    Fitness First is the world’s largest premium health club operator. Following the acquisition of $A910 million of non performing debt, the new hedge fund owners set about undertaking a financial restructure and corporate turnaround to position the business for future growth.

    After delivering a range of operational improvements, the company developed and implemented a highly innovative approach to exiting 30 sites involving a Scheme of Arrangement. Following an intense period of negotiation, terms were reached with affected landlords. The outstanding result was achieved using a combination of legal and commercial techniques that have not previously been utilised in the Australian market.

    Fitness First was awarded the 2013 Large Institution Turnaround of the Year by TMA Australia and is a compelling story.

    Chris Martin is a Managing Director at 333 Management and is one of Australia’s leading transformation, turnaround and corporate renewal advisors. Chris led the financial restructure and operational turnaround reporting to overseas based hedge funds.

    This year Tony is hosting the weekly sports panel show Back Page Live, along with several other programs, on Fox Sports. He will be heard on Triple M, heading up a range of weekly shows throughout the football season and also hosts Triple M’s drive show over the summer months.

    Originally from Newcastle, Tony has worked on stage, music, radio and television with a number of his Novocastrian mates, including Robins, Steve “the Sandman” Abbott and John Doyle, aka “Roy Slaven”.

    Tony moved from the reclining leather chair of Inside the ‘Arena’ to the desk to host the much loved sports panel show ‘The Fat’ on ABC TV. Concerned more with the theatre of sport than the groin strain injuries, it was a huge hit before the Seven Network swooped. Tony has been a journalist for more than 25 years, with much of that time spent at the Sydney Morning Herald as a feature writer, columnist and section editor. He edited the Guide for a number of years, as well as being editor of the sports section. He wrote a popular weekly television column before getting his own head on the box. Tony now writes regularly for major newspapers and magazines. In 2009, Tony published his second book, Cracking the Footy Codes.

    The Western Australian economy is undergoing significant change. There is a downward trend in mining infrastructure activity, the Oil & Gas sector is trending upwards and long term sustainability is a key focus. As the economy changes turnaround practitioners are assisting WA businesses to become more sustainable and take advantage of new opportunities. It is no surprise that capital to support these businesses is in high demand.

    At this unique event, Perth’s CEO’s and most senior turnaround professionals will be able to connect with multiple capital providers, providing a prime opportunity to understand the sources of capital available to their clients. 

    For the equity provider, this is an ideal marketing opportunity where you will have a captive audience comprising Perth’s leading turnaround practitioners - which may open doors to your next big deal. 

    To facilitate contact between the equity providers and turnaround practitioners, the evening will begin with a ‘speed networking’ session, allowing each equity provider a relaxed and comprehensive forum in which to speak directly with each of the participating turnaround practitioners.

    The speed networking session will be followed by a 3-course dinner accompanied by a discussion about turnaround from a lenders perspective. An experienced banking professional will offer their view of how well turnarounds address the challenges of distressed companies including tips when working with a lender on a turnaround.

    Evening Format:

    5.15pm – 7.00pm

    Speed networking and pre-dinner drinks – where WA’s Turnaround Practitioners have the opportunity to exchange details with each of the key players in Perth’s capital markets.
