Advanced Educational Session

$125/person (you may register onsite at the TMA registration desk or

“A Tale of Two Times: Surviving Today,

Managing for Tomorrow”

Richard H. Fleming, USG Corporation

This session addresses the dual goals of managing

a business for survival today while simultaneously

positioning it for growth and profitability in the future.

These principles are illustrated through a detailed

examination of the challenges confronting suppliers

to the housing industry in today’s difficult economic

environment by examining USG Corporation, the

largest supplier of wallboard in North America. Due to

the current recession, USG has seen industry demand

for its core wallboard product drop an unprecedented

50%. The session provides a detailed assessment of the

threats and the opportunities that have occurred in the

residential real estate market, as well as the unfolding

situation in the commercial construction industry. A

key objective of the session is to describe how the joint

management of business operations and capital structure

decisions is paramount in managing for survival in

today’s economic environment while simultaneously

positioning the business for success in the future. Thus,

the session provides important general insights for

turnaround managers in all industries adversely impacted

by current business conditions and lack of financing

opportunities.

Body of Knowledge Courses

Taught by a business school professor, practicing attorney and

United States Bankruptcy Judge, the Body of Knowledge

courses are open to all corporate renewal professionals seeking

valuable tools to help apply the principles of corporate renewal to

real-world situations. The course registration fee is $275/course; the

corresponding course book is $225/book or $625 for the full set of books.

Company; Robert J. Diehl, Bodman LLP;

Charles M. Moore, CTP, Conway

MacKenzie, Inc.; Tricia A. Sherick,

“ The U.S. Retail Sector: It Finally

Happened—Consumers Shopped Till

They Dropped”

Moderator: Robert J. Duffy,

FTI Consulting, Inc.

Panel: John R. Buck, Versa Capital

Management; Benjamin L. Nortman, Hilco;

Betsy Ratto, Bank of America Retail Finance

Group

Despite rising expectations for U.S. economic

recovery to begin in late 2009, prospects for

the retail sector remain subdued at best, with

growth in discretionary consumer spending

expected to remain far below normal at

least through 2010. This panel of experts

will discuss the likelihood and implications

of a prolonged sales slump for U.S. retailers,

including its potential impact on various

retail categories and on marginal retail chains

and the entities that do business with them.

Discussion topics will include:

• What has happened to the spendthrift American

consumer since 2008?

• How have large retailers constructively responded

to the sales slump? How over-stored is America?

• What should we expect for sales levels during

the 2009 holiday season? What are reasonable

forecasts?

• How significant is the impact beyond retail on

consumer goods makers, landlords, REITs and

consumer finance companies?

• What have we learned from the slew of retail

bankruptcies this year?

• Are traditional retail restructurings still

possible in this environment? Is BAPCPA

really to blame?

Moderator: Ward K. Mooney

Crystal Capital Fund Management LP

LBC Credit Partners Inc.

Cathy Hershcopf

Cooley Godward Kronish LLP

David Peress

Hudson Capital Partners, LLC

The right side of the balance sheet reflects the

true financial health of a business enterprise.

Each component is controlled and driven

by important constituencies that need to

be coordinated, managed and understood

in order to maximize strategic and financial

objectives. In a restructuring, the right side of

the balance sheet can be a complex, intriguing,

mysterious quagmire, as various stakeholders

sort out who is who, and who is what. This

panel will address the current complexities

in the debt capital markets and how capital,

and capital structures, are being addressed,

dissected, debated, legislated and challenged.

Once the smoke clears, will the complexities

of the right side of the balance sheet allow for

successful, long-term restructurings?

Thursday, October 8

“State of the Capital Markets”

Moderator: Steve Zelin

The Blackstone Group

Panel: Richard Banziger,

Citigroup Global Markets Inc.

Christine Daley, Oak Hill Advisors

Lawrence E. Klaff, GB Merchant Partners

Bruce Mendelsohn, Goldman Sachs

What lies ahead? During the past two years,

the financial markets have experienced

unprecedented volatility, the effects of which

have changed the Wall Street landscape for

years to come. At the same time, the balance

sheets of many companies benefiting from

the loose financing terms available in the

middle of the decade are soon facing a time of

reckoning. This panel will provide their views

on what the next few years will look like

and who are likely to be the winners and the

losers. Fasten your seatbelt.

Panel: David L. Auchterlonie, CTP

The Scotland Group, Inc.

Joseph Bondi

Alvarez & Marsal

Saul E. Burian

Houlihan Lokey

In the last 25 years, there have been more

than 200 instances of relatively large firms

filing for bankruptcy twice (Chapter 22),

three times (Chapter 33) or even four times

(Chapter 44). This multi-filing occurrence

has happened in more than 15 percent of

all large firm emergences with negative

ramifications for the U.S. Chapter 11 process.

