Structure, content, scope for design and stumbling blocks.
This seminar deals with the structure, the regulatory content and the design options for bilateral bank loans and syndicated financing agreements.

• Effects of external influences on loan negotiations.
• Contract types and characteristics of various financing instruments.
• Structural aspects.
• Mapping of the corporate strategy in a sustainable financing structure.
• Expectations of external investors.
• Central vs. local financing structures.
• Limits of structural subordination (subordination).
• Bilateral vs. syndicated financing.
• Development of an optimal financing structure for a sample company.
• Components of credit agreements.
• Development of loan agreements.
• Interaction and interaction of different contracts.
• Differences between investment grade and non-investment grade.
• Design options for the most important contractual clauses.
• Critical parts of the contract.
• Freedom and scope for action.
• Structure and nature of the syndicated loan.
• General contract structure.
• Role of the banks involved.

Group of participants:
Employees and executives who work in or are responsible for corporate finance, conduct financing negotiations with banks and want to acquire knowledge of loan agreements that goes beyond the basics.

After a brief introduction to the current market environment and possible external influences on financing negotiations, fundamental aspects of the financing structure are dealt with first (central vs. local, bilateral vs. consortium). Then the contents of various loan agreements will be dealt with, with particular emphasis on design options, interactions and stumbling blocks.
