Learn about leveraged finance credit agreements and the legal issues that arise when working on leveraged loans.
CHICAGO (PRWEB) October 14, 2018
Debt has always been an important part of the capital structure of many corporations and private equity portfolio companies. At some point, most companies will need to make the decision as to whether and how to incur debt, either in the ordinary course of business or to fund acquisitions or other transformative transactions.
This Financial Poise LEVERAGED FINANCE 2018 webinar series focuses on the leveraged finance market in particular, meaning borrowings by companies whose credit rating is (or would be if rated) below investment grade (that is, a rating below BBB- by S&P / Baa3 by Moody’s). The leveraged finance market over time has developed its own set of market conventions and terms that may be unfamiliar to traditional lenders. Although this series familiarizes the audience with the fundamentals, apart from the two episodes on commitment papers, each other episode can be viewed independently as a stand-alone lesson.
The third episode of the series, Navigating Credit Agreements, airs on October 18th at 3:00 PM CST (Register Here) and features Moderator Lewis Grimm of Jones Day. He is joined by Phil Buffington of Adams & Reese LLP, Geoffrey Goodman of Foley & Lardner LLP, and James Snyder of Sidley Austin LLP.
The leveraged lending market has developed its own set of market terms and conventions, many of which do not exist outside of this market. This webinar gives a basic overview of leveraged finance credit agreements and the legal issues that arise when working on leveraged loans.
