"Steve helped my former company clean up its capital structure. We had a very complicated (and confusing capital structure) due to various securities that were issued when my former company came out of bankruptcy. Steve managed a number of offerings and redemptions to get this company into position to take the next steps as it continued its emergence from bankruptcy."
