Venue: Deloitte Singapore, Level 20 Training Lab, OUE Downtown 2, Singapore 068809

About the Event

A growing number of companies in Singapore and Southeast Asia are facing earnings pressures in 2020 driven by increasing uncertainty and disruptive market forces. If left unaddressed, this can lead to liquidity stress and potentially to insolvency. Early intervention by turnaround and restructuring experts using informal restructuring techniques, which involves methods outside of statutory and/or court supervised insolvency processes, can help to preserve value and improve stakeholder outcomes.

Join in IPAS lunch and learn session with CPE/CPD points awarded. Light lunch and coffee/tea sponsored by venue host Deloitte.

IPAS member, Matt Becker, a Partner in the Restructuring Services team at Deloitte Singapore, will speak on:

  1. The role of advisers (financial and legal) in informal restructurings;
  2. The internationally accepted best practice principles for informal workouts;
  3. Balancing competing stakeholder interests;
  4. The critical success factors for an informal restructuring;
  5. Informal restructuring tools and techniques;
  6. Illustrative legal considerations in Singapore and elsewhere; and
  7. An illustrative turnaround journey.

This event is complimentary for IPAS members but prior registration is required.
