Live Panel Discussion: Restructure with Foresight

Restructure with Foresight - Potential, Challenges & Outlook in APAC

In partnership with Debtwire, an Acuris Company

DATE: 6 May 2020

TIME: 11:00am Hong Kong / 12:00pm Tokyo / 1:00pm Sydney

Governments in Asia have so far responded to the coronavirus with various monetary and fiscal measures to help support their economies while temporary amendments to insolvency laws have also been made to help companies that, amid sudden cash flow crunches, are finding themselves unable to service their debt.

But given the virus’ impact will likely have a longer and more profound effect than was anticipated, it is almost certain restructurings and bankruptcies will skyrocket around the region.

Over 500 dealmakers across Asia Pacific joined the live panel discussion with our esteemed panel, as we took stock of the response to date in Asia Pacific’s major economies and considered the areas where financial stress is of greatest concern, including the region’s distressed debt market, bolstering liquidity, and the effects of economic stimuli and insolvency laws.

Our panelists:

  • Ashok Kumar, Director, BlackOak LLC
  • Jason Kardachi, Managing Director, Borrelli Walsh
  • James Dilley, Partner, PwC China
  • Edward Middleton, Managing Director, Hong Kong, Houlihan Lokey
  • Desmond Chua, Head of Region, APAC, Datasite
  • Luc Mongeon, Managing Editor, Debtwire Asia-Pacific (moderator)
