When a company is in the process of planning its bankruptcy exit, discussions on how the company will raise capital to fund administrative and DIP claims (among many others) begin to be heard in the market. Will the company do a bond offering? What about a rights offering? All this will be ...
agreeing to an acquisition without itself committing all the capital required for the acquisition. To do this, the financial sponsor will raise acquisition debt that ultimately looks to the cash flows of the acquisition target itself to make interest and principal payments. Acquisition debt in an LBO is often non-recourse to the financial sponsor and has no claim on other investment managed by the financial sponsor. Therefore, an LBO transaction's financial structure is particularly attractive to a fund's limited partners, allowing them the benefits of leverage but greatly limiting the degree of recourse of that ...

Equity Investment in Distressed Debt and Middle Market Deals ...
The private equity sector has been pursuing a number of options now that the big money deals of previous years have become more difficult. Changes in the economic climate, particularly the disappearance of easy credit, have made big equity buyouts less common. In recent articles, we have discussed how private equity players have sought new international markets and stable investments such as the infrastructure industry. This time around, we'd like to look at other areas of interest to the equity buyout sector. Current trends suggest that equity investors are moving into distressed debt and middle market transactions. ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Distressed Debt Investors Identify Lucrative Opportunities in a Crowded Market
“Opportunities in distressed investing continue to be lucrative, but are now becoming more limited in scope,” comments Conference Director, Alex Simon. “New accounting standards make it easier to hold onto troubled assets, so institutions and banks are retaining distressed assets for longer periods of time on their books, creating a lack of buyout and turnaround opportunities.” The 6th Global Forum on Investing in Distressed Debt will focus on finding opportunities in the current market, including new areas of corporate debt , as well as emerging investments in lodging, ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
The Morning Leverage: A Brewing NY-Connecticut Tax War?
The Securities and Exchange Commission has passed its new pay-to-play rule, and after getting more than 200 comment letters, many of which urged it not to ban placement agents from working with public pensions as it had originally intended, the agency relented. The new rule prohibits fund managers from working with public pensions for two years if they make a political contribution to a government official who could influence that pension’s investment decisions. But it allows investment managers to continue to employ placement agents, so long as they are registered with either the SEC itself or FINRA. The private equity ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Coordinated Issue Paper - Distressed Asset/Debt Tax Shelters
This paper addresses the use of distressed assets (including creditors’ interests in debt) to shift economic losses from a tax indifferent party to a U.S. taxpayer.  A distressed asset/debt (“DAD”) transaction typically involves the use of a limited liability company, taxed as a partnership, to shift losses among partners entering and exiting the partnership.  A foreign party ("FP") owns a distressed asset with a substantial built-in loss.  The foreign party contributes the high-basis, low-value asset to the partnership, which makes no election under I.R.C. Section 754 and thus keeps the high basis in the asset.  The ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics
distressed debt - NYU Stern
Vulture investors - those who buy up distressed debt - have long been a feature of the American investment landscape but have so far had little chance to scavenge for profits in Europe. However, the situation is changing. Sunil Jagtiani reports. If car maker General Motors Ibecomes the world's next great corporate bankruptcy, which some analysts fear is possible following the near- $11bn (£6.34bn) loss the firm posted last year, then it is safe to assume that a crescendo of caterwauling will accompany its slide into turmoil. Most holders of the firm's shares and bonds will bemoan the mistakes that led to disaster, ...

How useful is a law degree in investment management (distressed ...
I'm taking my LSAT in October and am seriously considering going to law school. I realize corporate/securities/bankruptcy law all have some application towards business, but how sought after would I be once I graduate compared to MBA's, CFA's, and finance undergrads from the Ivys? I currently have a few years experience as a research associate and market analytics analyst and my ultimate goal is to work for/start a hedge fund focused on high yield and distressed debt investing. My question is targeted towards money managers and analysts. Thank you. Member since: January 25, 2007 Total points: 61597 ...

First of all, you shouldn't be risking any money you can't afford to lose. It's almost like planning a trip to a casino. Figure out ahead of time how much money you can piss away, and not be negatively effected. Also look at ways you can save money on what you're doing every day anyway. If you can save money, you won;t have to rely on investments. Most people repeat cliches like. "A home is the biggest investment you'll ever make." or "An automobile is the second-largest investment you make." The fact is that neither of them is an INVESTMENT unless it RETURNS MORE THAN IT COST. Obviously, there are many ...
