A collection of case studies illustrates real-world techniques, implementation, and strategies on corporate restructuring
Over the period 1981-1998, public companies with combined assets of over half a trillion dollars filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Over the same period, over 400 public companies underwent corporate spin-offs, divesting businesses valued at more than $250 billion. Each of these companies, and all of these dollars, were in some way or another involved in corporate restructuring. Gilson's cases studies have been used extensively in executive programs and are perfect tools to refer to when faced with real-world corporate restructuring issues.
Stuart C. Gilson (Boston, MA) is an Associate Professor at Harvard University and a widely acknowledged expert on corporate restructuring. He has studied and published on the intricacies of both domestic and international corporate restructuring.

"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:
Corporate restructuring helps companies address poor performance, pursue new strategic opportunities, and attain credibility in the capital market. It can also have a huge impact on a company's market value, often in the billions of dollars. But how does a corporate restructuring actually get done? How do the related bankruptcies, mergers and acquisitions, spin-offs, and buyouts affect creditors, shareholders, and employees? What are the options, issues, trade-offs, and conflicts?
In Creating Value through Corporate Restructuring: Case Studies in Bankruptcies, Buyouts, and Breakups, Harvard Business School professor Stuart Gilson answers these and other questions by providing a rare inside look at thirteen of the most controversial and innovative restructurings of the past decade. Based on interviews with executives, investment bankers, attorneys, investors, and other key participants in the restructurings, Creating Value through Corporate Restructuring will provide you with unique insights and data not available elsewhere.
Developed over an eight-year period at the Harvard Business School, these intensive cases from the United States, Canada, Germany, and Thailand explore:
* Corporate bankruptcy reorganization, debt workouts, and "vulture" investing
* Equity spin-offs, tracking stocks, and asset divestitures
* Employee layoffs and corporate downsizing
* How companies allocate value and when a corporation should "pull the trigger"
You'll read about the massive downsizing of Scott Paper Company under "Chainsaw" Al Dunlap, the employee buyout of UAL Corporation (parent of United Air Lines), USX's pioneering tracking stock offering, Continental Airlines' second trip through Chapter 11 bankruptcy court, and the merger of Chase Manhattan and Chemical Bank. You'll get inside information on handling mergers and acquisitions, highly leveraged transactions, debt restructurings, equity spin-offs, negotiated wage givebacks, employee stock buyouts, and changes to employee benefit plans.
Professor Gilson offers a rare glimpse into the events and personalities involved in the dramatic restructuring of thirteen companies-including Alphatech Electronics Pcl (Thailand), Humana Inc. (USA), The Loewen Group (Canada/USA), and FAG Kugelfischer (Germany). Whether you're a finance professional, institutional investor, manager, educator, or student, this book gets you as close as you can get to these major deals-without having made them yourself.
