During this session, we will discuss new lending trends that have developed for middle market and small companies following the financial crisis. For example, nonbank lenders, including business development companies, and certain bank lenders are providing these companies with more tailored financing options. These financing alternatives may include mezzanine financing, PIK features, equity kickers, second lien loans or unitranche loans. The speakers will discuss the topic from a business and legal perspective. The session will include discussion of the following:

  • Regulatory and Other Pressures on Banks;
  • Growth of Nonbank Lenders;
  • New Financing Structures;
  • More Tailored Terms;
  • Advantages and Disadvantages; and
  • Cross-border Trends.
