Investing

Conference


Welcome

It is our pleasure to invite you to attend the third annual

Distressed Investing Conference, co-produced

by the Turnaround Management Association (TMA)

and The Deal. The continued partnership of these

two organizations illustrates the vital link between

corporate restructuring professionals and corporate

and financial dealmakers.

More than 550 professionals attended last year’s conference to

exchange ideas and hear the latest trends on distressed investing

from industry experts. With anticipated record attendance, this

year’s conference will be the premier venue for key players in the

distressed investing arena to meet, exchange ideas and embark

on profitable relationships.

The quality of the educational program outlined on pages 4 and

5 is a testament to TMA’s and The Deal’s commitment to provide

timely education that best prepares you for what lies ahead

in 2009. Our panels will explore and analyze credit default

swaps; the impact of the credit crunch on debt and equity exit

financings; and hot topics in the distressed arena, as well as providing

topical case study sessions in response to your feedback.

The conference opens on Thursday morning with a keynote presentation

by Harvey Pitt, former chair of the U.S. Securities and

Exchange Commission. The recent, unprecedented shake-up in

the U.S. economy is sure to have repercussions, domestically and

globally, into 2009 and beyond. Reflecting his experience as a

regulator, crisis manager, risk assessor and attorney, Pitt will offer

pragmatic insights on the issues facing global business in this

ever-changing economic environment.

Friday morning’s keynote roundtable brings together accomplished

investors to discuss their views of the market and how

they approach distressed opportunities. Moderated by David

Resnick of Rothschild, the panel is comprised of Kevin Genda

of Cerberus; Mike Heisley of Heico; Marc Leder of Sun Capital;

and David Shapiro of KPS Capital Partners.

The conference would not be possible without the generous

support of our sponsors, who are listed on page 9. Sponsorships

are still available, and we encourage you to consider this opportunity

to showcase your firm to a diverse audience of industry

professionals.

We also encourage you to take advantage of the many opportunities

to network throughout the conference at meals, receptions

and coffee breaks, as well as in the exhibit hall. And, don’t forget

to take time to enjoy the Bellagio and all that it offers in dining,

entertainment and leisure activities.

Please make plans to join your colleagues at the Distressed

Investing Conference. You may register today using the form on

page 11, or register online at www.turnaround.org.

We look forward to seeing you in Las Vegas.

Educational Program

Keynote Sessions

Thursday, January 22, 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.

Harvey L. Pitt, SEC Chairman (2001-2003)

Harvey L. Pitt is the chief executive officer of the global business consulting firm,

Kalorama Partners, LLC. Prior to founding Kalorama Partners, Pitt was appointed by

President George W. Bush to serve as the twenty-sixth chairman of the United States

Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). In that role from 2001 until 2003, Pitt was

responsible, among other things, for overseeing the SEC’s response to the market disruptions

resulting from the terrorist attacks of 9/11, for creating the SEC’s “real time enforcement”

program and for leading the Commission’s adoption of dozens of rules in response

to the corporate and accounting crises generated by the excesses of the 1990s. Pitt had

previously served with the SEC in various roles, including as general counsel. Prior to

his work with the SEC, Pitt was a senior corporate partner in the international law firm of Fried, Frank,

Harris, Shriver & Jacobson. He also was a founding trustee and the first president of the SEC Historical

Society and participated in a wide variety of bar and continuing legal education activities to further public

consideration of significant corporate and securities law issues.

Friday, January 23, 9:00 a.m. – 10:15 a.m.

Keynote Roundtable

“Distressed Investment Fund Founders: Leaders in the Distressed Investing Arena”

Moderator: David L. Resnick, Rothschild Inc.

Panel: Kevin P. Genda, Cerberus Capital Management LP/Ableco Finance LLC; Michael E. Heisley,

The Heico Companies, LLC; Marc J. Leder, Sun Capital Partners, Inc.; and David Shapiro, KPS Capital

Partners, LP

This panel of accomplished investors will discuss how they view the market and how they approach

distressed opportunities. The panel represents a cross-section of investors pursuing a variety of successful

strategies of investing in distressed, underperforming and transitional enterprises. Each of the panelists has

played an integral role in building their investment fund. This is a rare opportunity to gain insight from

some of the biggest names in the business and benefit from their collective experiences. These individuals

have truly shaped the private equity/hedge fund/alternative investment approach to distressed investing

over the last several cycles. Come hear how they’ve built their funds and where they intend to focus during

the next cycle.

Advanced Case Study Session

Thursday, January 22, 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

$100/person (Price includes continental breakfast and a coffee break.)

