Shipping companies, from Singapore to Greece to New York, are really feeling the pressure of the down turn in the shipping economic cycle. At the top of the cycle, increased capital investment fuels new shipbuilding and at the bottom of the cycle, demand and rates fall and excess tonnage sits idle or operates at a loss. In 2012, it appears that many sectors of the shipping industry are headed for the rocks as more owners threaten to default on loans and have to face the painful process of restructuring and, in some cases, bankruptcy. Currently, many owners seem to be seeking protection under Chapters 11 and 15 of the US Bankruptcy Code including such entities as Marco Polo Seatrade, General Maritime, TBS and Omega Navigation.
Please join our global shipping and restructuring partners: Bill Amos, Rick Hyman, John Marsden and Devi Shah as they discuss the below topics in connection with the restructuring of the shipping industry.
