Welcome to the 2009 Reuters Restructuring Summit

September 28, 2009




The U.S. recession and global credit crisis pulled a stunning array of corporate giants into bankruptcy court this year. Automakers General Motors and Chrysler, real estate company General Growth, and chemicals maker Lyondell all sought protection from their creditors after being brought down by rapidly changing economics and customer demands. 

While the sudden shift in fortunes for some of the world’s biggest companies wiped out the savings of some equity investors, the changes have paved the way for new and interesting investment or takeover opportunities for other investors. 

The restructuring professionals who help rebuild failed businesses are also learning on the fly–designing dramatically new ways of reorganizing companies and taking note of groundbreaking bankruptcy cases like Chrysler. 

Some of the most influential people in the restructuring sector will discuss these and related issues at the Reuters Restructuring Summit on Sept. 28-Oct 1 in New York and London. The Summit will generate exclusive interviews and investable insights from our team of expert reporters, as well as online videos and blog postings.
