Opportunity on Thursday: Free Webinar Reviewing Energy Future Holdings’ Bankruptcy by Beard Group

WASHINGTON, May 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Four corporate restructuring experts will review and offer their insights about Energy Future Holdings Corp.’s chapter 11 filing in a free Webinar at 1:00 p.m., Eastern Time, on Thurs., May 8, 2014.

Visit http://bankrupt.com/webinars/ for more information and to register for this Webinar. This Webinar is open to anyone at no charge, but advance registration for this Webinar is required to participate.

These four seasoned corporate restructuring professionals:

(A) Edward (Ted) Gavin, a Certified Turnaround Professional and Managing Partner in Gavin/Solmonese LLC’s Wilmington, Del., office;

(B) Christopher A. Ward, co-chair of the Bankruptcy and Financial Restructuring practice and managing shareholder of Polsinelli PC’s Delaware office;

(C) Edward M. Fox, a corporate restructuring lawyer in Polsinelli PC’s New York office; and

(D) Kell C. Mercer, a member of the Financial Services industry team at Husch Blackwell LLP in Houston, Tex.

will address these three important questions:

(1) How does one of the nation’s largest, most complex energy production companies end up in Chapter 11 — and how is it going to get out?

(2) How did the largest LBO in history turn into one of the largest chapter 11 bankruptcies ever filed — and how can it be corrected?

(3) What are the unique bankruptcy, business, and regulatory issues confronting EFH, its creditors, shareholders, and parties in interest, and how might they be resolved?

As widely reported, EFH and its debtor-affiliates sought chapter 11 protection on April 29, 2014, placing $36 billion of assets under Bankruptcy Court supervision to resolve $49 billion in liabilities.
