– Introduction: a brief summary of the firm and its industry (history, main products, innovations, etc.)
– Key episodes of distress: discuss recent or historical episodes in which this firm or its industry had major losses due to gov. interventions, macroeconomic events, exchange rate volatility (do NOT focus only on 2008 or the 2020 Market Crashes)
