The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly affected the operations of companies across various industries and their ability to service their debt and continue paying suppliers. Aviation, tourism and entertainment were the first industries to immediately suffer the consequences of social distancing and reduced demand and revenues, but other industries are bound to soon follow. Like other crises, the COVID-19-related drop in demand has resulted and will continue to condition in complex debt restructurings and opportunities to acquire strategic assets at discount prices. Our panel of prominent Brazilian-American legal and financial leaders will discuss how the lessons learned from successful and failed restructurings and distressed M&A transactions from the past can pave the way for U.S. and other foreign investors to properly protect their exposure to Brazilian companies in distress. The panel will also discuss how to capitalize on opportunities to make significant profits from a company’s turnaround .

Sula -- Mitch McConnell continues to play politics by holding up coronavirus relief legislation which includes funding to protect our elections before November.
McConnell's motive? Undermining our elections this year is the first step to putting conservative map manipulators in charge of the redistricting process next year. He should care about the democratic right to vote, but it seems he only cares about holding onto power.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi knows this. And has said that she will not let McConnell continue to avoid passing legislation to protect our elections and the livelihood of millions of Americans during this pandemic.
Speaker Pelosi has shown time and time again that she'll keep her promise. And now, she's refusing to cave on key provisions of coronavirus relief legislation including commonsense funding to make voting safe and accessible amidst a pandemic.
Let her know you appreciate that she's not backing down from McConnell and that you have her back as she continues to fight to expand access to safe voting. McConnell doesn't care if less people vote, as long he can maintain conservative power. Securing a fair, safe, and accessible vote in November may be a key first step to achieving fair maps in 2021 -- but it's also the right thing to do.

Fitch Ratings' Global Sovereign Conference returns this year with a series of virtual events featuring our expert analysts who will be discussing key global and regional sovereign credit developments. Sessions will start with the Global Macroeconomic Outlook with Brian Coulton, Chief Economist, followed by the Global Sovereign Outlook presented by Tony Stringer, Chief Operating Officer, Sovereigns and Supranationals Group.
Policy responses to and rating implications of the coronavirus will feature prominently in this year’s Conference.

Global Sovereign Update
US and Canada: Crisis response and rating outlook
Latin America: Persistent negative rating pressures
Challenges to post-pandemic economic recovery and fiscal consolidation