This panel explores the reasons for this

result and proposes a way to screen Chapter

11 emergences to significantly reduce this

unfortunate event.

Thursday, October 8

Conway Del Genio Gries & Co, LLC

Jeffrey N. Pomerantz

Pachulski Stang Ziehl & Jones LLP

First day motions are not just a checklist

of pleadings that must be filed to ensure a

smooth transition into Chapter 11. Behind

most first day motions are business and

operational issues that, if not anticipated and

solved, will result in operational problems

even if the relief requested in the motion

is granted. This panel will discuss some key

operational and legal issues that companies

and advisors cannot let “fall through the

cracks,” as well as ways to ensure that

companies are prepared for the worst, as

they hope for the best.

Office of the U.S. Trustee

Ethics is always an issue of concern

during restructuring and in bankruptcy,

not just for lawyers but for all corporate

renewal professionals and their clients. As

the economic, financial and regulatory

environments become even more challenging,

restructuring and corporate renewal

professionals and their clients will likely find

business decisions scrutinized for conflicts

of interest with increasing frequency. This

Paul Halpern

Versa Capital Management, Inc.

This session profiles overlooked risk

management strategies available to

companies in distress. Leading industry

experts will offer unique perspectives

about the credit decision-making process

inside one of the world’s leading insurers,

including insight into how an insured’s

financial rating impacts pricing and how

the current environment is affecting

collateral trends; the use of insurance

products and professionals in due diligence

and post-acquisition performance

improvement; and the increased use of

transaction insurance products as a bridge

between negotiating parties in business

transactions. Attendees will learn:

• Practical ideas for better managing

negotiations related to how insurers look

at distress, credit risk, bankruptcy and

collateral

• The importance that private equity places

on independent insurance due diligence

as a pre-acquisition discipline and parallel

opportunities in corporate turnaround

and renewal

• How transaction insurance products (reps

and warranties, tax opinion, etc.) can be

“deal enablers” and provide an efficient,

cost-effective alternative to delays, hold

backs and escrows

Continuing Education

CTP Certification Program

The Certified Turnaround

Professional (CTP)

designation was

introduced in 1993 as an objective

measure of the experience,

knowledge and integrity that is

necessary to conduct corporate

renewal work. The CTP program

establishes quality standards

for an otherwise unregulated

profession. The CTP designation

provides evidence of an individual’s commitment to the turnaround and

corporate renewal industry and also attests to a level of expertise that

non-certified professionals may find difficult to prove. Completing the

CTP certification process provides a corporate renewal professional

with a solid foundation to operate successfully in the industry and could

very well enhance future earning power.

The CTP program also offers an interim designation, the Certified

Turnaround Professional–Designate (CTP-D), for those applicants

who are working in the corporate renewal profession but have not

yet acquired all of the necessary CTP work experience. This interim

step to full certification indicates that the candidate has demonstrated

proficiency in the legal, managerial and financial aspects of a turnaround

and is concurrently working toward the CTP designation.

The CTP and CTP-D certification processes consist of the following steps:

dates have passed, you will not be eligible for any type of refund.

These cancellation policies apply to all individuals, regardless of when the

renewals will be refunded in full.

Substitution Policy

Substitutions are permitted at any time. Substitutions must be

submitted in writing (email is acceptable). Substitutions will

not be reviewed or processed until they are received in writing.

Phone substitutions are not accepted. The substitute must be

from the same firm as the original registrant, and the substitution

notice must contain accurate contact information for the

new registrant; otherwise, TMA cannot guarantee an accurate

listing in the registration list. Substitutions must be of the

same membership status/category (e.g., member, nonmember,

academic); otherwise, the substitute will be invoiced for the

difference in registration fees. Please note that substitutions

made after September 23, 2009, will not be reflected on the

registration list, per the policy outlined in this brochure.

Entire Convention: Substitution of an entire convention

registration includes the fees for educational sessions, recreational

activities and/or spouse/guest registration included

with the original registration. If the substitute does not wish

to utilize one or more of these options, TMA’s cancellation

policies will be applied.

Spouse/Guest Full Registration or Event Pass: Substitutions

are allowed for the spouse/guest registration options

provided that the substitute is a spouse/guest of a registrant

from the same firm as the original registrant, meaning

spouse/guest registration is transferable only within the

same firm.

Advanced Educational Session: Substitutions are allowed

at any time provided that the substitute is from the same

firm as the original registrant.

Membership renewals are non-transferable. In the case

of a substitution for an entire convention registration that

includes membership renewal, the membership renewal is

retained by the original registrant.
