Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Valuation Issues: Demystifying Trends, Updates, and COVID-19 Implications
With the ongoing economic turmoil and financial strain brought by the COVID-19 outbreak, valuation issues in Chapter 11 bankruptcy cases are expected to become more complex and challenging for companies. Because valuation plays an integral aspect in determining a Chapter 11 bankruptcy case, companies seeking reorganization during these economically challenging times must be aware of the potential issues that may arise before or during the process. Additionally, they must be in the know of the ever-changing legal revamps of a Chapter 11 bankruptcy valuation process to successfully address any potential or ongoing petition.
In this LIVE Webcast, chartered financial analysts Julia Zhu (The Brattle Group) and Travis Keath (VALUE Incorporated), will provide the audience with an in-depth analysis of the recent issues in Chapter 11 bankruptcy valuation. Speakers will discuss trends, updates, and COVID-19 implications. They will also outline the leading practices to help companies better manage possible valuation issues.