“American Color Graphics and Vertis: The First Dual Prepack Merger”

Presenters: Daniel Aronson, Lazard; Paul N. Basta, Kirkland & Ellis LLP; Ira S. Dizengoff, Akin, Gump,

Strauss, Hauer & Feld LLP; Gary T. Holtzer, Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP; Edward R. Morrison,

Columbia Law School; Laura B. Resnikoff, Columbia Business School; Mark Shapiro, Barclays Capital

Their synergies obvious for years, American Color

Graphics and Vertis considered a merger in 2007

but were unable to consummate the transaction. The

firms were laden with too much debt. As merger

negotiations dragged on, the parties conceived

a remarkably simple, yet novel, solution to their

operational and financial problems: a merger in

bankruptcy. The firms entered bankruptcy independently

but jointly proposed a plan of reorganization

that simultaneously restructured their debts and

merged the entities. The plan was confirmed in

August 2008, after weeks of anxiety created by turmoil

in the credit markets. Our session will explore

the unusual legal, financial, and operational issues at

play in this bankruptcy-merger. During the first half

of the session, Professors Morrison and Resnikoff

will identify the issues. During the second half, a

panel of experts—each with a direct connection

to the remarkable transaction—will engage the

audience to discuss what it implies for companies,

boards of directors, investors, creditors, and service

professionals going forward.

General Sessions

Thursday, January 22, 2:30 p.m. – 3:20 p.m.

“Radnor Case Study”

Moderator: Timothy R. Pohl, Skadden, Arps, Slate,

Meagher & Flom LLP

Panel: Jose E. Feliciano, Clearlake Capital Group; David

Kurtz, Lazard Freres; Nancy A. Mitchell, Greenberg

Traurig LLP; Stanford Springel, Alvarez & Marsal

This session will explore a variety of current topics in the

context of how they were handled in the Radnor case,

including:

• DIP financing tied to secured creditor credit bids

• 363 sales and administrative insolvency

• Unsecured creditor committee issues in a cashless case

• Handling causes of action without derailing a sale

• Options a debtor has when value is less than secured debt

Thursday, January 22, 3:50 p.m. – 4:40 p.m.

“Credit Default Swaps: Roulette or Risk Management?”

Panel: William R. Baldiga, Brown Rudnick;

Michael Cannon, UBS Investment Bank;

Jeffrey P. Fitts, Alvarez & Marsal

Until 2008, the credit default market had been largely untested,

benefiting from low global default rates. Now, with

default rates set to spike, institutions that sold these instruments

are collapsing. What if the bank that sold protection

fails? Are investors spending billions of dollars on worthless

insurance? This panel will highlight the benefits of credit

default swaps as a risk management tool and examine the

associated risks, including market, systemic, counterparty and

firm risk.

Thursday, January 22, 4:55 p.m. – 5:45 p.m.

“Busted Distressed Financings: The Impact of the Credit

Crunch on Debt and Equity Exit Financings”

Moderator: Mark K. Thomas, Winston & Strawn LLP

Panel: Michael C. Buenzow, CTP, FTI Consulting, Inc.;

Thomas R. Califano, DLA Piper US LLP; William Q.

Derrough, Moelis & Company; Matthew R. Niemann,

CTP, Houlihan Lokey; Jonathan Rosenthal, Saybrook

Capital, LLC; A. Jeffrey Zappone, CTP, Conway MacKenzie

& Dunleavy

Friday, January 23, 10:45 a.m. – 11:35 a.m.

“Crisis in Consumer Confidence:

Where Will the Opportunities Be?”

Moderator: Rebecca A. Roof, AlixPartners, LLP

Panel: Saul E. Burian, Houlihan Lokey; Michael B. Cox,

The Seabury Group; Michael J. Genereux, The Blackstone

Group; Ronald F. Greenspan, FTI Consulting, Inc.; Edward

S. Weisfelner, Brown Rudnick LLP

From high fuel prices and record-level consumer debt levels

to the collapse of homebuilders and retailers, the U.S.

economy continues to struggle. Consumer confidence remains

low, and many market sectors have been dramatically

impacted. This panel will examine some of the industries

hardest hit and discuss where distressed investing opportunities

may occur.

Friday, January 23, 2009, 11:50 a.m. – 12:40 p.m.

“Funding the Process: Trends in DIP Financing”

Moderator: Michael Fixler, CM&D Capital Advisors LLC

• Is the DIP market really dead?

• Trends in pricing, terms and duration of DIP loans

• Priming DIPs—will there be any?

• Sources of DIP lending—who will it be, banks or funds?

• Will incumbent lenders be left with no choice but to provide

DIP financing?

Are the credit markets or just cold feet driving away debt

and equity exit financing? Are exit financing “commitments”

worth the paper they are written on? Are liquidated damage/termination

provisions an incentive to break commitments?

This panel will examine some of the most noteworthy

examples of busted exit financing deals, the litigation that

ensued from those deals and lessons to be learned by both

investors and borrowers.
