Robert Schwab, Former President, Schwab Sales Restructuring MAX Equipment Rental Principals of Craft worked with the secured creditors to establish a longer term payment plan to reduce the burdensome debt service requirements on the company. The Reorganization Plan reinstated the secured lenders’ claims but under terms that were much more manageable for the company. The unit holders retained 100% ownership. The Company was able to emerge from bankruptcy with improved cash flows and was ultimately sold to a strategic buyer. Financial Restructuring 5
