From Our President:
We’re listening to you...
What’s Inside?
VP’s Corner..............................2
Upcoming Events................. 2-7
If you attended our January breakfast meeting, surely you
were as inspired as I to see such a collection of esteemed
practitioners, attorneys, lenders, and other rainmakers assembled to honor the team that contributed to the turnaround
of United Airlines, our large company Turnaround of the Year
winner for 2006. You may have noticed the more than 300
attendees providing unparalleled opportunities for networking
and connection. Surely you noted the quality of the proLisa Johnson
gram that focused on the specific events and strategies that
contributed to United’s turnaround, as well as the media presence at the event. The
joint planning of our 2006 Awards Committee, headed by Dave Mack, Mitch Rasky,
and Ken Yager, and our Breakfast Programs Committee, led by Harold Israel, Mark
Gertzof, and Duncan Bourne, raised the bar on our already successful breakfast
and awards programs to new heights. And there’s more to come! Our May program
will feature stories from other 2006 award winners—you’ll want to hear the unique
insights shared by the winning teams.
Meet the Committee..............21
But it’s more than our breakfast programs that are evolving to meet the needs of our
expanding membership. Since last summer, chapter leaders (under the direction
of Bill Hass) have been reviewing our strategic direction in an effort to assure that
chapter programming is responsive to the desires of our sponsors, members and
prospective members. We undertook a limited survey of our members in August that
identified key points of value for our members; among them, networking and access
to the people who drive deals in our markets. The chapter Steering Committee has
determined that broadening our reach among workout lenders, private equity groups
and hedge funds is consistent with that value proposition and consequently will be
our focus over the next several years. We have two important programs underway
that are designed to increase TMA’s reach to these important audiences:

Ray Anderson, Gerald Saltarelli and Dan Wikel are building a “Nuts and Bolts”
workshop to be held in April that will provide how-to’s on playing the distressed
investing game.
May brings the chapter’s first-ever hedge fund program, with leadership provided
by Paul Krantz and other members of the Inter-Chapter/Inter-Association Committee.
Is it a realistic goal that every workout lender, fund director, or equity sponsor join
TMA? Since most of the workout lenders I know would rather undergo a root canal
than hang out at a cocktail event, probably not. But we can expose them to our organization and the expertise of our members through compelling programming designed
with their needs in mind. And that, my fellow members, makes TMA compelling and
relevant to each of us.

VP’s Corner
“And in this corner”....
Thoughts from Joe Fobbe, VP-Communications
PNC Business Credit
Meet David Bogetz, past co-chair of the Membership Committee and currently Awards Committee co-chair
No fancy hotel this time. David and I got together at PotBellys
Joe Fobbe
on Adams and the Chicago River to talk a little about his past
and current roles within our chapter. I’ve consistently been
impressed with David’s constant enthusiasm for the TMA. I personally met David at a
TMA event over three years ago. We’ve enjoyed a growing personal and professional
relationship, sharing deal-looks back and forth and enjoying some time on the golf
course as well. Quality people like David are what our chapter is full of, and they are
the key to our success and growth. Please enjoy the exchange.
Who: David Bogetz
What: Awards Committee Co-Chair
Weight: More than represented on drivers license
Reach: Excuse my
Biceps: Smaller than my thighs
Forearms: Popeye-like (p.s. Robin Williams is David’s favorite entertainer; remember
Williams played Popeye about 25 years ago).
Fobbe: Can you briefly share with me your “TMA Career”? Please include how long
you’ve been a member and your first committee experience. Why did you get “involved?” Did someone mentor or pull you into a committee role?
Bogetz: I’ve been a member for four years. A long-time personal and professional
friend, Dave Mack (past president of our TMA chapter) kept encouraging me to attend
TMA events. (By the way, Jim Harney, another long-time TMA member introduced me
to Dave Mack back in the early 1980s). Dave (Mack), as many know, is a turnaround
professional and was frequently discussing deals with me and finally got me to show
up at an event. I was immediately impressed by how receptive people were to me as a
new member, making me feel welcome right away. I haven’t looked back.
F: Why was it important to you to become more involved in our chapter and do more
than just enjoy the networking events?
B: My attitude was (and still is with most things in life) why become a member if you’re
not going to be involved? I know many people have situations and demands that
preclude them from getting involved, but it’s my nature. I’m a Scout leader, a soccer
and baseball coach for my kids, etc. I got involved minute one when I joined the TMA
four years ago. I joined the membership committee and the next year I was a co-chair.
I was co-chair of this committee for two years (which is the maximum permitted) and
have now moved on to the Awards committee. I love it. To me it’s like having a large
dinner party and getting everyone involved with the preparation of the meal, not just the
eating. When we share the journey of preparing the meal, giving everyone a role, everyone enjoys the meal that much more. We interact more during the meal, joke about
what didn’t turn out, share in the credit for what did, etc. And that’s what we’re doing in
our chapter of the TMA.
F: What accomplishment has given you the greatest reward during your TMA tenure?
B: Being part of the membership committee when our chapter hit 1,000 members.
(Note: At this point of our conversation, David couldn’t help but put his membership hat
back on and remind me that with an average 80% renewal, we need 200 NEW members just to retain this coveted level) Also, our membership committee developed the

