Restructuring and Distressed Assets in Brazil:
Seizing Opportunities and Avoiding Disaster
Thursday, August 6
9:00 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. (NY Time)
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 .

Global Ecommerce Sales Will Decelerate This Year; TikTok vs. America and TV Ads in Console Games

Ecommerce has been a bright spot among retail channels during the coronavirus, as consumers became reliant on digital transactions amid physical store closures and fear of infection. However, the impact on ecommerce retail spending has not been felt evenly across the world.

Asia-Pacific and North America have led the regional totals for both brick-and-mortar and ecommerce sales, followed by Western Europe. Due in part to China's dominance, Asia-Pacific has gained a significant lead in ecommerce with 62.6% share, over North America and Western Europe, who are expected to have shares of 19.1% and 12.7%, respectively.

While some regions experienced tremendous growth in certain sectors of retail, we have adjusted our ecommerce estimates down to $3.914 trillion, as the deceleration of global retail in 2020 has surely impacted overall global retail sales.

The Brazilian-American Chamber of Commerce of Florida and the BACCF Banking & Finance Committee promote a Webinar presented by Paulo Hartung.

Paulo César Hartung Gomes is a Brazilian economist and politician. Currently without a party, he was governor of the state of Espírito Santo from January 1, 2003 until December 31, 2010, and from January 1, 2015 until December 31, 2018, being succeeded by Renato Casagrande.

The experienced economist will bring the topic of discussion: “Brazil”: Conjuncture, Contexts and Perspectives Post Pandemic.


Paulo Hartung holds a degree in Economics from the Federal University of Espírito Santo (UFES). When he was a student at UFES, Hartung was elected the first president of the Central Directorate of Students (DCE) of the University. The economist won the mandate of Federal Deputy (1991 to 1995), with the largest vote within the Municipality of Vitória, capital of the state. His relevant performance made him assume the position of deputy leader of the Brazilian Social Democracy Party in the Chamber of Deputies, whose leadership was exercised by José Serra, then a deputy for São Paulo.

The webinar will be guided by the issues that most drive an economic crisis in the current situation of the pandemic crisis COVID 19:

Political and Economic Scenario

Global Scenario and Brazil - Post-pandemic
Scheduled for July 30, from 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM
