Chair’s welcoming remarks
Keynote Presentation: Are macroeconomics turning?
For the restructuring market macroeconomic storm clouds can be a blessing not a curse. How will CEE economies perform over the next twelve months, and will that translate into new restructuring opportunities?
Presentation: Regulation round up
This whistle-stop tour across the Europe regions examines recent changes in bankruptcy and restructuring regulations country by country, and then asks what exactly those changes will mean for distressed investors
Panel: What weaker covenants will mean for distressed situations
Underwriting standards have been deteriorating for debt investors across the world, and the CEE region is no exception. What terms have changed in CEE deals over the last few years? How will these changes affect the supply and timing of future restructurings? What will the ultimate impact be on recovery rates and value creation for new money?
Fireside Chat: Agrokor – the story isn’t over yet
Don’t throw away your Agrokor notes just yet, as everyone’s favourite distressed name is back in the news as the company seeks to refinance its rescue package. In the fireside chat Debtwire sits down with two of the main parties involved in the original situation to discuss the future for Agrokor, and what lessons can be learned for similar situations in the future
Presentation: Innovative Approaches to Debt Restructuring in CEE
Panel: Turkey – the hottest opportunity?
An economic crisis and volatile bond markets have made Turkey a hot topic for international investors. What restructuring opportunities are there, and what legal and jurisdictional traps lie in wait for unwary investors?
Panel: Ukraine – case closed?
Most of the main Ukrainian corporates that were forced to restructure their debt following the crisis have now completed their restructuring transactions. What were the biggest obstacles to securing a deal with creditors, and what lessons can other jurisdictions that haven’t developed a restructuring market learn from Ukraine?
Panel: Restructuring Project Finance debt
A number of CEE jurisdictions have retroactively changed their renewable energy programmes, making projects that borrowed project finance debt unsustainable and forcing restructurings. But this new opportunity also has complicated challenges around enforceability and government action. Added to that many of the big creditors are Development Finance Institutions, which may take a very different approach to restructuring negotiations. Should investors dive in, or keep away?
Panel: Retail, a problem sector everywhere
Whichever country or region you focus on retail names are in trouble as disruptive technology drives ever greater distress. Are there any cultural or technical differences for CEE retail names? What pipeline can we expect? And with so many recent retail restructurings ending in contentious liquidations is this sector still a good target for investors?
