Alice Eaton Discusses Uptick in U.S. Restructurings in Debtwire

July 7, 2023

Restructuring partner Alice Eaton spoke with Debtwire about the possibility of a long-awaited surge in U.S. restructuring activity and the need for companies to fix capital structures that are unsustainable in a world of high interest rates and inflation.

In the article, “Restructuring Experts Gear Up for Busy 2H23 as High Rates Create Refi Plight,” published on July 7, Alice says the real solution for companies is to reduce their debt loads. “If the company doesn’t have financial stability, it can have infinite basket capacity and that won’t make the company whole,” Alice says.

While some restructuring efforts may end in bankruptcy filings, Alice notes that she does not foresee a rapid uptick in companies rushing to file. “I don’t think it will be one big wave. It will be a constant flow as companies work through their maturities and capital structure needs,” she says.
