Liquidity Management and Dealing with Financial Distress

Event Information

Date: Thursday April 23, 2020
Time: 9:00–10:00 UTC+3
Location: Online

Speaker: Matti Suominen, Professor, Finance, Aalto University School of Business.

In Financial distress firms lose value as customers who are afraid of not having access to future service leave, best employees start searching for new jobs, and managements’ time is devoted to searching for new finance not restructuring. Incentives become distorted and conflicts between debt and equity investors arise.

Management for value requires cutting the wings from financial distress spiral. As bankruptcies typically occur due to lack of liquidity, securing sufficient liquidity is a key.

  • What are the options?
  • When is the best moment to seek liquidity from the financial markets?
  • What financing solutions work best for distressed firms and why?

The webinar is free of charge. We will share the webinar recording after the event with all registrees.
