    For distressed businesses, debt restructuring is the most practical option to solve financial woes without filing for bankruptcy. However, out-of-court restructuring of debt presents unique complexities, including in the case of public debt securities, those brought about by the Trust Indenture Act (TIA) and in the case of secured loans, navigating amendment and intercreditor provisions in loan documentation.

    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, securities practitioners should be well versed in navigating the current and emerging issues to avoid potential risks and pitfalls.

    In loan documentation, provisions both within the credit agreement and any related collateral or intercreditor agreements provide for potential complexity when navigating restructurings outside bankruptcy.

    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 and various loan provisions that must be considered when restructuring 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
    • Voting, Intercreditor and Bankruptcy Law Considerations in Loan Documentation
    • Potential Risks and Pitfalls
    • Essentials of a Successful Out-of-Court Debt Restructuring
    • A Review of Notable Court Rulings
    • Effective Tips and Strategies
