Livestream - Restaurants: The Other Distressed Retail


Will the challenges facing restaurants--significant increases in the cost of labor, the pressure to invest in and provide e-commerce offerings, higher debt loads, investor return expectations—tilt the industry towards an increase in bankruptcies? Are restaurants slated to follow the path of general retailers, which, according to an analysis by BankruptcyData, have experienced a 35% YTD increase in bankruptcies? If so, what restructuring options are available either out of court or in Chapter 11? This webinar will explore these questions, along with key legal and investment banking issues.