encouraging old members and new members to ask, of course,
“Ask you what?” This gives us the opportunity to talk to them
about either membership if they have a yellow (non-member)
name tag or talk about additional involvement for existing members.
F: Are you a Sox or Cubs fan? Do you care?
B: I care very much. Sox. I’m a south-sider. End of discussion.
F: What would you say to a new (or maybe even a not-so-new!)
member about the benefits and importance of becoming more
active in their chapter?
B: You’ll meet more people and have a more rewarding relationship with those individuals if you get involved. You’ll plan
an event together, be involved in a community service event
together, share a success (or maybe a failure), etc. By getting
involved you take a journey with other members. Do it; there’s
no downside. I must also say, as a practical matter, that it’s
important since we don’t have a full-time staff to do all the work.
Of course we have a great Chapter Administrator, but committees in this organization truly are integral to the functioning of the
F: What is your favorite television show?
B: 24. I’ve seen every episode, every year, all six of them.
Other miscellaneous nosey questions:
F: What’s your real job?
B: Founder and Managing Partner of Burnham Capital, a buyout
group focused on underperforming mid-sized companies. This
has kept me busy the past five years; prior to that I was the
founder and head of ABN AMRO’s private equity group for six
years in Chicago. All told, I have 20 years of private equity experience. Before that…you don’t want to know.
F: What was your favorite television show growing up?
B: Ray Rayner and Friends in the Morning. I watched it everyday
growing up.

B: It’s a Wonderful Life. I still get choked up at the end - I even
own the video.
F: All-time favorite Rocky scene?
B: The credits (i.e. when it’s over).
F: Little known fact you’d rather I not share with people?
B: I have no secrets. I’m proud to say I used to teach ballroom
F: What are your hobbies?
B: Golf, playing music, coaching my children in sports.
F: Anything you’d like to add, David?
B: Yes, even though Robin Williams is my favorite entertainer, I
like George Clooney. He’s a man’s man. But on a more serious
note: Get involved in your chapter. We always have first class
programs and we have great people with diverse experiences.
Share the journey, develop lasting relationships, and…have
some fun!
David, thank you for joining me and sharing your TMA experience. You, too, are a knockout!

Coming Soon: “Buying or Selling
an Underperforming or Distressed
By Ray Anderson, Burnham Venture Management Ltd.
This full-day, hands-on workshop will provide benefits to
intermediate and experienced buyout, restructuring and lending
professionals, and is likely to attract TMA members and nonTMA members involved in the Midwest buyout community.
The workshop, scheduled for April 20 in Chicago, will include
a brief overview of the state of the market, general buyout
issues and current issues relating to the acquisition or sale of
an underperforming or distressed company. Panel topics will
focus on the most pressing concerns among the turnaround,
restructuring and investing communities. A case study will help
participants apply what they learn at this event. The workshop
will be followed by a networking reception.
If you are a professional interested in distressed investing,
hedge fund management, investment banking, workouts, legal
issues or high yield investing, then this workshop is for you!

