How Hilco Performance Solutions’ Financial Modeling and Pre-Deal Diligence Helped Drive a Successful Transaction for a Truck Leasing and Sales Business
In 2019, an over-supply of Class 8 trucks flooded the market resulting in a significant downturn in the freight industry. 19th Capital’s active lease percentage dropped drastically, and profitability plummeted.
