Titan International Covenants Analysis and Updated Tear Sheet

Updating our Titan International covenants analysis, the Americas Covenants by Reorg team took a deeper dive into the global wheel, tire and undercarriage industrial manufacturer and supplier after their ABL Facility was updated to include an anti-hoarding provision.

Additionally our updated Titan International covenants analysis includes a breakdown and an in-depth investigation into the company’s new secured 2028 notes, the amended ABL agreement, the potential divestiture of the ITM business and more.

Reorg on the Record; Spotlight on EMEA (04/28/21)

Written by Richard Woolley, Editor, EMEA Core Credit || The high volume of new issuances in the first quarter has continued during the first weeks of the second. Our primary pipeline puts the total value of loans and bonds currently in the market at €11.4 billion and our watchlist features no fewer than 39 companies with near-term maturities, 15 possible LBOs and four acquisition financing candidates. Sources expect the market to stay hot until at least mid-May. Among the biggest deals in April was a €2.1 billion senior note offering by Nexi Capital, with proceeds to refinance existing debt. Elsewhere, Pfleiderer issued €750 million in sustainability-linked senior notes, Oriflame priced €250 million of floating rate senior secured notes and $550 million of senior secured notes, and Dufry printed €725 million and 300 million Swiss francs in senior notes. All of these deals were the subject of illuminating analyses by the EMEA Covenants team. The healthy pipeline means investors now have plenty of options and some deals are a less obvious fit. This was one factor in Picard’s decision to pull a €1.71 billion bond offering last week, alongside the relatively long runway the group has to refinance its senior notes due 2024. For now, sources expect it to remain a sellers’ market in Europe, and our reporters and analysts will be kept busy covering new deals.  || Sign up for our weekly updates here.
Surgery Partners Term Loan Refinancing – Covenants Analysis

Surgery Partners Term Loan Refinancing – Covenants Analysis

Analyzing the Surgery Partners term loan refinancing plan, our Americas Covenants team discusses the MFN protections under the company’s credit agreements as they seek to raise $125M in incremental term loans after facing economic difficulties during the Covid-19 pandemic. The incremental term loans which were incurred in 2020, as well as their repayments, both call attention to the risks associated with most favored nations (MFN) protections in credit agreements across the board. In a recent article, our team discussed the increased abilities for lenders to begin to break down the strength of MFN protections in terms of their length, scope and pricing. For Surgery Partners these trends continue to prevail. Click through to read our full covenants analysis on the Surgery Partners term loan refinancing situation and how MFN mechanics in credit agreements may have allowed borrowers to exploit these protections at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic: https://reorg.com/surgery-partners-term-loan-refinancing/
Analysis: Offshore Value in Sritex SG Subsidiaries Potentially Valuable to Secondary Investors

Analysis: Offshore Value in Sritex SG Subsidiaries Potentially Valuable to Secondary Investors

The recent filing of “defensive” applications by PT Sri Rejeki Isman Tbk (Sritex) subsidiaries, Golden Legacy Pte Ltd. and Golden Mountain Textile and Trading Pte Ltd., in the Singapore court for a moratorium under section 64 of the Insolvency, Restructuring and Dissolution Act 2018 (IRDA) comes as the company faces increasing difficulties with its creditors in Indonesia with one of its (potentially friendly) trade creditors having filed a petition to initiate PKPU against Sritex. If the full debtor-in-possession moratorium is granted by the Singapore courts, this would prevent noteholders under Sritex’s $150 million 6.875% due 2024 notes issued by Golden Legacy from taking enforcement action under the notes -- which in turn would prevent noteholders from being able to take recovery action around potential offshore value.
