The New York Private Equity Network ("NYPEN") and Alvarez & Marsal are hosting an education session to discuss the “Early Warning Signs of Portfolio Company Distress”.

The panel discussion will be led by Nick Alvarez and Richard Jenkins, the National Practice Leaders of Alvarez & Marsal’s Private Equity Performance Improvement practice, as well as two directors in this group, Scott Thompson and Max Fulton. This session will focus on the detection of warning signs that can lead to cash constriction/crisis, as well as the tools a sponsor can use to proactively address these warnings to prevent crisis and preserve value.

What You can Expect to Learn: 
•   Common “warning signs” and how they can impact a business
•   What “SMOKE ALARMS” a sponsor can require of management enabling early detection of these “WARNING SIGNS”
•   Sample remedies once a warning sign is detected
•   Case studies highlighting different warning signs and what we did to successfully resolve the issue and what happened when signs were ignored or missed
