PURCHASE, N.Y., Feb. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- George Schultze, Founder and Managing Member of Schultze Asset Management, LLC ("SAM"), was a key speaker today in Harvard Business School's "Creating Value Through Corporate Restructuring" course taught by Professor Stuart Gilson. During this morning's two sessions, he discussed important risks and opportunities for distressed securities investors in mature industries as demonstrated by the Harvard Business Review case ("Arch Wireless, Inc.") which he helped develop based on his experiences investing in that company. "It's always a great honor to join Professor Gilson as a guest speaker in his class. Both the professor and students are outstanding and each year that I come in, I learn something new as well." Mr. Schultze added that today's capital markets show interesting similarities for post-reorganization securities to those evident when Arch Wireless restructured a number of years ago. Similarly, he noted that companies in many of today's very mature industries - such as publishing, yellow pages, and commodity production - could benefit from the extreme cost cutting and other shareholder-friendly actions that Arch management employed after it emerged from reorganization.
