TMA Webinar examines retail outlook amid stubborn economic downturn

22
Feb '10
U.S. retailers stocked shelves with fewer items and hired less holiday help but that failed to ring up robust profits by year's end. The next Turnaround Management Association Webinar examines the 2010 retail outlook amid a stubborn economic downturn and record unemployment.

"What's in STORE for the Retail Industry in 2010?" will take place from noon to 1 p.m. Eastern on Thursday, February 25.

The Webinar will contrast the results of the 2009 holiday season with analysts' expectations, review tactics employed by retailers to boost profits, and identify retail categories likely to remain vulnerable.

Moderator:

Kenneth T. Latz, director, Conway MacKenzie Inc., New York, New York. An expert in turnaround and liquidity crisis management and distressed mergers and acquisitions, Latz has advised debtor and creditor groups in both Chapter 11 bankruptcy and out-of-court restructurings in the manufacturing, retail and consumer products industries, among others.

Mary Ann Domuracki, managing director, Financo, Inc., New York, New York. Domuracki's more than 25 years of experience blends accounting, advisory and operating management services.