Cézanne to Picasso: Ambroise Vollard, Patron of the Avant-Garde
Editors’ Note: The following information on the exhibit is also
available at the The Art Institute of Chicago® Web site:
In 1887 Ambroise Vollard (1866–1939) arrived in Paris with few
contacts and no credentials to pursue a career as an art dealer.
He began representing
artists that were undervalued,
exhibiting them at a time
when many galleries were not
willing to take the risk. In 1895
Vollard hosted Cézanne’s
first solo exhibition, and in
doing so he made the artist’s
reputation as well as his own.
By the early 20th century,
Vollard had become the
principal dealer of artists
such as Paul Cézanne, Paul
Gauguin, and a number of
Fauve artists, and lent early
support to artists who are
well known today—Pierre
Bonnard, Aristide Maillol,
Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso,
and Edouard Vuillard—as
well as many who remain
relatively unknown. His
shrewd mind for business
and artistic sense made him
the leading contemporary art
dealer of his generation.
story of his relationships with artists whose work he exhibited
and sold. The exhibition underscores Vollard’s achievement
in promoting careers and styles to collectors, art critics, and
artists, who used his gallery as a meeting place to discuss
and buy modern art. Special galleries devoted to individual
artists feature works from Vollard’s most important exhibitions,
including paintings from
his groundbreaking 1895
Cézanne show, a neverbefore reassembled triptych
from Vollard’s 1896 Van
Gogh retrospective, and,
from Gauguin’s important
1898 exhibition of Tahitian
works, the masterpiece
Where Do We Come From?
What Are We? Where Are
We Going? lent by the
Museum of Fine Arts, Boston,
and on view for the first time
ever in Chicago.
The exhibition also highlights
Vollard’s importance as a
creative catalyst for artists
who, in response to his
urging, experimented in
making a variety of artworks
including color print albums,

TMA • Chicago/Midwest Chapter • March/April 2007 • Page Memorial Fund Committee Established; Input Requested
By Dave Mack, White Oak Group
Janet Intrieri’s sudden and tragic death last October touched many of us in the restructuring community. Shortly after the news was
learned, several close friends and colleagues of Janet’s, including Melanie Rovner Cohen, Faye Feinstein and Randy Patterson,
initiated discussions to establish a memorial fund in her name. TMA Chicago/Midwest Chapter President Lisa Johnson requested a
task force be organized to lead an effort to investigate the feasibility of establishing such a fund.
After doing some quick guerilla marketing and soliciting input from some key TMA board members, the concept has begun to take
definition. The next step is to both share the thoughts to date as well as solicit member input from the membership. Key elements of
the concept are outlined below:
General Memorial Fund – After many discussions, it was agreed that instead of a specific memorial fund for Janet Intrieri, create a
TMA memorial fund to recognize all TMA and restructuring industry colleagues who have passed. To make the memorial fund have
long term viability, it would require ongoing solicitations of contributions.
Use of Funds Contributed – The fund would be used for educational scholarships for family members of TMA Chicago/Midwest
members who apply and are selected based on merit. The model is the local Commercial Finance Associations’ Allen A. Preble
Memorial Scholarship Foundation.
Source of Funds – Contributions could come from TMA members, restructuring industry participants, firms, friends and relatives of
members who pass away in years to come. The chapter’s golf outing could be used to support the scholarship fund, or there could
be a specific event created to support the fund. The newly formed committee will be holding discussions with the Community Service
Committee and the Entertainment Committee to explore all alternatives.
Committee – We have formalized a TMA Memorial Scholarship Fund Committee to move the project toward a proposal for the
TMA Board of Directors to act on. Committee members include Dave Mack (co-chair), Randy Patterson (co-chair), Melanie Rovner
Cohen, Terry Gerlach, Dennis Harrison, Lisa Johnson (ex officio), Norm Newman, Mitch Rasky and Howard Samuels.
Though the high concept is now decided there are many details
that need to be worked through. Please give us your opinions,
questions, comments or suggestions. Feel free to contact
Committee Co-Chairs Dave Mack or Randy Patterson, or any of
the committee members listed here.

