Debt Capital Markets News: March 2014

Deloitte Corporate Finance LLC


The March 2014 issue of Debt Capital Markets News includes the following highlights:

  • Leveraged loan pricing approaches pre-crisis levels - Leveraged loan pricing continues to decline for both institutional as well as for pro-rata loans. After a small up-tick in pricing in the third quarter of this year, pricing continued to decline, a trend that has continued since the aftermath of the 2012 sovereign debt downgrade.
  • Refinancing activity continues to dominate the market given relatively modest M&A and LBO activity - Refinancing activity remains the predominant use of proceeds representing 47% of new loan volume in 2013, relatively in line with 2012 levels.
  • 2013 middle market new loan volume remains subdued - Unlike the large corporate leveraged loan market, middle market volume remains well below pre-crisis levels. However, 2013 volume showed signs of life increasing 32% to $13 billion compared to $10 billion in 2012.
