Ron Turcotte Leaves Aurora to Open New Firm
Focused on Distressed Debt Opportunities

Scottsdale, AZ— Effective December 31st Ron Turcotte, who has been the Managing Partner of Aurora Management Partners Inc. for the past 11 years, has left Aurora to start Cratos Advisors, Inc.
Ron stated that “The entire Aurora team did a lot of great restructuring work over the last eleven years and many of those engagements were focused not only on fixing the business but more importantly, on enhancing recovery for the various stakeholders by cleaning up a bloated and complex capital structure. I’m now going to focus on pursuing these complex distressed debt opportunities and enhancing recovery through creative operational and balance sheet restructuring. Not every distressed company is truly distressed; in many cases through the sale process and in some cases multiple sales transactions, the company gets burdened with a debt and equity structure that it just can’t support”.
Cratos Advisors, Inc. is based in Scottsdale, Arizona and has professional staff throughout the US and Canada that will continue to provide traditional financial and operational restructuring with a heavy focus on distressed debt opportunities that require long-term reorganizations, in many cases with interim C-level management and major balance sheet restructuring.
Cratos and Aurora will have an ongoing relationship and they will continue to fulfill their joint obligations for all current Aurora engagements.