TMA • Chicago/Midwest Chapter • March/April 2007 • Page Milwaukee Post-Holiday Networking Party
Celebrates the Season, TMA and Museum
By Robert Ollhoff, M&I Bank
On January 25, after a beautiful sunny winter day, more than 100
TMA members, guests and friends gathered at the newest jewel
on Milwaukee’s lakefront – The Discovery World Museum. The
Milwaukee Program Committee hosted its third annual post-holiday
networking event at the
museum, a change from
the art museum where the
event was held the past
two years.
The Discovery World
Museum is a new facility
located on the lakefront
between the Summerfest
grounds and the art
Gene Arenson, Donald Shapiro, Robert Koe
museum. The evening
included guided tours
of the facility. The facility’s stated objective is to engage guests via
interactive displays which are sponsored by local businesses. In
addition to the displays, there is a “to scale” relief map of the Great
Lakes basin that shows how this ecosystem functions and a fullsized model of the Great
Lakes Sailing Schooner
“Challenger,” which can
be toured. The final area
viewed was the aquarium
which houses marine life
depicting the Great Lakes
to the Caribbean.
Attendees had the
option of going on
Les & Salli Peterson
the tour or continuing
their networking at the cocktail reception. Once all the tours were
complete, though, everyone was seated for a beautiful dinner.
Norm Newman delivered opening remarks and referenced many of
the upcoming events that will be occurring in Chicago. Milwaukee
Co-Chair, Mike Colloton also thanked everyone for attending
and extended special thanks to the 18 corporate sponsors of the
Milwaukee Programs who help make these types of special events
and programming opportunities available to our members. Remarks
concluded with Past President Bill Hass reminding everyone that
now is the time to think about becoming a Certified Turnaround
Professional (CTP) as the chapter will again be hosting its Body
of Knowledge review series this summer. Bill also encouraged
everyone to get involved on a committee to make their membership
more rewarding.
In short, the evening was another TMA Milwaukee success story.
From great networking to the delicious wine and food, it was an
enjoyable evening at a site that will become another trip destination
on Milwaukee’s lakefront.

January Breakfast Forum Features Awards Presentations and
Chapter Congratulates Award Winners for 2006
By Mark Leipold, Gould & Ratner LLP
The January 2007 Breakfast Forum was held at The Standard
Club in front of a capacity crowd, allowing the Awards
Committee and our chapter the opportunity to properly recognize
the award winners for 2006.
The Outstanding Contribution Award (formerly known as the
Individual Contribution Award) was given to Anu Singh of

to learn that Ban is a new
member! However, once you
accept this fact, it becomes
clear that he is deserving of
the Most Active New Member
of the Year Award. Ban has
exhibited the hard work and
interest in TMA since the
very beginning. He is the cochair of the Public Relations

on receiving this recognition.

SourceLink arose out of a strategy its parent company, Jordan
Industries, Inc., developed to form a national network of direct
mail and marketing companies. However, the whole ended
up being less than the sum of the individual parts, and the
strategy began to unravel. After pouring in millions of dollars
to support the group, Jordan decided enough was enough and
engaged Alvarez & Marsal to get SourceLink in shape to be sold.
However, Alvarez & Marsal were so effective that they were able
to improve SourceLink’s financials to the point that they operated
in the black, thus eliminating the need to sell the company.
Alvarez & Marsal was assisted by Sonnenschein Nath &
Rosenthal and senior management at SourceLink, including
Chris Behrens and Chris Averill.

Panel Discussion on Large Turnaround of the Year
The January Breakfast Meeting Takes Off – in a Big Way
By Mark Leipold, Gould & Ratner LLP
The year began with an exciting and well attended breakfast
meeting. More than 325 attendees, including members and
guests, were present at our first breakfast meeting of the
year. It was an opportunity for us to thank outgoing president
Bill Hass for all of his hard
work over the past year
and welcome incoming
president Lisa Johnson. It
was also an opportunity to
give a front row seat of one
of the most successful airline
reorganizations in history
– United Airlines. The program
was titled Large Turnaround of
the Year Award Winning Case
Study: United Airlines.
Upon accepting the award, Dan Wikel, managing director of
Huron Consulting Group, moderated a panel consisting of
Jake Brace, executive vice president, and Kathryn Mikells, vice
president of financial planning and analysis and past treasurer
from UAL Corporation; and from
Kirkland & Ellis, former partner
Jamie Sprayregen (currently
managing director of Goldman
Sachs), and partners Marc
Kieselstein and David Seligman.
The panel was rounded out by
Ira Wolfson, vice president of
Rothschild, Inc.

