Debt Restructuring and Indenture Amendment: Practical Tips and Strategies in Evaluating Substantive & Technical Amendments
Recording Available: Thursday, December 10, 2020
For distressed businesses, debt restructuring is the most practical option to solve financial woes without filing for bankruptcy. However, out-of-court restructuring of public debt presents unique complexities brought about by the Trust Indenture Act (TIA). Under the TIA, bond issuers are prohibited to amend indentures and intercreditor agreements without the bondholders’ approval. It also serves as debtholders’ tool in challenging restructurings outside bankruptcy. Thus, practitioners should be well versed in navigating the current and emerging issues to avoid potential risks and pitfalls.
In a LIVE Webcast, a panel of thought leaders and practitioners assembled by The Knowledge Group will discuss the significant and latest issues surrounding debt restructuring and indenture amendments. Speakers will analyze the use of TIA in restricting issuers’ ability to restructure public debt outside of a bankruptcy proceeding. They will also provide effective strategies on how to evaluate substantive & technical amendments.
Key topics include:
- Intersection of TIA and Bankruptcy Law
- Potential Risks and Pitfalls
- Essentials of a Successful Out-of-Court Debt Restructuring
- A Review of Notable Court Rulings
- Effective Tips and Strategies
