Negotiating Loan Agreements
Review key elements of sample loan agreements for both bank standard loan agreements and private placements. Using case studies and group projects designed by the instructor, learn how to assess where credit risks are in individually proposed loans and how to develop loan agreements that mitigate those risks. Topics include types of loans, financial ratios, structural subordination, covenants, the indenture, the offering memorandum, default, cross-default, business risk, cash flow projections, balance sheet projections, and asset preservation. Also, discuss the impact of the economy and the market on loan negotiations. The course consists of a combination of lectures, group projects, and case studies.
