Banking, Finance and Capital Markets Commission Day

Online

18 November 2020 13:45 - 19:00 CET


In these challenging times clients are looking for financing more than ever either to bridge the financial shortages they are suffering or to benefit from business opportunities or government measures.

We are therefore honored to invite you to the virtual Banking Finance and Capital Markets Commission Day on 18 November 2020 including :

  • Participation of bankers and restructuring and insolvency administrators;
  • Discussions on issues encountered by lenders/creditors/struggled borrowers;
  • Commission’s meeting;
  • Social event.

We can assure you that participating in our Commission Day will feel like being in an in person event thanks to AIJA’s virtual platform that exceeded all expectations during the Annual Congress! Expect the BFCM Commission Day to raise to those high standards.

During our two sessions you will be informed and can share your views on the current changes in  financing and refinancing negotiations.  For more details on the schedule and the speakers, please go to the programme section of this page.

1. Impact of Covid 19 on (re)financing

The Covid-19 mayhem did not spare (re)refinance deals from a legal and a business perspective. How such changes in the business and legal environment has impacted commercial negotiations and agreements drafting? Insight on both aspects will be provided by our panelists, especially from the lenders’ side.

2. (Re)financing of companies in distress

The second session will focus on ways in which clients can obtain or choose insolvency proceeds as a means of refinancing. The panel will include a turnaround and insolvency administrator, an advisor in asset based lending and a real estate financing specialist from different jurisdictions who will give profound insights in various kinds of alternatives to manage expectations (as creditor) and obligations (as debtor).

Impact of COVID-19 on (re)financing facilities – legislation/specific clauses
During this pandemic period, not only borrowers are suffering from cash flow issues or other contingencies,  banks also are anxious about the potential provisions on their loan book to come in the near future. They have difficulties to foresee how deep the recession will be, which sectors and companies will suffer the most, which makes it nearly impossible to forecast credit facilities for any term.

At the same time banks (and private debt providers) have been experiencing loan volume dips due to helicopter money from governments poured into economies, have huge capacity to lend and need to lend and thus fight for the best assets squeezing margin and structures for best borrowers. They sometimes even tag-along with state aids to ensure the sustainability of a business until state aid is made available by according bridge loans to companies to avoid bankruptcy. However, this also may be considered as a risk of a viscious circle for banks potentially leading to lower returns (RORWA).

This webinar will focus on trends in the financing markets from the banks point of view throughout Europe, Latin and Northern America and will give you some tips on how private, quasi-sovereign and sovereign clients can take advantage of these challenging circumstances with the right legal advice.

Refinancing of companies in distress
During our session, our experienced international panel will take you on the  journey of a business struggling to navigate its finance needs in the current pandemic environment, exploring its finance or refinancing options, considering whether it can use real estate security as a lever or whether its lenders might be able to use that real estate as an enforcement tool whilst trying to understand the current restrictions on enforcement across various jurisdictions and asset classes because of COVID.  Finally our journey will conclude by envisaging a post enforcement scenario and considering current legal and practical issues that a company or lender may need to be aware of. All of this whilst we try to gaze into our crystal ball to determine what a post 2020 world might look like, with or without COVID.
