Mario J. Ippolito and William Schwitter will be participating in a 90-minute webinar for Buyouts Magazine on the topic of Profiting From Debt Repurchases In 2009. The webinar will take place on January 22, 2009 (12:00 pm - 1:30 pm ET).

Overview:

Nows the time to buy portfolio-company debt. But how?

The opportunity is unprecedented. Senior loans and high-yield bonds are changing hands at massive discounts. Portfolio companies with extra cash on hand can retire debt at a cost far beneath what it will cost to refinance down the road. And if portfolio companies dont have the cash on hand? Buyout firms themselves may wish to purchase debt on the secondary market, either as an opportunistic investment, or as a way to ease pressure on a company that may not be hitting on all cylinders. More than anyone, buyout pros know when discounts on portfolio-company debt are warranted or overdone.

But buying portfolio company debt poses a number of challenges.

Among them: navigating restrictions in the underlying debt documents. To give you a thorough understanding of the challenges, problems and solutions, Thomson Reuters, publisher of the popular Buyouts Magazine and Venture Capital Journal, is convening an all-star cast of expert speakers for a 90-minute online seminar.
