Webinar – COVID 19 Pandemic Brings Distressed Investment Opportunities

About this event

Assets of financially-distressed companies and debt that is trading well below par often present appealing investment opportunities for sophisticated buyers. The current COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting market dislocations have created a perfect storm for distressed opportunities.  A number of private equity funds and hedge funds are currently focusing on such opportunities.  However, the acquisition of the assets or debt of a distressed company often raises a host of financial and legal risks that do not ordinarily arise when the target is financially sound.

This webinar, will address a number of issues that opportunistic market participants must consider:

  • business and legal advantages and disadvantages of different methods of acquiring distressed company assets and debt, as well as the underlying valuation issues,
  • section 363 bankruptcy and chapter 11 plan sales,
  • debt-to-equity conversions,
  • “loan to own” investment strategies, and
  • Foreclosures.
