For the corporate debt markets, 2017 looks primed to be a very interesting year as debt issuance surged in 2016, a new US administration was elected and the global geopolitical environment continues to change. The retail, financial, and energy sectors continue to present opportunities to distressed debt investors. Retail bankruptcies have become more complex as unsecured creditors are running into road blocks from vendor and landlord claims, among other issues. Renewed opportunities will emerge in energy as bid-ask spreads of E&P assets are beginning to narrow as deal making finally begins to tick up. What are the best practices for distressed investing across this complex market landscape? This year's Debtwire Investors Summit will provide insight from leading investors and practitioners on distressed debt and restructuring strategies within the current economic and political environment.
WilmerHale Partner Phil Anker will speak on the panel "Caesars and Energy Future Holdings: Post-Mortem on Two Groundbreaking Cases."
