This webinar addresses the current issues facing lenders and producers in dealing with distressed reserve-based loans and present several creative alternatives for dealing with those loans in order to avoid the undesirable equity and debt restructurings of the past. The panel discusses the Chapter 11 debt and equity restructurings of these loans in prior down cycles, why those restructurings are no longer desirable to lenders in today’s environment, and how new alternatives being considered in the marketplace can produce better long-term results for the lender and the producer.