Asset-based Lending: Leveraging your assets to grow
your business
When it comes to running your business, your ability to take
advantage of the opportunities before you often depends on the
value of your assets. For many credit providers, who simply run
the numbers for your business, assets are nothing more than cold
numbers on a balance sheet. PNC Business Credit has a different
perspective. We believe your company has strengths that may
never appear on a balance sheet or an income statement. Unique
attributes that cannot be simplified to a few ratios.
As one of the nation’s leading asset-based lenders, PNC Business
Credit is particularly proud of our commitment to helping companies
throughout the Upper Midwest to take advantage of their assets and
cash flow to grow their businesses. We deliver flexible and creative
financing solutions to support growth, mergers and acquisitions,
recapitalizations and turnarounds. Underwritten transactions range
from $5 million to $250 million and PNC can provide overadvance
term loans and second-lien loans for additional liquidity at
competitive prices.
PNC Business Credit has built a reputation for providing an
extremely high level of service, responding flexibly to our clients’
needs. With offices across the country, we work where our clients
work, offering both the convenience of local decision makers and

The Value of TMA Membership
By Randall Wright Patterson, Lake Pointe Partners LLC
Randy Patterson, 1998
Having been a member of the TMA
since 1990, it’s interesting to look back
over the last 18 years and see how
far this association of turnaround and
restructuring professionals has come.
Since its beginning in 1989, TMA has
been about networking, education, and
advancing industry awareness in the
general business community. In 1993,
TMA expanded its mission to include
Diversity of Membership – One of the unique characteristics
about TMA is its diversity of membership, including lenders,
insolvency accountants, turnaround practitioners, bankruptcy
attorneys and that age-old “other” category that includes
academics, auctioneers, investors, investment bankers,
private equity, and liquidators, to name a few. As a byproduct of this composition, three out of four professionals
that you meet at a TMA function will likely not be your
competitor, rather a potential referral source.
Opportunities to Expand Your Network – With more than 35
events planned by the Chicago/Midwest Chapter alone, there
are many opportunities to expand your network. Add the
activities of the other 39 regional chapters across the globe
and the opportunities seem unlimited. And there’s something
for everyone with events like Martini Night, Texas Hold’em
tournaments, women’s networking functions, regional and
international conferences, museum and Millenium Park tours,
golf outings, fund raisers, community involvement projects
and a host of educational forums.
Get Involved – And while it’s always nice to meet a potential
referral source for the first time and add his or her contact
information to your database, referrals come from people
who prefer to do business with people they know well, trust
and have worked together in the past. So why not join a
committee and work side-by-side with potential referral
sources? There are hundreds of committees internationally
that are always looking for members to help. In the Chicago/
Midwest Chapter alone there are 18 committees covering
membership, education, entertainment, certification,
community relations and women’s group, just to name a few.
World-Class Quality – Over its 18-year history, TMA has
enhanced the quality of its educational programs to worldclass levels. Whether its Rudi Guiliani as the keynote
speaker at an international conference talking about crisis
management in New York following the 9/11 attacks, or
a local chapter panel on the turnaround of United Airlines
featuring Chicago’s own nationally recognized restructuring
professionals, the topics are usually fascinating, thought
provoking, insightful, timely and educational.
Comprehensive Content – Just at the local chapter level
alone, the amount of educational content is extensive.
General topics include economic forecasts and industry
trends, legislative updates, general management training,
technical training, certification training and the like. In an
industry that has turnaround and restructuring professionals
looking for education focused on their specific needs, TMA
fits the bill.
Advancing Industry Awareness
Having been in the business for 18 years, I recall the days not
that long ago where other professionals had not even heard
of turnaround practitioners, let alone how such people could
assist underperforming and financially troubled businesses.
Thanks to the hard work of the TMA at the local, national
and international levels, the understanding of turnaround and
restructuring advisors (including all insolvency professions)
and their role in corporate renewal is known to most in the
general business community today.
Why Certification? – There used to be an expression that “the
best thing about being a banker, lawyer or accountant, is that
if you ever got fired, you could always add “inc.” after your
name and become a turnaround guy.” This tongue-in-cheek
reality led to the demand for certification, and in 1993, the
Association of Certified Turnaround Professionals (ACTP)
and its certification program became a reality.
Benefits of Certification – The demands of the certification
process require that you meet minimum educational,
experience and testing standards. This can be a key
differentiator in engagement opportunities. Further, continuing
education requirements mandate that we are current with
what’s happening in our industry and are constantly prepared
to address challenges from a technically current perspective.
Interestingly, more and more firms are also looking to the
certification process to augment their risk management
It’s nice to have seen TMA grow into the fine organization
that it is today. I take great pride in the small role I played
as chapter president in 1992 and 1993, building on the
foundation of those that preceded me. More impressive is
the work of those since then who have taken TMA to the
next level. Today, TMA is the only international not-for-profit
association dedicated to corporate renewal and turnaround
management, and has 7,800 members in 40 regional
chapters. Now that’s a story.

