  1. 1. Secure your high-risk accounts receivable with PUT OPTIONS
  2. 2. executive team: DaVid D. TAwil steven azarbad In the financial world, at the nexus of Put Options and distressed / high-risk companies, ETG Capital is a leading force. Firm principals, David Tawil and Steven Azarbad, bring years of successful corporate turnaround and restructuring experience to every deal. When facing complex bankruptcy and credit matters, clients count on the confidential counsel and creative financial strategies and solutions offered by ETG Capital. ETG Capital offers highly specialized expertise with distressed financial analysis, sales, negotiation and trading. Tawil and Azarbad hail from pre-eminent global investment banks and bankruptcy law practices at top-tier, global law firms. ETG Capital helps clients navigate and negotiate the Put Option process, placing a premium on expediently educating every client and colleague involved in decision-making. We regularly monitor high-risk and volatile situ- ations for our clients, provide frequent updates, and continually re-evaluate and price risk. Fast, nimble and self-sufficient, ETG Capital executes each Put Option without the need for outside counsel or a trader. ETG Capital closes deals well before others even have the ability to finish negotiating, delivering flawless execution time and again.
  3. 3. Among savvy CFOs, corporate treasurers, and credit risk managers— representing the Fortune 50; wholesalers; and, manufacturers from North America to Asia—the names Tawil and Azarbad are virtually synonymous with high-risk and distressed credit. Both gentlemen are routinely invited to speak at credit industry conferences, worldwide, where they offer their Wall Street perspective on industry giants in distress. Here are just two of many accolades: “David has been a great help in reducing my overall risk. The products, solutions, and market intel- ligence he offered were timely and exceptionally appropriate. I have recommended David to several industry friends who have added their appreciation for his help and direction.” - Treasurer, Auto-Parts Manufacturer “Steve is an excellent person to do business with. He was a straightforward negotiator, reliable, and exceeded my expectations in regards to how quickly he was able to complete our transaction. His back- ground in law expedited the process of drafting term sheets and closing the deals. I would definitely do business with Steve again.” - SVP Finance, Major Media Company WHY WE’RE BETTER At ETG Capital, we encourage clients to explore and develop more creative and opportunistic credit solutions. In the new credit- and capital-constrained environ- ment, banks shy away from taking on credit risk. They won’t extend Put Options for any companies other than the largest and most liquid. ETG seeks to push the boundaries of the terms we can provide with our Put Options: • We offer Put Options on customers other institutions won’t touch • We protect receivables of virtually all sizes (odd-lots and fluctuating balances are our specialty) • We cover unique lengths of time (e.g. 9 months, 14 months) ETG Capital is an independent platform, not a bank subsidiary or joint-venture. As an independent firm, ETG Capital offers impartial counsel. You can count on our objective advice when it comes to discussing your most distressed customers. Since we are not affiliated with a big bank, our professionals do not face the issue of client conflicts that regularly come up in large financial institutions. Our conversa- tions with clients are straight-forward and without prejudice.

You have serious concerns that your cus- tomer may file for bankruptcy or liquidate. Your customer’s outstanding accounts receivable balance with your company is significant. You buy ETG’s Pre-Bankruptcy Put Option, to secure your at-risk receivables for a period of time, e.g. 9 months. Your company continues shipping product and collecting payment on outstanding accounts receivables. If your customer files for bankruptcy or begins to liquidate during the period of time for which you purchased protection, ETG will cover 100 percent of your protected accounts receivable.
