Special Situations

Focuses on Event Driven, Stressed, Complex Situations and Distressed Debt Credit opportunities.


We provide capital to financially constrained companies.

We provide financing solutions to companies with limited access to capital, including non-rated, smaller and middle-market companies, businesses with complex business models and entities with a high level of intrinsic value relative to hard assets or cash flow.


We access significant opportunities by avoiding cookie-cutter investment approaches

We believe in the power of custom-made solutions in order to maximize our investors’ returns.

Our Special Situations experts offer financing to operationally sound, financially distressed companies in need of capital to grow or repair their businesses.

We provide constructive answers for a wealth of different situations a company may be experiencing, from spinoffs, tender offers, mergers and acquisitions, distress, litigation, restructurings, capital structure dislocations, or simply a level of complexity the market does not understand.


Over 30 Years Consistently Obtaining High Returns Through Special Situations Investments

Our creative and flexible approach allows us to provide clients with a variety of structures tailored to the specific needs of unique situations. In addition, our capacity to act quickly and creatively when faced with event-driven investment opportunities across a diverse range of industries allows us to tap into opportunities with a unique positioning within the market.

Finally, the deep and broad expertise of our team provides us with the necessary tools to execute our investment strategy successfully. With this experience, Gala can enter into industries searching for above-average returns on investments that many other firms are unable to predict.

This has led us to develop an unparalleled track record when dealing with mid-market Special Situations within Spain.

An Investment Path for a Broad Range of Industries Across All Market Conditions

Special Situations Investing does not require a distressed macro environment to be successful, relying instead on “situational” distress that can be uncovered in any industry, sector or individual company at any point in the economic cycle. We believe in the power of such operations regardless of external market conditions and are thus able to offer our investors high-return opportunities even in difficult market situations.
