Overview (Program Summary)

The extended pandemic environment, combined with corporates, private equity firms and investors holding significant capital to deploy, is predicted to lead to a notable increase in distressed investment opportunities for buyers in both debt and equity as well as restructuring and recapitalisation opportunities for businesses.

This webinar hosted by Gilbert + Tobin’s market leading Restructuring + Insolvency and M+A teams will cover:

  • common issues that arise in distressed transactions (including differences with going concern/traditional acquisitions);
  • tips on structuring a competitive bid (debt or equity) for a distressed asset; and
  • tips for restructuring or recapitalising a business via a deed of company arrangement
