)-- The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts, announced today that it has scheduled a live webcast entitled: Distressed Debt Investing in the Oil and Gas Industry: Opportunities and Challenges. This two-hour event is scheduled on November 18, 2016 at 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM (ET).
In June 2014, the price of oil dropped sharply from more than $100 to around $50 per barrel, and since then have remained at record lows. The oil pricing environment poses serious challenges, including business and legal issues unique to exploration and production (E&P) companies. This economic trend have led to multiple company bankruptcies, and has impacted a wide range of services and industries.
While E&P companies continue to struggle with the decline in oil prices, distressed investors have turned this situation into an opportunity to invest in the oil and gas sector. A wide range of financial players, including private equity firms, have showed renewed interest to participate in the sector. However, investors should be aware of the underlying benefits and risks of distressed investing in the E&P space. Investors need to approach deal activities with caution that must go into diligence and structure.
In a two-hour live Webcast, a panel of thought leaders and practitioners assembled by The Knowledge Group will discuss the significant issues surrounding Distressed Debt Investing in the Oil and Gas Industry. They will provide insights on the challenges and opportunities arising from depressed oil and gas prices. Speakers will also offer suggestions on how to overcome these challenges and capitalize on these opportunities.
Key issues that will be covered in this course are:
· Bankruptcy Basics
· Unique Challenges in Oil & Gas Industry
· Distressed Investing Opportunities
· Investment Strategies
· Benefits and Risks in Distressed Investing
