Lending Principles in Investment Banking

Course Overview

This training course on structured and specialised financing techniques will be taught around several major topics employing in-depth analysis of all aspects related to the field. The course has a strong focus on key investment banking concepts as well as on acquisition and leverage finance principles. The focus will also be on identifying situations that call for highly leveraged finance solutions (typically acquisitions or long dated projects) and the design and pricing of various loans and mezzanine instruments that support such transactions.

Examples of such situations include management buyouts, financing acquisitions, defensive financial restructuring, recapitalisations and asset-based financing techniques. The financing techniques for projects, using large sums of long tenor debt, will also be covered. A catalyst for leveraged buyouts and a means to enhance equity returns is the so-called mezzanine finance that falls between senior debt and pure equity.

This training course explains why and when project sponsors, management teams or private equity investors can employ sizable amounts of debt and in what form. The course is mainly from a financier’s vantage point and will reveal the thinking and considerations of lenders to such transactions.

In this information-packed event of instruction and application, we offer an economic analysis of the valuation and price negotiations in acquisitions, determining the sources and uses of a funding deal, an insight into when these transactions succeed, pay down and exit strategies, methods of cash-flow modelling and a framework for choosing among alternative leverage and mezzanine techniques.

The course also includes various examples of actual financings and offers hands-on exercises which will give participants the opportunity to augment their understanding of deals through group work, presentations and discussions.
