Debtwire’s Investors Summit will once again return to New York on April 25, 2018. This event will bring together the fixed income community’s leading investors and experts for discussions on distressed debt and restructuring opportunities.
"Secular change has roiled business models across a host of sectors, helping to feed the current cycle of distress.
Most visibly, the struggle of bricks-and-mortar retailers to adapt to online shopping trends shows no signs of slowing, with six US-based retail chains filing for Chapter 11 protection during the first quarter of 2018 alone, according to Debtwire data. New technologies are also disrupting legacy players in the software space given the transition to cloud platforms.
Meanwhile, oil prices hover in the USD 60 per barrel area, still well below the highs that many independent operators based their business models around. Though a wave of oil producer bankruptcies over the last two years helped operators right-size balance sheets for the new reality, oil price volatility still threatens to wreak havoc on the fragile industry recovery.
Against this backdrop, join us for wide-ranging discussions on strategies for investing in the current cycle, a deep dive into pinpointing retail recoveries, and more."
