  • One particularly active area was the marine transportation sector, which has provided a bounty for restructuring advisers so far in 2013. Filings included STX Pan Ocean Co. Ltd. ( $6.7 billion), Excel Maritime Carriers Ltd. ( $2.7 billion), TMT USA Shipmanagement LLC ( $1.5 billion) and PT Berlian Laju Tanker Tbk ( $500 million). (Excel's figures are not part of this quarter's data, as it filed for Chapter 11 on July 1.)

"Obviously, shippers have had a tough time recently. Many of the advisers working with these troubled companies now will be undoubtedly showing up in our bankruptcy listings for later quarters," said Jeffrey Kanige, Editor in Chief of The Deal.
