BECOME A PETITION MEMBER
PETITION provides analysis, commentary and curated links about restructuring and bankruptcy. We discuss disruption, from the vantage point of the disrupted. Fortunehighlighted us in “The Ultimate Guide to the Best Business Newsletters.”
Our Members are a highly targeted group of investors, lawyers, investment bankers, consultants, C-suiters, board-of-director-types, and others trying to keep up with rapid change and the disruption that comes with it.
Why do professionals from these and many other shops become Members? They use our insights to, among other things, be more conversant in the market, source business, impress potential mates in bars (you know it’s true), and develop advisory strategies. So, basically, our Members are taking mental PEDs and you're not. Pro tip: you might want to level the playing field by joining.
Some recent newsletters include:
Toys R Us is a Dumpster Fire - We were the first to say the toy retailer could liquidate rather than reorganize as a going concern;
Amazon is a Beast - our discussion of how the behemoth's acquisition of Pillpack could be accretive to its credit card business;
Footwear Brands Reap Heaps of VC Investment - our analysis of the large volume of distressed footwear retail and the disruptive causes behind it;
What to Make of the Credit Cycle - our ongoing series on macroeconomic trends;
Misplaced Optimism in Retail - our hot take on issues confronting L Brands’ Victoria's Secret and calling a continued stock decline. It is now one of the worst performing stocks in the S&P 500 this year;
Don't. Mess. With Daisy. - our pet-oriented series discussing distress in Petco, Petsmart & Philips Pet Food & Supplies; and
Tops, Toys, Amazon & Owning the Robots - our discussion of the plight of the working man given the rise of Amazon and the fall of Toys R Us.
We send two newsletters a week: a robust a$$-kicking “Member Email” on Sundays and a shorter “Freemail” on Wednesdays. To receive our shorter Wednesday “Freemail", you don't need to do anything other than subscribe. Just sit there, bill hours, and inwardly pose existential questions. You'll be in our group of free riders...we mean, uh, "freemailers."
To receive our more robust a$$-kicking Members’-only Sunday briefing, you must become a Member. Membership ($299/person-per-year) gets you:
the Wednesday and Sunday briefings,
access to our Archives; and
first look at any new initiatives we can get off the ground (e.g., new content distribution channels, etc.).
Our subscriptions are designed for individuals but we'll accommodate group subscriptions (of 10+ people). Email us for details: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’d like to thank some firms that became Founding Member Groups of PETITION: Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP, AlixPartners LLC, SierraConstellation Partners, Sidley Austin LLP, Gavin/Solmonese, GLC Advisors and others.
