Invitation Link: http://www.cvent.com/d/8bqqnl/4W

The New York Private Equity Network ("NYPEN") and Antares Capital LP invite you to a panel discussion on the state of the Debt Capital Markets – Best Practices and Looking Towards the Horizon on Thursday, October 18th.

Ten years after the collapse of Lehman Brothers, private credit markets remain strong as we continue the longest bull market in history. Since 2008, the US Leveraged Loan market has more than doubled to $1.1 trillion, covenant lite share has reached record highs, defaults remain low and overall liquidity is driving issuer-friendly terms.  In this environment, what best practices should private equity sponsors employ for a successful financing and what leading indicators should we be monitoring to forecast the next downturn?

Industry leading panelists include:

  • Robert Buonanno – Warburg Pincus LLC
  • Peter Nolan – Antares Capital LP
  • Chris Solomon – Welsh, Carson, Anderson & Stowe

Specifically, our panel will explore:

  • The current state of the debt capital markets;
  • Changes in private credit market participants since 2008 and impact on financings;
  • The latest developments in credit financing, structure and pricing – including a relative view of credit quality, covenant lite, and leverage profiles;
  • Market technicals and liquidity drivers;
  • What to look for to predict the next cycle
