This cross-listed, interdisciplinary course is built around several important themes that are part of almost every corporate restructuring: Valuation, Governance, the Law, and associated Strategic considerations. The first half of the course establishes a framework and tools to consider healthy company valuation and restructuring; the second half emphasizes distressed restructuring and reorganization. The course prepares professionals in business and law to assess a wide variety of situations, including mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, sales, leveraged buyouts, activist investors, bankruptcies, liquidations, reorganizations (both healthy and distressed), and in-court and out-of-court negotiation. Prerequisite: Law students must have taken Law 210, Business Associations, and Law 325, Corporate Finance, in order to enroll in this course. In addition, Law students should note that the course meets on the Fuqua half-semester schedule, which begins in mid-March and ends in late April. Law students will be expected to attend and fully participate in class during the Law School reading and exam period.
