CHICAGO, April 11, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Kugman Partners is the winner of a 2017 Turnaround Atlas Award for its leadership role in the restructuring and Reorganization of Cardiac Science Corporation.

Brent Kugman, CEO of Kugman Partners, accepted the coveted Corporate Turnaround of the Year Award for Mid-Market Segment 100-250 Million USD at the Ninth Annual Restructuring and Distressed Investing Agenda and Turnaround Atlas Awards, held in New York City on April 4th.

“Receiving this prestigious industry award for our work with Cardiac Science Corporation is an honor,” said Brent Kugman. “It recognizes the precise strategy and finesse we first deployed when removing the old management team, and our subsequent operational abilities.” Mr. Kugman continued, “We were able to stabilize operations and oversee a public sale process that substantiated the value of the company and provided a true fresh start.”

The Turnaround Atlas Award validates the efficacy of Brent’s extensive network of influence within the financial, business, and legal communities.
