Covenant Erosion In Debt Documents - A/k/a Trap Doors

Thursday, Jan 21 2021 - 05:00 PM

Our moderator for this webinar will be David Morse, a partner at Otterbourg, P.C., New York, NY. His panelists will be announced at a later date.
The panel will discuss recent trends in debt documentation which have resulted in the loosening of certain restrictive covenants and which, in some cases, have allowed "creative" borrowers to unilaterally transfer value from existing lenders through the incurrence of priming debt or to transfer assets to non-borrower entities. Lessons will also be drawn from bankruptcy cases in which the interpretation of such eroded covenants has resulted in significant swings in the recovery available to lenders.
