The accompanying slides are available to view for free by clicking the “On Demand” button below.

Eddie Lampert bought Kmart out of bankruptcy.  W.L. Ross made a fortune many times over buying steel and other companies out of bankruptcy.  Hedge funds and other distressed debt traders buy and sell millions of dollars of distressed securities and bankruptcy claims every day.  A number of private equity funds focus exclusively on buying distressed businesses, fixing, and selling them.  And fortunes are made real estate crashes by those who have the dry powder to swoop in and buy when others are forced to sell.  This webinar explains how to loan to, or purchase the debt of, a company in order to acquire it (a strategy commonly called “loan to own”); how to learn about opportunities involving distressed companies; and tips and best practices for participating in bankruptcy, Article 9, and other sales of distressed businesses (including the concept of serving as the “stalking horse).
