James Dondero is dedicated to Highland’s Capital and all of the ways that the company can see success over the next few years. He has used his expertise in the credit market to make decisions for Highland’s that will be able to lead them into the most successful position in the coming years. Because of the success that James Dondero has and the things that he knows how to do on the credit market, he is the best asset that Highland’s Capital has. He is what will make the company the most successful that it has ever been in the life of the company.
Highland’s Capital has not always been successful and has actually seen some failures more recently. Jim points out that the company actually had a reduction of assets in the third quarter of 2015. These assets were reduced and diminished by around 1 billion dollars and this shows that the company was not doing great. While their assets were going down, the percentages of the credit market companies that Highland’s works with were going up.
The reduction of assets could be due to the fact that James Dondero was selling off some of the assets. He sold the assets because they were not profitable and because they were not working for the company. He was sure to sell these for the right amount and to the right other companies. This gave him the edge that he needed to be able to make Highland’s more successful and to ensure that it was going to be a better business in the coming years. He was setting the company up for some of the most successful times.
Since Jamse has worked with Highland’s Capital, he has helped the company immensely. Even during the times where he made decisions that actually reduced the assets, like the current time period, he was still working toward the overall success of the company. James saw the opportunity in selling off some of the assets, took advantage of it, and gave it away to businesses that needed it. By doing this, he is giving Highland’s a chance to be more successful in the years that are coming up for the company.
