Rochelle Park, NJ, March 14, 2017 – The DAK Group is serving as the financial advisor to the UCC in the Chapter 11 bankruptcy case.  As reported by Reuters, “just weeks after warning it risked liquidation without a speedy auction, Violin Memory Inc. said . . . its sale effort has led to a restructuring deal with an affiliate of George Soros’ Quantum Partners” for a sales price of $15 million.

Karol states: “My goal is to conclude a successful Chapter 11 sale process with an efficient wind-down that distributes the proceeds swiftly to the creditors”.

Violin Memory is a developer and supplier of differentiated flash-based data storage systems that service the high-speed applications and complex network infrastructures of sophisticated world-wide enterprises.
