Retail bankruptcies are on the rise. Prepare to think outside the box to resolve these challenging cases.  In the retail chapter 11 bankruptcy case of teen retailer Aéropostale, a consortium of landlords, liquidators, and a licensing firm, was chosen as a winner over Aéropostale’s secured creditor, with an offer of $243.3 million in a deal that preserves part of the business.

Learn how this unique deal came together from those that helped organize the joint bid. Could this creative approach to a retail bankruptcy be duplicated? What criteria are necessary for this model to work? How can this exit strategy be used or adapted to the next retail chain bankruptcy?
