VALCON 2016: Emerging Valuation Issues in Bankruptcy and Beyond

Four Seasons Las Vegas
14 March 2016 - 16 March 2016
Hosted By: The American Bankruptcy Institute, the Association of Insolvency & Restructuring Advisors (AIRA), and the University of Texas School of Law

VALCON is an annual event that brings together leading professionals and dealmakers in the distressed debt, restructuring, and valuation industry. On day one of this year's conference, NERA Senior Vice President Dr. Faten Sabry will join Hon. Martin Glenn, U.S. Bankruptcy Court (S.D.N.Y.); New York; Michael D. Messersmith, Kaye Scholer LLP; Chicago; and moderator Marc Brown on a panel entitled “Use of Derivatives and Probabilistic Methods in Bankruptcy, Workouts and Insolvency Matters.”

Whether it is warrants for junior creditors or equity incentive options for a new management team, derivatives have long played a role in negotiating restructuring outcomes. However, as capital structures have become more complex and stakeholders in distressed companies more sophisticated, derivatives and advanced analytic techniques are playing a larger role in the world of bankrupt and distressed companies. This panel explores theoretical as well as practical issues associated with derivatives and probabilistic methods in a distressed environment, and draws from real-world examples of their increased use in the world of troubled, underperforming, and revitalized companies.
