On this coming Thanksgiving, I am “thankful for and believe in”

  1. The love and health of my family
  2. The support of our friends and family during a challenging 2022 health year
  3. The “integrity of my name”
  4. Having “HOPE for the Future”

I was speaking to a NYC friend over the weekend and we reminisced that we are “thankful” for growing up in The Bronx and Queens in the 50’s and early 60’s.

During this period, we learned and lived that family was your friends, neighbors, school friends and immediate family.

We discussed that we grew up in an environment where the above were from all nationalities, religions and creeds.  Our friends and neighbors were Catholic, Irish, Italian, Puerto Rican, Guatamalian, Greek, Black, Jewish and Muslim.  It did not matter about race or religion, it mattered that we were all in a melting pot of lower and middle class families.  We celebrated all or most ot the religious and social holidays.  We ate food from our neighbors different cultures and we supported each other.  A different time and place of life.

The fathers and mothers of my generation of “baby boomers” worked hard, had second jobs and shared with the neighborhood.

During this Thanksgiving, as said above, “I have HOPE for the Future”, because we have to.  Today we are split in left, right, middle and the extremes.  It would be nice for people to communicate, listen to each other’s point of views, accept people for who they are and what they believe.

We are a nation of diverse cultures, however we are “ONE NATION UNDER GOD”.

With respect for a safe, healthy and enjoyable Thanksgiving.

Terminating/Restructuring Prohibitive Real Estate, License, Payables & Contingent Liabilities

Gerbsman Partners has been involved with numerous national and international equity sponsors, senior/junior lenders, investment banks and equipment lessors in the restructuring or termination of various balance sheet issues for their technology, life science, medical device, cyber security, solar and cleantech portfolio companies. 

These companies were not necessarily in crisis, but had cash (in some cases significant cash reserves) and/or investor groups that were about to provide additional funding. In order to stabilize their Go-Forward-Plan and maximize cash resources for future growth, there were specific needs to address Balance Sheet and Contingent Liability issues as soon as possible. 

Some of these areas where Gerbsman Partners has assisted, these companies have been in the process of termination, restructuring and/or reduction of:

Prohibitive Executory Real Estate Leases, Computer and Hardware-related Leases and Senior/Sub-debt Obligations

            Gerbsman Partners was the “innovator” in creating strategies to terminate or restructure prohibitive real estate leases and senior and sub-debt obligations.  To date, we have terminated or restructured $810 million of such obligations for private and public companies, and which has allowed them to return to financial viability. 

Accounts/Trade Payable Obligations

            Companies in a crisis, turnaround or restructuring situation typically have account and trade payable obligations that become prohibitive for the viability of the company on a go-forward-basis. Gerbsman Partners has successfully negotiated mutually beneficial restructurings that allowed all parties to maximize value based on the reality or practicality of the situation.

Software and Technology-related Licenses

            As per the above, software and technology-related licenses need to be restructured/terminated in order for additional capital to be invested in restructured companies. Gerbsman Partners has a significant, successful track record in these areas.

As we begin Veterans Day/Week 2022, we say “Thank You” to the men and woman of our armed services and suggest that it is time for all to “step up” and find ways to support our Veterans.  To often we say “thank you for your service” and then do nothing more.  Please think about supporting various Veterans groups with donations, food, clothing and moral support.  They have “Earned” it and we “Owe” it to them.

In the late summer of 1967, I was on my way back to Basic Training at Fort Dix, N.J. I was in New York City and an older couple came up to me and said “Thank You” for serving and then gave me $ 20 to enjoy a dinner on them. The gentleman said he served in the Korean War and understands and appreciates what men and woman in uniform go through. I said thank you, enjoyed a great dinner and to this day, remember their kind gesture.

On this Veterans Day/Week, our family will support the Special Forces Wounded Warriors program and will provide moral support and friendship to Veterans. On 11/11/22, I will also continue to remember that couple and honor them by buying dinner for soldiers in uniform. I will ask them to do the same thing, 5, 10, 20 and 40 years later.

May God Bless our troops and provide our leaders with the courage and strength to do what is Right and what is Just.

Please always remember – FREEDOM IS NOT FREE and Democracy means respecting all sides and opinions.

What are YOU doing to HELP?

With “HONOR AND RESPECT” – Steve Gerbsman
