|The restructuring market has developed dramatically since the recession of the early 1990s. A number of factors have contributed to a trend for increasingly complex workouts, including the sophistication of the financial products that have evolved over the last decade; the diverse nature of providers of debt and equity; and the willingness of financial institutions to see distress as an opportunity for profit and not just a damage limitation exercise. |
This important forthcoming title features contributions by renowned experts in the field including the Blackstone Group, 3-4 South Square, the World Bank and the Pension Protection Fund, among others, and analyses these new tools and the context in which they can be utilised. It explores the commercial agenda that dictates the use of technical procedures such as debt-for-equity swaps and pre-packaged administration sales. The book also examines the ramifications of structured finance and details the workout strategies employed by those who have exposure to those products. Further, the international nature of this area of practice is examined in detail.
