Swim outside your lane to take advantage of today’s investment opportunities

Wednesday September 16, 2020 | 1:00 PM to 1:45 PM

 Independent sponsors are encouraged to swim in their own lane to attract capital providers and achieve their investment goals.  But market conditions and investment opportunities have changed.  The impact of the coronavirus pandemic could result in a wave of under-valued targets.  Some in your lane and others not.  Some of these targets were stressed before the coronavirus pandemic, others became stressed as a result of the pandemic and a third group has benefitted from the pandemic.  Questions abound:  What are the situation-specific risks involved in swimming outside your lane, and pursuing distressed investment opportunities?  If you’ve not originated and closed distressed deals, what specialized skills would help to do so?  How do you modify the diligence process to reflect the impact of Covid-19 on the deal?  Are capital providers interested in financing distressed deals?  Here, we’ll discuss the top issues impacting dealmaking in today’s market
