Abstract

The newly appointed CEO of an important high-technology company in Thailand must lead the company through a complicated debt restructuring. Due to the collapse of the Thai currency, the company's debt burden, like that of most Thai companies, has skyrocketed because it has borrowed heavily in U.S. dollars. The new CEO, who is a U.S. citizen, must restructure the company under the recently revised, and largely untested, new Thai bankruptcy law. The new law allows troubled companies to reorganize their businesses following an approach that is similar, but not identical, to that practiced in the United States under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code.
