FT Digital Dialogues From Crisis to Recovery

Webinar description

In the midst of a crisis, balancing short term imperatives with long term strategic goals can be challenging. But unprecedented times present businesses with a unique opportunity to reassess their fundamental value drivers, reimagine how to best capitalise on those drivers and bend the fixed cost curve in a way that can lead to a stronger more competitive business. How can organisations navigate the transition from crisis to recovery? What can be learnt from the differing response from business across the globe? What steps can Private Equity firms and public companies take to mitigate the economic impact of the pandemic and to emerge stronger? The Financial Times, together with Alvarez & Marsal, are pleased to partner on the latest FT Digital Dialogue: From Crisis to Recovery. The discussion will leverage global expertise to address the pressing challenges facing Private Equity Firms, their portfolio companies, and wider corporations as they strategise their recovery.

Key Talking Points:

Pivoting to Cash: How can organisations boost their liquidity to successfully navigate the uncertain months ahead? How accessible and effective are government support schemes in meeting immediate cash needs? How can opportunistic PE firms deploy rescue capital to fill the deficit?

● Preserving Value: How can a quick and decisive approach to cost-cutting and reorganisation prevent more drastic restructuring action further down the line?

● From Defense to Offence: How can organisations capitalise on the rise in distressed assets? At what pace can we expect M&A activity to resume post-crisis?

● Success in a New Normal: Those who emerge from a crisis strong are better poised to assert market dominance. How can organisations prepare for a success in future that few of us can define?
