From Issuance to Workout: Opportunities and Risks in Times of Volatility
Fri Jun 9, 2023 3:17 pm Distressed Debt  Leveraged Finance  Product News

Earlier this week, the Reorg team hosted a live, in-person panel event in New York! The event, titled From Issuance to Workout: Opportunities and Risks in Times of Volatility, featured two panels covering the most topical items in the leveraged finance and distressed credit markets.

Following an introduction by Sarah Gefter, Reorg’s Managing Director – Americas Credit, the first panel took the stage.

This panel, moderated by Reorg’s SVP & Head of Research – HY, covered “Issuer Funding Trends in the Current Credit Climate” included the following experts:

  • Chris Bonner | Head of Leveraged Capital Markets – Goldman Sachs
  • Jane Lawrence | Portfolio Manager – Sound Point
  • Michael Nechamkin | Chief Investment Officer – Octagon
  • Brian Ziemer | Senior Vice President – Antares Capital

The conversation explored the following questions:

  • What are the key factors causing a shift to unitranche issuance in the types of deals that are typically funded in the broadly syndicated loans and/or high-yield bond market?
  • Is this a sustaining trend? If so, why? If not, what are key steps investors in BSL and/or bond markets are taking to claw back issuer business.
  • And finally, what is the role syndicates are playing in the evolving financing structures, and how are they adapting?

The second panel covered “Distress in Times of Volatility” and was moderated by Adelene Lee, SVP & Managing Editor, Americas Core Credit, and included the following expert speakers:

  • Ana Alfonso | Partner, Business Reorganization & Restructuring – Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP
  • Christopher Dunlop | Managing Director, Capital Markets – Houlihan Lokey
  • Ari Lefkovits | Managing Director – Lazard
  • Giac Picco | Managing Director – KKR
  • Phil Saliba | Managing Director, Head of Restructuring Capital Markets – Deutsche Bank

Following a tumultuous year, the panel explored some of the most important questions restructuring professionals are facing in the current market:

  • What impact has market volatility had on distressed companies’ options?
  • Where are distressed debt funds deploying capital, and where are the sweet spots?
  •  Is creditor-on-creditor violence set to continue? How has this changed market relationships and dynamics between lenders and borrowers? And are lenders more able to employ more restrictive covenant language?
  • What are the long-term implications of bank bailouts on the market and distressed opportunities?

The content was followed by an open cocktail and networking reception, where the team was thrilled to connect more with our incredible roster of speakers, and clients from over 50 organizations!

Thank you to all of our event participants and attendees for making it an incredible evening of learning, connection, and fun!

Throughout the year, Reorg hosts webinars bringing together industry professionals to discuss themes in the performing, distressed, restructuring and post-reorg credit markets.

Chapter 11 filings year to date have already exceeded filings in the same period in 2020, including six chapter 11s with more than $1 billion in liabilities. As the list of strategies to effectuate restructurings grow and debtors teeter between freefall and prearranged or prepackaged bankruptcies, Reorg has analyzed the effect that different cases have had on fees that debtors pay to advisors, both legal and financial.

In this webinar, the Reorg Team analyzed advisor opportunities and fee data from the past year, broke down the largest dealmakers of the last twelve months, and shared how advisors, investors, and other industry leaders can leverage the same information on Credit Cloud to meet their unique business needs.

Reorg discussed how different cases affect advisor fees and strategies that certain advisors have employed to alter fees. In addition, Reorg compared fees to debtors’ prepetition capital structures to understand effects on investor recoveries.

While innovative, disruptive technologies like ChatGPT are able to provide answers based on previous events, it lacks the forward-thinking ability credit professionals need to make fast, strategic business decisions.

As incidences of bankruptcy and restructuring rise, access to future-oriented technologies are more important than ever. Reorg’s Restructuring Risk Index (RRRITM) moves beyond data integration by providing a scoring mechanism to predict the likelihood that U.S. publicly traded companies enter restructuring.

Source: Reorg, Credit Cloud

RRRI is powered with data on over 2,000 public companies, continuous analysis of hundreds of company financial statements and documents, qualitative industry expertise from Reorg internal experts and cutting-edge data science technology. By providing users with proprietary numerical indicator, from 0-100, that reflects the probability of any U.S. public company filing for bankruptcy, restructuring professionals can dynamically analyze and forecast future restructuring situations.

RRRI is available exclusively through Credit Cloud. To learn more, request a trial.
