[Scales] Strategic Management Partners has substantial experience advising corporations and individuals on the strategic and mechanical issues of corporate development and operating management. Our principal has over 30 years experience in P/L Management, Strategic Planning and Repositioning, M&A for Strategic Advantage, Finance, Investing, Raising Funds for individual investments and venture based money funds, Sales/Business Development, Building Selling and Marketing Teams, and Operational Auditing = In Public & Private companies = In healthy and troubled situations. We have managed companies in the bankruptcy process, organized prepackaged plans, and kept clients out of bankruptcy. We have recovered assets totaling more than $85 million for clients.

We encourage avoidance of the bankruptcy process to preserve value and maintain control of the company. While some situations are well suited for the process, others are not. We follow structured assessment guidelines to determine the status of the company quickly. We address the real issues and not the symptoms to help our clients understand what actions are required and which make sense. We have developed short form and detailed methodologies for effective structured analysis. We develop strategies and workout plans to revitalize the company. We also bring capital in select situations or raise it in others. We invite you to discuss how we can be of benefit in your situation.

We believe that there is a set of skills that is critical to running a company effectively, we utilize this philosophy to revitalize companies for our clients. We also believe that it is important to change the style of leadership and management when a crisis or transition is at hand. The styles of leadership are different and call for different strengths. Decision making is critical to the process, it can not be left to those who did not make these decisions before, or to those who made the wrong ones. After reaching stability, another change in the leader or manager is often the right answer as well.

We are experts in the field and have presented testimony on several occasions to help reform the bankruptcy process; For President Clinton's National Economic Group, Bankruptcy Work Group; For the Russian Bankruptcy Law Reform Delegation; and others.

We believe that prevention is a much better strategy than reacting to crisis.   [Scales]
