In the third quarter of 2013, Schulte Roth & Zabel commissioned Mergermarket to interview investment bankers, private equity practitioners and hedge fund managers based in the U.S. and Europe regarding their experience with distressed M&A activity and their expectations for the next 12-24 months. The result is a report that provides key findings on the role of macroeconomic and political factors in driving transactions, as well as insights into pricing, strategies, club deals and various other issues concerning the distressed M&A community in the U.S. and abroad.

Respondents were asked questions on pricing considerations and trends for distressed assets and companies in and outside of the U.S., the sectors representing the best distressed investing opportunities, the most common types of distressed opportunities being targeted and much more. SRZ partners Stuart D. FreedmanAdam C. Harris and Jeffrey A. Lenobel and former SRZ attorneys Peter J.M. Declercq, David E. Rosewater and Sonya Van de Graaff were instrumental in providing commentary and insight throughout the report.

The firm has a preeminent practice specialty in the area of distressed investing — with an interdisciplinary team of experienced professionals to handle the unique structuring, strategic, diligence, finance and documentation issues that arise in distressed M&A transactions — and has been counsel in many high-profile distressed investing transactions of all sizes and types.
