ARLINGTON - Will the looming tsunami of loan maturities yield forbearance and re-negotiated terms or a raft of foreclosures? That will be one of the featured questions for a panel of real estate investment leaders and attorneys at the opening of The University of Texas at Arlington's 2009 Fall Roundtable Series Thursday, Oct. 8.

"The New World of Workouts: Legal Processes/Government Incentives/Regulatory Impacts" will be the first roundtable discussion at 6 p.m. at Texas Capital Bank, 2000 McKinney Ave., in Dallas. It is co-sponsored by ULI North Texas, an organization of practicing land use professionals and community leaders.

The 2009 Roundtable Series is organized by UT Arlington's Certificate in Asset Repositioning Program and will be held monthly in the seventh floor training room at Texas Capital Bank. The moderator will be Michael Buckley, visiting professor and director of UT Arlington's Certificate Program in Asset Repositioning and Turnaround Strategies.

Roundtable participants will discuss the challenges of today's economy, including frozen financing, deteriorating project revenues and grossly diminished returns on investments.

The panel will include:

Greg Kraus, managing director at Atlanta-based Invesco Real Estate, which is part of one of the world's largest and most diversified independent investment management firms.

Jay Small, vice president of KeyBank, part of Cleveland-based KeyCorp, one of the nation's largest bank-based financial services companies with assets of approximately $98 billion.

Peter McKee, an attorney and principal of the Securitization Group at Andrews Kurth in Dallas. McKee has extensive experience in real estate transactions.
