Westinghouse, a Truly International Chapter 11: From Atomic Start to Smashing Success in Only 363 Days


This panel will discuss (a) the strained relationship between the international parent and the subsidiary (including the fact that foreign operations were in different silos — i.e., there was no single C-suite per se); (b) the impact of the independent directors and the company's corporate governance best practices; (c) the international M&A process; (d) the unique (i.e., really unheard of) claims-trading activity that took place; and (e) the importance of timing (including a very difficult audit environment in the midst of an investigation).
