    The growing importance of international players and jurisdictions to the Australian turnaround sector

     While offshore capital has been targeting domestic opportunities for some time we are beginning to see the innovative use of foreign legal jurisdictions, especially in the mining and resources sectors, to effect restructurings.  A recent example is the restructure of an Australian listed company, Buccaneer Resources, which restructured using Chapter 11.  International advisory and hedge funds continue to establish local operations and are looking to reshape the local market by employing new strategies to implement international turnarounds . 

     Come and hear from a leading panel who will discuss recent experience and the outlook for our market.

    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.
