Wharton Restructuring and Distressed Investing Conference

Over the past few years, Distressed Debt Investing has attended the annual Wharton Restructuring and Distressed Investing Conference (here our notes from last year: Notes from the 2012 Wharton Restructuring Conference). The conference is always full of incredible insight (and networking opportunities) for distressed debt and restructuring professionals. This year's keynote speakers is one of the best lists I've seen in some time:

  • Golden Tree's Managing Partner Steve Tananbaum
  • CEO of SunCoke (high yield issuer) and former CEO of GM Frederick Henderson
  • Euro distressed guru Lee Buchheit, Partner at Cleary Gottlieb
  • No introduction needed: Ed Altman - the dean of distress.
The title of this year's conference "Health of Nations - Distress, Recovery or Revival?" As all of us are aware the international opportunity for distress is gradually picking up - so many people talk about Europe, but I know a number of funds that are starting to build out Asian offices as well. The panelists are also incredible. Representative from these funds, just to name a few:
  • Centerbridge
  • Apollo
  • Knighthead
  • Oaktree
  • MatlinPatterson
  • Versa
What I've always liked about this conference is  both the legal restructuring panel as well as the case study. This year the case study is on AMF Bowling with panelists from McKinsey, Stroock, Kirkland, and Miller Buckfire weighing in on "the various strategic and financial perspectives of the key participants including the company's financial and legal advisors as well as advisors from the 1st lien lenders."

Distressed Debt Investing will be there as a Media Sponsor. We truly hope to see you there.