The Effect of the Bankruptcy Code Amendments on Initial Viability Analyses
By Melanie Rovner Cohen and Faye B. Feinstein, Quarles & Brady LLP
Editors’ Note: The following article was printed in the June 2006 TMA Insert
of Crain’s Chicago Business; it is being reprinted with the permission of the
Nothing stays the same. In 1978 when the Bankruptcy Reform
Act first became effective, we believed, based on history, that we
had a 40-year tenure under that statute; but we were wrong.
Although most of the 2005 changes to the Bankruptcy Code
affect consumer filings, these amendments have changed the
balance of power, reduced time frames, increased potential
costs, eliminated court discretion from critical decisions and have
potentially made business reorganizations more difficult and
costly and less likely to succeed.
An initial viability analysis requires a determination of whether
the potential benefits of a bankruptcy filing can be utilized in
accomplishing an operational restructuring. Whether you are
or represent a landlord, lender or struggling business, changes
in the bankruptcy law will impact your strategy. A serious
“bankruptcy audit” should be undertaken as early as possible,
since a bankruptcy case once filed will move much more quickly
through the courts. This is true since creditors may well take
your choices away by filing an involuntary petition in order to
take advantage of the changes to the Bankruptcy Code which
have tipped the balance of power to the creditor side.
Exclusivity in presenting a plan is now limited to 18 months,
and for a small business (defined as a business with less than
$2 million in debt), 180 days. In a single asset real estate case,
which now includes projects with unlimited secured debt (as
opposed to the previous $4.0 million ceiling) a plan must be
filed or the debtor must make adequate protection payments
within 90 days. No longer can a debtor file for relief, rely on the
automatic stay and take a “wait and see” approach. Debtors
must now determine whether to assume or reject a lease of nonresidential real property within 120 days of the filing, with only
one 90-day extension for cause, unless the lessor agrees to a
further extension. Planning must be done pre-bankruptcy and
effected if appropriate, in bankruptcy.
Cash needed to fund the chapter 11 is also potentially increased
by changes relating to requirements for utility payments.
Unless the utility agrees otherwise, within 30 days of the
commencement of the case, the debtor must furnish assurance
to the utility in the form of a cash deposit, letter of credit,
certificate of deposit, surety bond, prepayment or other agreed
Whatever your position is vis-à-vis the debtor, as you first see
signs of weakness, evaluate your position on contracts, security
interests, preferences, fraudulent conveyances and real estate
interests, including leases, in order to timely assess viability and
to prepare a strategy which will afford you and your client the
greatest likelihood of success.
Melanie Cohen and Faye Feinstein are both partners with
Quarles & Brady LLP in Chicago. They can be reached via email
