The aim of this paper is to provide a comparative analysis of out-of-court alternatives in Latin America. It focuses on the importance of these alternatives to restore financial viability to troubled companies in a scenario of recurrent regional instability. The importance of out-of-court restructuring alternatives lies on their expediency and, to a certain extent, their predictability. This objective of this paper is to contribute to the discussion on expedited corporate debt restructuring in Latin America by providing a thorough up to date regional analysis on pre-packs, pre-negotiated deals and private workouts. The use of expedited debt-restructuring alternatives allows debtors and creditors to negotiate the terms of an agreement in a shorter period of time than traditional reorganization procedures, minimizing the problem of holdout creditors and avoiding long and costly procedures.
