Center for the Study of Business Law and Regulation
Presentation by Edward I. Altman, Max L. Heine Professor of Finance
Leonard N. Stern School of Business, New York University
Professor Altman has been studying Chapter X and Chapter 11 bankruptcy cases for decades, and has developed a model to predict the viability of firms as they exit Chapter 11. He has testified before the various Congressional committees on the Bankruptcy Reform Act of 1978 and 2005 amendments, and the current American Bankruptcy Institute (ABI) Commission to Study the Reform of Chapter 11. Professor Altman will present his latest results, and his report will be the starting point for a discussion of feasibility, recidivism, plan modifications, and related issues.
