PURCHASE, N.Y., Feb. 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- George Schultze, Founder and Managing Member of Schultze Asset Management, LP ("SAM"), was a guest speaker today in Harvard Business School's Creating Value Through Corporate Restructuring course taught by HBS Senior Lecturer Kristin Mugford. During the two sessions, he discussed both potential risks and opportunities for distressed securities investors in mature industries as demonstrated by the Harvard Business Review case ("Arch Wireless, Inc."), which Mr. Schultze helped to develop based on his experiences investing in that company.
"It's an honor to return to Harvard Business School and to join Kristin again as a guest speaker. Both Kristin and her students are terrific, and each year that I participate, I learn something new," said Mr. Schultze.
"Today's capital markets show interesting similarities for distressed companies to those evident when Arch Wireless restructured a number of years ago," he added. Mr. Schultze also noted that companies in many of today's distressed industries - such as energy and mining - could benefit from the extreme cost cutting and other shareholder-friendly actions that Arch's management undertook after it emerged from reorganization.
