Deloitte Corporate Finance LLC
The May 2012 issue of Debt Capital Markets News includes the following highlights:
- Loan pricing declines in Q1 2012 - After increasing during the first three quarters of 2011, new issue leveraged loan pricing declined in Q4 2011, and the trend continued into Q1 2012.
- Refinancings dominate loan issuances - Refinancings continued to dominate new issuances in Q1 2012, accounting for 59% of new issue leveraged loans.
- Middle market maturity wall remains significant - Much of the maturity wall that was comprised of larger, broadly syndicated loans has been refinanced, extended or exchanged. However, high levels of middle market debt are still scheduled to come due over the next several years due to elevated volumes of loans that were issued at the peak of the market in the 2006-2007 time period.
