Overview

Although most businesses in the United States have remained relatively stable in the current economic environment, there are always instances when highly leveraged companies experience financial trouble and even bankruptcy. When faced with such situations, Workouts & Turnarounds II provides company managers, workout professionals, and other stakeholders with guidance and insights into all facets of corporate restructuring. Workouts & Turnarounds II gives practical advice and proven methodologies on the key issues involved in workouts and turnarounds from the leading authorities in the field of corporate restructuring and bankruptcy consulting. Providing proven methods for deciding the likelihood of a turnaround in a distressed company, this comprehensive reference identifies key factors your company needs to consider in order to make the decision to restructure, divest, or liquidate. In addition, you'll find valuable insights on:

* Legal and practical considerations of international restructuring

* Methods for analyzing company trends to determine the likelihood of a pending bankruptcy

* Industry perspectives and issues related to both in-court and out-of-court restructuring

* Helpful techniques for managing distressed situations from the perspective of the company and its creditor constituencies

* Evaluating underlying trends in the high-yield and equity markets

By analyzing case studies of turnarounds and bankruptcies, Workouts & Turnarounds II arms you with an overview of corporate restructuring from the strategic perspective of the debtor and secured or unsecured creditors. It provides insights as to how to prepare for bankruptcy, ways to manage your professionals, and what to expect from them throughout the restructuring process. Corporate leaders and middle-level managers need to understand the potential implications of having an underperforming division or a few downtrending quarters. Workouts & Turnarounds II provides corporate leaders with effective techniques and troubleshooting strategies to maximize shareholder value. This book is a must-have guide for companies considering a debt restructuring or seeking to perform a self-diagnosis to address the early warnings of underperformance which could lead to a potential failure.
