Case Study Workshop – During this session, the delegates will be given a case study project complete with forecast financial projections designed by management. Having applied the Butler and IFC frameworks to the case study, the delegates will use the excel financial model provided by the trainer, to undertake a sensitivity analysis of the forecasts financials.

Final Case Study Workshop – Using a new case study, the attendees working in their project teams, will provide a complete restructuring / workout solution to the problem loan on the basis of the information covered during the course. They will required to identify the key EWS inherent in the problem loan, review the sensitivity of the forecast financial projections in the excel model and propose a schedule of the restructured loan.

In a low interest rate environment, bankers and financiers are under increased pressure to undertake more corporate business at higher returns, but at the same time ensuring a low risk weighting. Given that the business climate remains uncertain and volatile, the risk for bankers of developing problem loans through their lending activities, is therefore increasing.
This Advanced Debt Restructuring course has been designed for bankers and financiers to develop a holistic, applied approach to early problem loan workout through a range of different techniques currently applied in UK and international finance. It aims to provide the attendee with a comprehensive overview of the challenges of problem loan workout and with an insight into some of the key methods than can be implemented to assist in the recovery of their financial exposure.
By offering a range of different case studies, financing scenarios and potential solutions to workshop case studies, the attendees will be able to develop a broad applied overview of debt restructuring techniques. This is particularly important in an area of finance where ‘one size fits all’ solutions are not possible and where the financier needs to be open minded, flexible and quick to react to changing circumstances.
The Advanced Debt Restructuring course draws from the experience of a range of different high profile debt restructuring case studies as well as the experience and project work of the trainer’s 23 year experience in debt structuring, restructuring and problem loan workout. A number of the case studies used during the course are those that have been undertaken directly by the trainer.
The Advanced Debt Restructuring course is highly interactive, with the course attendees working in project teams. They will be required to work in their project teams in devising solutions and providing recommendations to the rest of the delegates who will cross examine their proposals in a credit committee environment.
During the second day of the Advanced Debt Restructuring course, the attendees will use forecast cash flow analysis as part of the strategic business review for the restructuring candidate. A knowledge of the working of Microsoft excel with therefore be an advantage for the attendees.
