How Investors Acquire Enterprise Value at Asset Cost

Alex Mazer of Big Shoulders Capital demonstrates how investors can acquire the full enterprise value of a going concern at the cost of the assets.

The Article 9 strategic short sale of business assets extracts business value from previously distressed situations, as all subordinate liens and liabilities are removed in the asset sale transaction.

Because the asset purchaser is inheriting both the tangible and intangible assets of the previous business free and clear of all legacy liability, the transaction offers the investor the opportunity to acquire full operational value at asset cost, while enjoying essentially full securitization in the asset base.
