Agenda


  • Hypotheticals
  • Restructuring Deb Governed by the Trust Indenture Act
  • Not Just your ABC's: Practical Alternatives to Business Bankruptcy Filing
  • Uniform Commercial Real Estate Receivership Act
Runtime: 1 hour and 14 minutes
Recorded: July 13, 2019

Description

ABCs and state receiverships are not the only chapter 11 alternatives. With even middle-market companies having widely held and tradeable note instruments, the exchange offer provides an out-of-court alternative that, if successful, can provide most of the benefits of a confirmed chapter 11 plan, and if unsuccessful, can still provide the basis for a confirmable prepackaged plan.

The panel will provide an introduction to exchange offers: the goals, mechanics and documents. The panel will also explore the current thinking on the short reach of the Trust Indenture Act in exchange offers after the Second Circuit Court of Appeals’ decision in Marblegate Asset Management vs. Education Management Corp. In addition, the panel will explore opportunities to use strict foreclosure and other consensual, or nonconsensual, workouts, wind-downs and liquidations to maximize value.

This program was recorded as part of ABI's 2019 Northeastern Bankruptcy Conference & Consumer Forum on July 13th, 2019.
