GCG’s solicitation team provides expertise in all aspects of solicitation and balloting. In particular, GCG has expertise in facilitating communications with holders of publicly traded securities and can assist in developing innovative solicitation procedures that meet the needs of any matter. The solicitation team identifies the beneficial owners of securities and provides them with timely notice. In addition, our team advises on balloting elections, rights offerings and subscription procedures. We tabulate ballots and certify the results, which are backed by our highly trained quality assurance department. Moreover, GCG’s software engineers have developed proprietary programs, unique in this industry, that allow our clients to view voting results on a rolling basis, in real-time.
Our ability to handle solicitations for cases of all sizes and complexities has received praise from both bankruptcy practitioners and courts presiding over the cases we administer. If required, we can testify as to our adherence to the voting procedures and voting results.
"I am satisfied that the solicitation procedures have been very carefully followed and certainly the affidavit makes that clear and the painstaking manner in which those responsibilities were carried out is impressive."
The Honorable Kevin Gross
Bankruptcy Judge for the District of Delaware, in reference to GCG's solicitation work on the R.H. Donnelly Corporation Case (from the confirmation hearing transcript).
"I have listened to Mr. Stein's testimony. I am familiar with this firm. And I am confident that it [the solicitation] was conducted appropriately."
The Honorable Brendan L. Shannon
Bankruptcy Judge for the District of Delaware, in reference to GCG's solicitation work on the Accuride Corporation Case (from the confirmation hearing transcript)
"GCG's performance in connection with the Accuride solicitation was outstanding. GCG's attention to detail, professionalism and well-designed procedures were all critical to thwarting a challenge to the Plan. And GCG's testimony at the hearing demonstrated an expert's grasp of the subject matter, especially regarding solicitation of holders of publicly traded securities. I would not hesitate to hire them again and highly recommend them."
