Opportunity Investing in the Distressed Markets, More at iiBIG Las Vegas Forum

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - August 13, 2008) - iiBIG presents the 2nd Annual Distressed & Turnaround Investment Forum, scheduled for September 22-23, 2008, at the Palazzo/Venetian Congress Center in Las Vegas.

The subprime lending crisis continues to dominate headlining news with the latest on a Congress-backed rescue package deal for mortgage lenders Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and a string of bankruptcies involving smaller banks as Suncrest Bank and IndyMac. What lies in store for the distressed market investor in this latest wave of bankruptcies? Opportunities present and beyond 2008.

This event will review such topics as the structural analysis of the market "meltdown," credit crunch, and resulting investment opportunities; the current role of hedge funds, asset-based lenders, private equity firms, and institutional investors in the distressed and turnaround markets; remedies for Legacy Ills, activist investing, corporate governance, cross-border and international distressed debt opportunities; and much more.

Hear about the latest distressed and turnaround investing and distressed debt beyond 2008 and more from leading executives from private equity, investment banks, and asset management companies as well as fund managers, lenders, turnaround consultants, and institutional investors. Agenda details and preliminary attendee list can be found at

Leading conference sponsors include McMillan, Munger, Tolles & Olson LLP, Sonnenschein, Bank Owned Services, and the Nevada Chapter of the Turnaround Management Association.
