Uchechi Egeonuigwe, associate in the Bankruptcy and Corporate Restructuring Group, will be a panelist at the STOUT Summit: Investment Fund and Portfolio Valuation virtual conference, providing her legal experience to the, “Insolvency and Restructuring Update in the Time of COVID-19: Sectors Impacted, Notable Filings, & Issues on the Horizon” panel. The conference will be held on Tuesday, October 27, 2020 from 1-6pm ET.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had unprecedented impact across the global economy. The economic carnage began during the Spring of 2020 and will continue with an industry agnostic impact. Significant percentages of certain industries will likely evaporate and be unable to recover from the great shutdown of the American and global economy. There have been several large bankruptcy filings in response to the unprecedented challenges that have arisen during this time period. It will be interesting to see how companies and consumers respond to these macro-economic and health shocks and how capital providers work through the market uncertainties through the courts and through other approaches.

This panel will explore some of the most prominent issues that have arisen in this period:

  • Valuation uncertainty at times of market unrest
  • Pre-petition liability management transactions and the impact on bankruptcy proceedings
  • Business plan feasibility and best practices for companies in distress
  • Sector specific developments including oil and gas, airlines, and retail

The panel will review several insolvencies (bankruptcy filings) that have characterized the first phase of COVID-19 in America:

  • Notable filings
  • Industries impacted
  • Market reaction
  • Stakeholder review
