In our latest 9fin Educational, we look at key areas of investor focus in European leveraged loan agreements, how terms may differ in the US market, and where we are seeing consistent pushback against some of the more borrower-friendly features. Our focus here is on loan agreements which include a high yield bond style incurrence covenant package, as the majority of the €250m+ TLB market. This is a high level review of covenants and features in leveraged loan agreements; we refer you to our other 9fin Educational pieces for a detailed explanation of individual covenants (e.g. debt, restricted payments and asset sales) and other features.
