Mounting consumer debt has been one of the glaring reasons for the recent economic slowdown. Organizations are not safe and suffer from debt overhang—a situation where in an organization that has existing debt so great that it cannot easily borrow more money. This remains a serious issue across industries and one that is often underreported. Quite understandably, unmanageable debt hampers organizational growth in the long run. In such a situation, companies need to rely on professional debt management companies that can help them wade through their debt pileups and keep expenses under control. Sam Management Services Pvt.
