    Advanced Negotiation Issues in Restructuring

    Redcliffe Training Associates Ltd

    London

    Course Overview :

    The wave of restructurings which have occurred, and continue to occur, in Europe since the crisis have had a dramatic impact on the restructuring landscape and led to the evolution of a raft of new techniques and approaches in what was, hitherto, a largely anachronistic part of the law.

    The global nature of many firms and financing techniques has generated a more eclectic approach to restructuring techniques and the evolution of various trends. First, the rise in popularity of UK Schemes of Arrangement; second, the introduction, by various jurisdictions, of more flexible restructuring techniques e.g. ”Pre-packs”; third, the desire to seek a CoMi shift to access a more flexible pathway and finally, the willingness to use US courts e.g. Chapter 11 (particularly in the larger deals)

    Pre-packs are available not only in the UK but in numerous jurisdiction on the Continent in one shape or another (e.g. France, Spain, Holland). Pre-packs are often more a term of art and the approach and issues are broadly similar since the issues tend to transcend jurisdictions. This programme covers Prepacks from a European perspective but draws on the experiences in the UK market.

    Similarly, the flexibility offered by UK Schemes of Arrangement coupled with its availability to in many jurisdictions outside the UK has seen them used globally but particularly in Germany, Spain, the Netherlands, France, Russia and even Vietnam. Some jurisdictions have responded by introducing more flexible restructuring pathways which provide greater flexibility e.g. Spain, Germany and France.  This programme covers the process but also examines some of the more controversial areas in Schemes which have arisen in practice. Various landmark restructurings are discussed to illustrate some of these issues.

    The UK offers one of the most flexible, cost-effective pathways for restructurings. UK Administrations provide a “wrapper” with a moratorium giving firms breathing space to implement the most effective method of restructuring. These methods may be available to non-UK companies via a CoMi shift and have been used where the local regime is too inflexible. The programme reviews the key issues and cases in Administration and CVAs particularly where they have been used by non-UK firms (e.g. Schefenacker).

    Valuation lies at the heart of any restructuring and the programme looks briefly at the current approaches to valuation and analyses the approaches used.  Conventional wisdom suggests that and theoretically, parties who are “out-of-the-money” play no part in proceedings since restructurings follow the priority of claims ensconced in law (e.g. employee claims) or a contractual framework via the payment waterfall. In practice this is not always the case and, particularly in more complex deals, the key issue is to get a seat at the restructuring table to influence the process.

    This course explores the negotiating levers which various parties can use to obtain a seat at the negotiating table together with the restructuring methods, solutions, techniques and tactics for managing all the players as well as the practical issues which will face parties in leveraged and unleveraged deals and, drawing on the trainer’s experience, offers a practical template on how to respond to the issues they are likely to face.

    The course is aimed at lenders, sponsors, lawyers, accountants and other advisers involved in this sector, management and other professions (investment advisers) operating in the European environment who require a greater insight into the key issues which arise in financial restructurings.

    Derivatives and ISDA Documentation: Introduction to Legal Aspects

    Redcliffe Training Associates Ltd

    London

    Course overview

    Derivatives have become a vital tool in risk management, asset management and structured financings. The global market is huge, and not only banks and financial institutions but also commercial companies are regular participants.

    Lawyers and documentation staff need to understand the products, the legal issues, and effective documentation techniques.

    The first part of this course gives an introduction to derivatives – what they are, how they work and why people use them. It also considers some of the things that have gone wrong and caused litigation.

    In the second part there will be a review of the key provisions of the standard OTC market documents produced by ISDA.

    The IPO Training Course

    Redcliffe Training Associates Ltd

    London

    Course Overview

    Listing a company on a stock exchange via an Initial Public Offer – IPO (or “flotation”) is a complex, time consuming and strategically important corporate activity.
    While not being the only option available to achieve an exit from their investment by shareholders, it remains a popular and desirable objective for many.

    However, the choice to gain admission for the trading of a company’s shares on a stock exchange involves extensive work on accounting, legal, and governance issues. Anticipation of the ongoing obligations of companies, post IPO, is also an important element of preparation.

    The possible changes to its board of directors and to its accounts by the applicant company are also discussed, together with the need to fulfil “ongoing obligations” post IPO.
