Turnaround experts will discuss the effect of the financial crisis on pan-European insolvency and restructuring practices during the next installment of the Turnaround Management Association’s Webinar Series.
"European Trends: European Insolvency Reform Update" will be held via teleconference from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. (EDT) on Tuesday, May 12, 2009.
Nearly 15 percent of about 800 high-risk companies in Europe could default this year as heavy debt loads and tighter credit take their toll, according to Standard & Poor’s. This webinar will update listeners on insolvency practices that vary across Europe and tend to be more complicated than the Chapter 11 bankruptcy-court protection process in the U.S. Panelists will discuss how struggling companies can retool given nationalization in the banking and private sector and a coordinated, multi-country plan to fight the economic crisis.
