In 1997 and 1998, the world encountered its worst financial crisis since the Second World War. For East Asia in particular, it was a devastating blow that threatened to reverse a whole generation of progress in two short years. Much has been written about how governments and supranational bodies should have coped with this crisis and what they can do to prevent such a recurrence in the future.

This book is distinct; it focuses, instead, on the impact of such crises on the corporate sector, particularly:

  • How a national economic crisis impacts companies in the affected country
  • How companies respond to such a crisis
  • How companies can evaluate key strategic options in an economic environment that is changing every day
  • How companies undertake drastic financial and business portfolio restructuring in a crisis environment
  • Finally, what determines the vulnerability of a company to a national economic crisis?

This book seeks to find answers to such questions through case studies of six East Asian companies located in Indonesia, Thailand, South Korea and Malaysia, and belonging to varied industrial sectors: banking, finance, natural resources, and a diversified conglomerate. The actions of the companies encompassed corporate and financial restructuring, investment banking, financing decisions and derivatives. As backdrop, the book presents a brief economic history of the four countries involved covering the period till the 1997 meltdown. Individual discussions on each of the six companies in the last part of the book provide both a framework of analysis, and information and insights about how these companies actually managed under the economic crisis; raising issues and offering lessons that are relevant to corporate finance managers and chief executives world-wide.
