Module 2: Debt Restructuring and Distressed Loans

Day Four

The Credit Crunch, which has been in full swing since the summer of 2007, has exacerbated financial stresses within a wide range of industry sectors. Many analysts, the Ratings Agencies included, suggest that corporate default rates have picked up significantly such that we are likely to see a minimum 6% default rate this year in leveraged loans – in 2009, the momentum suggests that the rate could approach double figures. The Chancellor of the Exchequer has indicated that the UK could well be facing the most difficult economic circumstances of the past 60 years – and this period includes the secondary banking crisis of the early 1970s, the deep restructuring issues of the mid- 1980s and the deep recession of 1989-92 which led to Sterling’s withdrawal from the EMU!

These factors mean that corporate lenders need to enhance their corporate debt restructuring skills. This course is suitable for senior managers and director’s relationship, credit and loan workout roles.
