Global Transportation Finance Shareholder John F. Imhof Jr. will moderate a panel on private equity, restructuring, M&A and industry consolidation as it relates to the shipping industry at the 14th Annual Capital Link International Shipping Forum. This year, the Forum will be held as a digital conference on March 30 and 31, 2020.

Mr. Imhof's session will touch on recent and possible future trends for private equity investment in shipping, including private equity’s involvement in restructurings, private equity exits from shipping, and how exits are leading to increased M&A and consolidation. Mr. Imhof and his panelists will also discuss the growth of private-equity backed lending platforms, emerging opportunities for new private equity investment and the effects of COVID-19 on the future of shipping and new investment in shipping.

The Capital Link International Shipping Forum provides a comprehensive review and outlook of the various shipping markets, made more relevant by the release of companies' annual results. In addition, it discusses topics of critical relevance to the industry such as restructuring and consolidation, the various channels and methods of raising capital as well as the impact of new technologies and trading routes. Vedder Price is proud to sponsor this event.
