Creating Value through Corporate Restructuring: Case Studies in Bankruptcies, Buyouts, and Breakups

by Stuart C. Gilson

Abstract

A collection of case studies illustrates real-world techniques, implementation, and strategies on corporate restructuring. Over the period 1981-1998, public companies with combined assets of over half a trillion dollars filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Over the same period, over 400 public companies underwent corporate spin-offs, divesting businesses valued at more than $250 billion. Each of these companies, and all of these dollars, were in some way or another involved in corporate restructuring. Gilson's case studies have been used extensively in executive programs and are perfect tools to refer to when faced with real-world corporate restructuring issues.

Keywords: Restructuring; Insolvency and Bankruptcy; Management Analysis, Tools, and Techniques; Public Ownership; Value Creation;
