June 24, 2019 | Toy companies are invited to participate in The Toy Association’s upcoming webinar, “Best Practices for Doing Business with a Retailer that has Declared Bankruptcy,” taking place on July 25 at 2 p.m. (Eastern). Registration is open for all toy professionals; the session is recommended for those who are involved in their company’s credit, finance, and legal functions.

This 75-minute webinar will provide manufacturers and distributors with strategies for doing business with a retailer in bankruptcy, with the goal of helping trade vendors minimize risk and maximize recovery. Jason M. Torf, a partner at Ice Miller LLP, will discuss the impact of debtor-in-possession financing on a vendor’s ability to get paid, cover types of credit enhancements that can be effective to enable vendors to continue the business relationship while hedging against unnecessary risk, and offer various proactive remedies that can enhance recovery during a customer's bankruptcy. The session will be moderated by Paul Vitale, The Toy Association’s executive vice president of finance & operations.

The webinar is free for Toy Association members and $49 for non-members. A recording of the session will be made available for those who are unable to participate live.

This is the second webinar of a two-part series. Part one, “Best Practices for Doing Business with a Financially-Troubled Retailer,” covered strategies for manufacturers and distributors dealing with troubled retailers before they enter the bankruptcy process. Toy Association members can view a recording of the webinar on the Association’s website.
