9:30 am - DEALMAKERS IN MEZZANINE FINANCING TODAY: SENIOR LENDERS IN THE MARKET
  • Negotiations in deal making: is it a good time to be a borrower or a lender in the current market?
    • The cost of money and coupons getting lower, compressing spreads in a fixed rate market – are you getting rewarded for your risk?
    • Finding leverage, relative value, and junior investments
  • Follow the trail of funding and learn where it comes from, where the capital is going, and what the returns typically look like as the primary lending markets are improving
  • Weakening covenant structure and price – risk, cash flow sweeps, liquidity in the market
  • Are rates going to increase? What does that mean in terms of protecting yourself? Are markets returning to old structures?
  • Examine reactions by sponsors in the current mezzanine financing market, and how the state of investments has changed
  • Finding liquidity, improving value and getting out of debt with even more attractive terms – today’s opportunities vs. 2010
    • CMBS and legacy loans
