Distressed M&A – Can You Count to 363? 

Financially challenged companies often present unique opportunities for buyers who know how to recognize upside and overcome obstacles.  Although distressed M&A has its own rules, customs and sub-culture, it need not be distressing.  Our panel of experts will discuss how well-advised buyers can navigate the process.
