9780470503522: Creating Value Through Corporate Restructuring: Case Studies in Bankruptcies, Buyouts, and Breakups

An updated look at how corporate restructuring really works

Stuart Gilson is one of the leading corporate restructuring experts in the United States, teaching thousands of students and consulting with numerous companies. Now, in the second edition of this bestselling book, Gilson returns to present new insight into corporate restructuring.

Through real-world case studies that involve some of the most prominent restructurings of the last ten years, and highlighting the increased role of hedge funds in distressed investing, you'll develop a better sense of the restructuring process and how it can truly create value. In addition to "classic" buyout and structuring case studies, this second edition includes coverage of Delphi, General Motors, the Finova Group and Warren Buffett, Kmart and Sears, Adelphia Communications, Seagate Technology, Dupont-Conoco, and even the Eurotunnel debt restructuring.

  • Covers corporate bankruptcy reorganization, debt workouts, "vulture" investing, equity spin-offs, asset divestitures, and much more
  • Addresses the effect of employee layoffs and corporate downsizing
  • Examines how companies allocate value and when a corporation should "pull the trigger"

From hedge funds to financial fraud to subprime busts, this second edition offers a rare look at some of the most innovative and controversial restructurings ever.

From the Publisher:

"Gilson reminds readers that the devil is truly in the details, filling the 516-page text with real and specific financial data, flow charts, and statistics to illuminate each case. A portable version of Gilson's course, Creating Value through Corporate Restructuring gives readers the chance to learn the intricacies of this increasingly critical management process in today's volatile business climate." (The Harvard Business School Bulletin, December 2001)

From the Inside Flap:

Nearly a decade has passed since Creating Value through Corporate Restructuring was originally published. During this time, the business and financial world has faced incredible challenges, and the practice of corporate restructuring has been transformed in a number of significant ways.

That's why Harvard Business School Professor Stuart Gilson, one of the leading corporate restructuring experts in the United States and a consultant to numerous companies, has created the Second Edition of this bestselling book. Emphasizing learning through analysis of real-world case studies, the book is organized around three modules, each highlighting a particular area of restructuring, including the restructuring of debt and liabilities, equity and assets, and employees' claims. By giving you a unique "insider's" perspective on these cases, this reliable resource will help you develop a deeper understanding of the restructuring process and how it impacts corporate financial performance and value.

Featuring thirteen additional new case studies and technical chapters, this book will equip you with the insights and tools that you will need to capitalize on future restructuring challenges and opportunities, and to create value for your shareholders and other constituencies. In addition to addressing new strategies and practices in corporate restructuring, the new cases in this book highlight a number of important industry sectors that have been particularly hard hit by economic turmoil—including retailing (Kmart), technology (Arch Wireless Communications and Seagate Technology), finance (The Finova Group), and auto manufacturing (Delphi). Along the way, other case studies will provide you with valuable insights into issues such as the investment strategies used by hedge funds to trade in the debt of distressed companies (Kmart), the increasing use of Chapter 11 as a platform for auctioning off bankrupt firms' assets (Adelphia Communications), credit derivatives (Delphi Corp. and the Credit Derivatives Market), corporate restructuring practices outside the United States (Groupe Eurotunnel S.A. and Buenos Aires Embotelladora S.A.), and equity split-offs, equity carve-outs, and share repurchases (DuPont).

Based on interviews with executives, investment bankers, attorneys, creditors, investors, and other key participants, the cases found here involve some of the most innovative, complex, and controversial restructurings of the past two decades, and represent a broad cross-section of management and restructuring challenges. Engaging and informative, they offer an inside look at how a corporate restructuring actually gets done, and how restructuring could financially impact a company and those associated with it.

As global markets continue to become more integrated and competitive, corporate restructuring will play an increasingly important role in how companies create value. With the Second Edition of Creating Value through Corporate Restructuring as your guide, you'll discover how to effectively weigh your restructuring options and choose the best path forward.
