7 months.”

“In order to address the challenges from unparalleled currency losses, inability to pacify a dysfunctional board, loss of the corporate president due to compliance issues, our public traded Company sought a member of the LAG for the Board of Directors. Jointly, we feverishly attacked the refocusing of the product offerings and our operations. The commitment became such that in addition to the Board of Directors, the LAG member became the interim COO. Despite our efforts, we could not collectively turnaround the situation. It became necessary to liquidate the Companies. Throughout the process, LAG managed the project internally and expectantly for the numerous stakeholders. In hindsight, we should engaged LAG earlier in the process and have attempted to take the Company private as soon as possible.”
